Hug Rug® Mats stop dirty footprints in their tracks! They trap up to 95% of dust, wet mud, and dirt from the bottom of shoes, boots, and paws. The face fabric is made of 90% cotton recycled from the clothing industry combined with 10% polyester microfibers that attract dust and dirt molecules. The base fabric is made from recycled drink bottles and bottle tops and the rubber backing is produced from discarded tires. Even the vegetable-based printing inks are made from recycled materials. These mats and runners can be machine washed in cold water and become softer and more absorbent after each wash. Each Hug Rug® Mat and runner is thoughtfully made in Yorkshire, England.
