Rug-specific Care

Care by Rug Type

Hand-knotted Rugs

Avoid direct and continuous exposure to sunlight as it will result in color fading. Rotating your rug every few months will help avoid uneven wear and tear and extend its life. If there are loose yarns, snip them with a scissor instead of pulling them out. Use rug protectors under the legs of heavy furniture to avoid flattening piles. Expect shedding in the first 3 to 6 months. It will decrease over time. Never fold the rug. Store your rug by rolling its front side out and wrapping it in a cloth for protection. Get your rug cleaned by a professional at least once every 2 - 3 years. Clean spills immediately by blotting them with a clean absorbent cloth to keep a stain from setting in. Ensure all cleaning products are removed and the rug is dry. You can also explore our stain-resistant coating for better protection. Vacuum regularly and in different directions, on a low-power setting and without a beater brush as it may cause damage

Flatweave Rugs

Avoid direct and continuous exposure to sunlight as it will result in color fading. Rotating your rug every few months will help avoid uneven wear and tear and extend its life. Vacuum regularly on a low-power setting to avoid dust from accumulating, especially if you are using them as outdoor rugs. Most flatweaves are washable. Read instructions carefully before cleaning manually. Use a rug-pad to keep your rug from slipping away. We recommend professional cleaning once every 2 - 3 years

Hand-tufted Rugs

Avoid direct and continuous exposure to sunlight as it will result in color fading. Rotating your rug every few months will help avoid uneven wear and tear and extend its life. If there are any loose yarns, snip them with a scissor instead of pulling them out. Use rug protectors under the legs of heavy furniture to avoid flattening piles. Comb the long piles of a hand-tufted rug to keep them neat and improve the life of the rug. Clean spills immediately by blotting them with a clean absorbent cloth to keep a stain from setting in. Ensure all cleaning products are removed and the rug is dry. You can also explore our stain-resistant coating for better protection. Vacuum regularly and in different directions, in a low-power setting and without a beater brush as it may cause damage.

Since a flatweave is very light, a rug pad will avoid slipping of the rug.

Handloom Rugs

Avoid direct and continuous exposure to sunlight as it will result in color fading. Rotating your rug every few months will help avoid uneven wear and tear and extend its life. If there are any loose yarn, snip them with a scissor instead of pulling them out. Use rug protectors under the legs of heavy furniture to avoid flattening piles. Expect shedding in the first 3 to 6 months. It will decrease over time. Vacuum regularly to keep your rug tidy. Never fold the rug.

Shag rugs should be cleaned using spray extraction.

Vacuuming without a beater bar is best for shag rugs, however, they can also be effectively cleaned by simply shaking any dirt out.

Outdoor Rugs

For all-over cleaning, spray the rug with soapy water, rinse with a hose and leave to dry.

For spot-cleaning, remove any remaining matter and clean with soapy water and a sponge.
