Animal activists will be thrilled when they lay eyes on the Bommel collection by Myk. This carpet collection features a unique bear skin rug that has not been crafted from an actual bear. In fact, it doesn't even look like a realistic faux skin rug. Instead, it has been made using a pom-pom technique. All the carpets in the Bommel collection by Myk boast the same technique, hence its name, which is the German word for pom-pom.

A fun and playful addition to any home, the Bommel collection by Myk is made entirely by hand. To create these carpets, hundreds of carefully selected, high-quality wool threads are bundled, rolled, tied and cut. The nearly 1,300 wool pom-poms are used for each rug, which can end up weighing up to 45 kilograms.
