When Jeneva Bell’s dog, Bambi, had an accident on her expensive rug, she was frustrated by the fact that it couldn’t be washed. Bell created her own type of rug called Ruggable.
Ruggable makes area rugs and pillow covers that can be washed in any home washing machine. The top “rug” portion can be easily removed from the recycled polyester non-slip backing.
Ruggable has a very large following on Instagram, with more than 380,000 followers who regularly post their rug mishaps and then the cleaning results after washing. The polyester rug cover has a polyurethane waterproof barrier sandwiched between the top surface, made from 100% woven polyester chenille, and the bottom surface, made of 100% polyester knit. The barrier blocks dirt, odor, and liquids from penetrating the cover’s bottom layer and the pad.
The company has received hundreds of positive reviews, even from finicky sites such as the Business Insider.
Ruggable maintains a corporate office in Gardena, California.
