Most Flokati rugs still come from Greece and are still painstakingly hand-knotted, for that perfect look and feel. Wool is hand-knotted through a sturdy backing material (usually woven wool) and lifted to form a thick, yet soft, durable "cloud."

There are several thickness styles available on the market - from short and fluffy, to tall and wild, giving you the flexibility to choose what's best for your situation.

Flokati rugs are crafted of 100% wool (usually from Greece or New Zealand) and have a wild, fur-like body with a thickly woven backing. They’re naturally static resistant, so they can be used near computers or sensitive electronics without causing a problem.

Some Flokati rug-makers still use the age-old water “ripening” technique on the rugs. They take the Flokatis to an area near mountain waterfalls, where they’re washed for a certain amount of time in the raging waters. The flow of the river lifts, fluffs, and strengthens the natural wool, giving it a unique feel that can’t be duplicated by any other method.

Flokatis are carefully hand-knotted and tufted to ensure maximum softness, durability, and warmth.

Although they’re perfect for warming cold feet in your winter cabin, they’re still ideal for summer months, where their cloud-like softness makes any room feel plush.

Classic Flokatis are white, tan, or other shades of earth tones, making them irresistible as a design basic. But if rustic colors aren’t your preference, you’ll also find them in hot fuchsia, perky lime green, and brilliant yellow.
