Let's Start with the Basics
A high-quality, natural wool rug can last a lifetime, especially with proper care. Vacuum your rug lightly, at least once a week. Different styles and piles will need different settings, but regular vacuuming can remove debris and help prevent shedding. Use a low suction setting and ditch the beater brush.
Keep it Mild
Steer clear of liquid detergents. Our handwoven rugs are made with natural fibers that can be damaged by harsh chemicals and household cleaners. When in doubt, professional cleaning is always best.
Placement is Key
Avoid direct sunlight and moisture. Prolonged sun exposure or moisture can fade the colors and patterns of your favorite rug. Whether you’re placing a bathroom rug or a kitchen rug, be sure to think about how sunlight can change in your space throughout the day.
Always use a Rug Pad
We advise always use a rug pad. If you’re wondering whether a rug pad is really necessary, the answer is yes. Rug pads help prevent everyday slipping and sliding, helping your rug lay smooth to avoid wrinkles or warping.
If you’re looking for an eco-friendly option, our felt rug pads are a great choice. Made from felt with a solid, natural rubber backing, this rug pad is needle-punched, allowing your rug and floors to breathe while also preventing dirt and dust.Shop Rug Pads
GENERAL RUG CARE
Vacuum rugs lightly at least once a week using only low suction and no beater brush, as this may damage the rug. More frequent vacuuming will help prevent shedding - particularly for high-pile rugs. Avoid placing rugs in prolonged direct sunlight as this can cause fading. Rotate rugs every 3-6 months. This will help prevent excessive wear and fading in one area
Cotton and Wool Rug Care
Because cotton or wool rugs are handcrafted with only natural materials, it is normal to see loose fibers or shedding in the first six months. Blot spills immediately with a clean cloth - act quickly to prevent drying. Avoid harsh chemicals and household cleaners as they may damage or fade the rug. When in doubt, professional cleaning is always best.
Jute Rug Care
Because jute rugs are handcrafted with only natural materials, it is normal to see loose fibers or shedding in the first six months. Do not use liquids for stain treatment. Instead, use a dry rug shampoo or baking soda. Sprinkle the powder on the rug and allow it to sit for a couple of hours. Vacuum up the powder and flip the rug over to repeat on the other side. When in doubt, professional cleaning is always best.
