MAKE YOUR LUXURY LAST LONGER

We know you want to enjoy the luxury for a longer tenor and therefore herewith we advice you with small tips to take care of your carpets/rugs and extend their life.

 

KNOWING YOUR RUG


All rugs are handmade by skilled artisans, or in a specialty manufacturing facility, and are checked to meet quality standards before shipment.

 

Color


No two rugs are the same. Slight color variations are common for handmade rugs, as dye lots may change over a period of time.

 

SHEDDING


All wool rugs will shed. Shedding will subside over time, depending on traffic and wear. It typically takes 20-25 vacuums, at a minimum, to curtail shedding. Some will shed for the lifetime of the rug.

 

Sprouts


Loose fibers, or sprouts, are a normal part of the break-in process of handmade rugs. To remove sprouts, use a small pair of scissors to snip them off even with the pile.

Do not pull the fiber out, as this can cause a deterioration of the backing.

 

Creases


If your rug has been rolled or folded for shipping, it may include creases. Creases should disappear within a week or two when the rug is laid out flat. Reverse rolling the rug overnight will help.

 

Odor


Odors are caused by dyes, yarns and shipping for long distances in sealed wrap.
Most odors dissipate within a week once the rug is removed from the shipping wrap.

 

Fading


If exposed to direct sunlight, rug colors typically fade over time, even if they are fade resistant.

 

Wear



As a general rule, rugs of all materials and constructions should be rotated every 3-6 months to balance color and evenly distribute wear.
