RUG CARE Proper care can ensure that our rugs will last for years to come.

Basic care and cleaning instructions include:

  • Slight color variation is a character of handmade rugs and of the handspun yarn that we use. It is not a defect but their beauty, and it is what separates them from machine-made carpets.
  • Shedding is regular and a normal condition of new rugs.
    It will dissipate over a period of one to two months.
  • Do not use any kind of harsh brushes to clean the carpets. Instead, vacuum regularly to prevent dust and crumbs from settling into the roots of the pile.
  • Turn the carpet around occasionally to equalize wear.
  • Remove spill immediately. Blot with a clean, un-dyed cloth by pressing firmly around the spill to absorb as much as possible.
  • Expose the carpet to the sun for sometime if it gets wet.
  • Occasionally an individual strand can come loose, do not pull on this strand, as you will ruin the integrity of the rug. Use a pair of scissors to trim and even the pile.
  • For hard to remove stains on hand-knotted carpets, professional rug cleaning is recommended!
