Rug Care




» Rotating your rug every six  months will help you avoid uneven wear and tear.

» We recommend having your rug professionally cleaned every three to six years depending on use.

» Using an anti-slip pad under your rug will extend the life of your rug, prevent sliding and protect your floors.

» For additional rug care advice please contact a professional carpet/ rug cleaner.






Jute


This strong, silky soft, organic fibre is derived from plants native to India. Jute is a breathable, cost-effective fibre that adds a natural element to eco-friendly households all over the world.


Care Instructions

» Natural fibres are prone to being absorbent and are best suited for dry areas in your home.

» Avoid using Jute rugs in bathrooms, kitchens, and wet areas as this will decrease the longevity of this fibre.

» Rotate or flip your jute rug every three to six months to avoid uneven wear and tear

» Lightly vacuum as powerful vacuums may damage the weaved fibres and cause fraying

» Avoid spills as this fibre is not designed to get wet

» Use a dry absorbent microfibre cloth to gently dab over spills or stains





Cotton


This strong natural fibre is lightweight, soft, and low maintenance. Known for holding dye well this tough fibre is frequently paired with wool and jute fibres, creating exquisite deigns in a range of neutral and vibrant tones as seen in our Jute and Scandi collections.

Wool


The fibre we can’t live without!... This incredibly versatile fibre is flame retardant, warm in winter and cool in summer, with natural elasticity allowing it to be made into soft piles that hold their shape.


New wool rugs are prone to light shedding occurring in the first three to six months. Shedding renews the fibre and keeps your wool rug looking fresh and new for many years. Hand knotted, felted wool piles are a low shed option as they are tightly woven holding the fibres in place.


Care Instructions

» Lightly vacuum once a week using a hard floor attachment on a light setting to avoid loosening fibres. 

(Don’t forget to vacuum the base of your rug occasionally as dirt can accumulate here as well)

» When spills may cause a stain, you can apply a small amount of mild soap with warm water and blot excess liquid with paper towel or colourless cloth.
