What is the inspiration behind the Monasch Collection?

This collection was inspired by nature’s perfections and built upon four pillars: health, durability, craftsmanship and comfort. Wool rugs contribute to a healthier indoor environment by capturing fine particles like dust and pollen and absorbing VOCs. Monasch rugs also contribute to a healthier world environment because they are crafted with renewable and sustainably harvested wool. Wool biodegrades, and with the removable and recyclable Niaga® backing, Monasch rugs are produced with circularity in mind.

To learn more about Best Wool and our partnership, head over to our blog post The Monasch Collection by Best Wool.

Both wool and the Niaga® backing are durable materials that when combined create a rug that will be enjoyed for years to come. Best Wool’s team of skilled craftsmen—from the shepherds to the thread spinners, the designers to the rug builders—bring decades of expertise and inspiration into every Monasch woolen rug. Add to that the unbeatable comfort of wool and you have a rug that radiates coziness, beauty, and character.

Traceability Is Key


Expect complete transparency with a Monasch rug.

Each Monasch rug comes with a product passport, unlocked by scanning a unique QR code located on the back of the rug. The product passport provides access to essential information about your rug, including the source of the wool, the backing, and how to return it sustainably at the end of its life cycle. Additionally, each rug comes with a woolen, hand-knit bag containing a QR code instruction guide.

This is how Monasch fulfills its promise to design rugs with complete circularity in mind.

What is the Niaga® backing?

Niaga®️ backing is a polyester backing that is used with mono- or duo-carpets with the goal of reuse and recyclability.

  • A mono-carpet with Niaga®️ backing is a carpet made with one material: polyester.

  • A duo-carpet consists of the polyester Niaga®️ backing and one other material: wool.

The Monasch Collection represents a duo-carpet: you can remove the Niaga®️ backing from the wool weave, creating two distinct materials that can be recycled, reused, or in the case of wool, biodegrade back into nature.

Will a Monasch rug match my style?


The rug designs of the Monasch Collection are compositions of colors, hues, and textural patterns that span styles from understated yet classic to vibrant and modern. From undyed wool to saturated color, and dynamic or subtle patterns, finding the right rug to add calm to a space or energize a room is easy.

Details make a difference. All wool rugs from the Monasch Collection are available as a custom area rug and can be finished with a Felted Wool, Leather, Linen Wrap, or Blind Soft cloth border or a serged edge.
