The Story of Our Grampian Checked Rugs and Runners

The story of the inspiration behind our Grampian Checked Rugs and Runners Collection.

The Inspiration

Inspired by a recent trip into the amazing Grampians mountains ranging from central to the highlands of Scotland. We set out to put together a collection of tartan/ checked rugs to celebrate the beauty of this amazing area, our collection of Grampian check rugs and runners are the result. 

Stretching from the North Eastern Scottish Highlands,West of Aberdeen and across central Scotland the Grampians are an impressive collection of mountains that included the infamous Ben Nevis, the wild and wonderful Ben Macdui and the beautiful Cairn Gorm overlooking the picturesque town of Aviemore. An awe inspiring sight these mountains are beautiful, wild and rugged and a must see for any fan of the natural countryside. From wild untamed mountain peaks to cute picnic sites with signed walks this area is perfectly suited to be enjoyed by everyone, from the amateur walker to the thrill seeking professional hiker.

 

Our Grampian collection of checked patterned rugs are designed and patterned in traditional colours inspired by the mountain mosses, ferns, fauna and trees. Obviously we could not put a collection of Scotland inspired designs together without being influenced by old Scottish tartan colours and patterns. 

Tartan has become a symbol of Scottish history and culture and is associated with the kilts and clothing of various ancient clans of the mountains, each with their own unique designs.

The Collection

Within the Bela Casa Home Grampian Rug and Runners Collection we have seven fashionable colours in the range red, sage, black, red and tan, blue, beige, black and red. 

 

Quality

Quality is always very important to us so only a hard wearing rug would do so they can stand up to daily usage without showing signs of wear, they also need to be easy to maintain and clean. our Grampian rugs certainly tick all the boxes. With bound edges and a heavy duty woven backing these rugs are built to last and retain their colour. They designed in England and manufactured in Turkey from a incredibly hard wearing 100% Polypropylene material.

The Sizes

We wanted to retain standard sizes for rugs but also include a runner for those long narrow hallways and kitchen areas. Hopefully within the convenient sizes of 80 x 150 cm, 120 x 170 cm, 160 x 230 cm and a hallway runner 60 x 230 cm you will find the perfect size rug.

We also wanted to bring you affordable quality so starting at £34.99 this range of rugs are certainly not going to break the bank.

Usage

Our Grampian rugs are perfect for many areas of the home and can be used as a statement piece, in a lounge, hallway, kitchen or bedroom. Rugs are often placed directly in front of the hearth / fireplace, this was traditionally to protect the flooring from flying embers of the old open fires. They can also be used in doorways, in front of an Aga, under a table or in a narrow hallway. The hard wearing nature, design and colour give you endless possibilities and usage around your home.

 

Rugs can bring a room to life and add a little home comfort to hard flooring like wood, stone or tiles. The timeless designs and colours of the Grampian range along with the high manufacturing quality with hard wearing materials will stand the test of time so expect to get many years of use and enjoyment from these very special rugs.
