How big are some of our rug ranges? Posted on 20 Jan 15:03 , 0 comments

At Unitex we have ranges of all sizes, ranging from around 4 rugs up to over 40!
As a leading rug distributor it's important to have not only a huge range of design - but design that sells. This is no easy task and takes years of experience, research and planning in order to not only get quantity but quality.
The size of the collection depends on a few things, namely the age of the collection, how many new additions it has had over time, and the original intention of the creator.
Some brands such as Bluebellgrey and Brink & Campman add yearly additions to their ranges, thereby expanding their rug portfolio over time.

Large Ranges

An example of a particularly large and long standing range at Unitex can be found here and seen below within the City Collection (You'll need to be logged in to our B2B platform to view this link)

Large Rug Collection example

100% acrylic - Printed - Tufted - Hard wearing - 8mm pile height
Size - 160 X 110cm, 220 X 150cm, 280 X 190cm, 320 X 230cm

Small Ranges

Other ranges such as our recent addition "Havana" entered the scene with only 5 (gorgeous) rugs.
If a line up focuses on mainly only colour without an emphasis on pattern, this will often be the case.

Size - 225 X 155cm, 280 X 190m, 320 X 230cm


Conveying an Idea

Quite a lot of our ranges are created with one idea in mind, without the need for further expansion.
The best pattern and colours are chosen for a particular idea - and then presented to you.
In cases such as the Spirit range by Rug Culture, this is exactly what happened!
Rug Culture excels at simply presenting a new idea based on current trends - without complicating a specific range with huge selections. To counter this they have an extremely varied and interesting range to choose from, each quite different to the last.

Cowhide rug care and maintenance Posted on 19 Oct 15:13 , 0 comments

cow hide rug cleaning


They look great, they're durable, and great for high traffic areas. What's not to love?
Regardless, as with any type of rug they still do need to be cleaned from time to time - and these rugs need to be cleaned a little differently to your classic wool type rugs.

Lets take a look at the best ways to clean a cow hide rug!


Cow Hide Rug Cleaning: General Information

- Cow hides have a natural grip on their underside and therefore don't really need rug pads to help keep them in place. Because of this, you'll find a fair bit of variation in where these types of rugs live. This type of rug is found on Tiles, vinyl, wood, carpet, and even on the patio.
That being said, it's not a great idea to place this type of rug in direct sun or wet areas due to the slightly more organic nature of the rug. If you leave the rug under direct sunlight too much, the leather may shrink and cause the ends to roll up a little.

- If this rug type is placed in a high traffic area, be sure to rotate it occasionally to help even out the traffic marks.

- Vacuuming is great for this rug, along with the occasional shake out whilst outside. Combing the rug in the same direction as their hairs will help to loosen them up and keep a soft feel, along with getting rid of any dirt you may have missed.

- The longer you leave a spill on the rug, the longer it will have to be absorbed into the leather underneath. That's not a good thing! Do your best to soak up any excess liquid quickly, but while doing so, avoid soaking the leather underneath. A non alkaline soapy solution is best for this (water and shampoo).

- Remove odour and balance the PH levels of the cowhide rug by wiping it with a damp cloth that has been bathed in 5% vinegar and 95% water.

- Cow hides can not be hand or machine washed or dry cleaned.

- All of the above also applies to patchwork cow-hide rugs.


Easy quick guide for liquid stains


Type of Spill

Cleaning Solution

Cleaning Cloth

Visible Puddle


Paper Towel or Dry Cloth

Stain or Hardened Crust

Non-alkaline Soap or Detergent

Water and Organic White Vinegar

Damp Cotton Cloth



Removing food stains

A spoon, knife or brush will do the job here. Scrape in the direction of the fibres. Once the majority of the food has gone, use a damp cloth bathed in either

a) Non alkaline solution

b) 5% vinegar and 95% water

Once done, use a cloth bathed in only water to rinse out the solution. Again, try not to drown the leather underneath.


Removing Grease stains

Use the initial scraping method as mentioned above, but for the actual solution - use organic eucalyptus oil. Remove this oil with water once done.


Steam Cleaning

This is an option, but should only be used if the rug is well and truly in need of a good clean that you feel you can't do yourself! If you choose this option - the rug may get damp but not wet. Make sure to dry the rug very well and keep an eye on it to ensure that it doesn't get too dry.

Unitex Background

Awhile ago, we realized that due to our growth - we were going to be needing some serious upgrades in order to maintain the high level of service our clients have come to expect.

Choosing a platform involves two parts. The platform, and the integration partners.
One of our main criteria was that the transition should be as seamless as possible in order to be able to minimize business disruption.
After much research a choice was made to go with MYOB - and Kilimanjaro Consulting was found.


The Results are in the Rugs
