Viscose is a man made material, commonly used in clothing and many home furnishings like cushions, rugs & carpets. It is known for being extremely soft and has a similar texture to silk or cotton. Viscose rugs have become more popular over the past couple of years, primarily due to their soft nature, but affordable price point. Known under many other names, viscose rugs are perfect for living rooms or areas in your house that have low to moderate foot traffic. A lot of people also like viscose rugs as the synthetic fibres do not insulate heat. This keeps the cool when touching, which is great over the hot summer months.
