I have been searching high and low for the perfect rug that I could put in my son’s room since I purchased this house over a year ago. While I love the look of the natural hard wood floors throughout my house I am always striving to protect them from the destruction that comes from children. I had yet to find one until I came across this beautiful hand crafted, machine washable rug from Lorena Canals Rugs.
I received this item complimentary in exchange for my review, however all expressed opinions are my own. You can find my full disclosures HERE

One of the best features about these rugs is that they are machine-washable and fit in a standard size washing machine. This is great if you have children and babies because lets face it; children are messy!
When I received this rug I was super excited to get it out of the box and onto my floor. I was surprised at how soft this was right out of the packaging and how much more creamier the color was in person. I considered washing it but then decided to just put it in my son’s room but the option to wash it (in my own washing machine! YAY!!) was there later on if the rug would need it.
I originally had thought that I wanted to have this rug in my bedroom but then changed my mind and decided to put it in my son’s room instead. Avery has been insistent on being on the floor since she has been practicing rolling over and I love giving her a safe, clean space to do so. Also, my son’s room is the coolest room in the house so on these hot days that we have been having it is a great place to hang out, read some books and watch Avery try and maneuver her way to her belly.
This rug is perfect and I love everything about it! I have yet to wash it yet but I am sure that the quality will be maintained afterwards! Check them out at Lorena Canals and learn more about how proceeds go to the Sakula project, a project North of India that allows a safe haven for children living in the streets to have a place to be, receive a meal and education. They have a wide range of beautiful rugs to fit your needs!
