One reviewer wrote: “We bought a ruggable Moroccan rug because we wanted a stylish rug that would be able to survive being destroyed by our 10-month-old son. Admittedly, we weren’t sure it would live up to both, but it has exceeded our expectations. Despite our son constantly trying to pull out the threads like grass, my husband spilling a FULL glass of red wine all over it, and multiple other spills, it still looks and feels incredible, and every stain came out with one wash. Our son loves how soft it is, we love the design and durability.”

One reviewer wrote: “This is my first Ruggable- soon to be one of many! Putting it together was a little tricky at first, but once I figured out the trick of rolling it up and lining it up just right there were no issues. What really won me over is the process of washing it; I hadn’t had it a week before knocking over a full cup of coffee onto it, and it washed up great!”

I was worried that keeping it tightly rolled in the box for so long would make it difficult to lay flat, but there were no problems at all. Definitely recommend trying them if you are thinking about it or on the fence.”
