I was extremely happy when I received our rug. No nasty chemicals smell, the size was perfect, the feeling of the natural fibres was great. I really recommend this brand specially if you have problems with chemicals…
Awesome - glad you love it and thanks for the video! Love seeing the happy homes.
I was looking for a pure wool round rug (no cotton or viscose or art silk as they don’t wear well), and found THE PERFECT rug at Oh Happy Home! This excellent quality NZ pure wool rug looks GORGEOUS and is beautifully textured. I am very happy with both the rug and service received. 👍😃
