Contemporary Heaven launches genuine wool rugs & cushions

A brand new range of genuine wool rugs and cushions from the Australian designer brand Auskin has now been launched at the Contemporary Heaven Website.

Each rug and cushion has been made using finest sheepskin from New Zealand or Australia in such a way that no joins are visible where one skin meets the other.

Sheepskins possess unrivalled qualities that make the genuine natural fibres a better choice than synthetic material.

Wool is soft and tactile, yet unlike many man-made materials of a similar feel , genuine wool fibre is flame retardant meaning that these soft home furnishings are flame retardant up to 600°C without the use of chemicals which may harm the environment.

In addition, wool retains natural oils which make the fibres resistant to household odours and which also help to repel dirt and grease.

Since wool is a sheep’s natural temperature control, the fibres adapt to the environment, becoming cooler on hot days and warmer on cold days. These sheepskin rugs and cushions are also highly anti-static, thanks to the properties of wool fibres.

The exterior of wool fibres is hydrophobic, but while the outside repels moisture, the interior of the fibre is hydrophilic and it is this moisture control which helps keeps static at a minimum. Synthetic fibres cannot mimic these properties and so cannot compete with the natural sheepskin, which is also hypoallergenic.

All Auskin soft furnishings use the best quality sheepskins, giving a luxurious look to the home. The cushions are available in two sizes –one large floor cushion and a smaller size for the sofa. These cushions and rugs are stain resistant, so even the ivory coloured furnishings will retain their beautiful colour.

Modern and sumptuous, these rugs and cushions are made using natural Australian and New Zealand woolskin, which is a product of sustainable farming practices. Auskin have also stated that; “New Zealand and Australian sheep roam green pastures and graze in the same way their wild ancestors did.”

The cushions are available in taupe, linen, ivory, black and chocolate colour varieties, while the rugs are available in ivory or luscious chocolate in sizes from 2ft to 11.5ft.
