All our rugs are made from the finest natural materials. We choose pure cotton or sheep's wool, dye it carefully, and weave it for strength. Following these suggestions will ensure your rugs can be treasured for a lifetime.
Some shedding with natural fiber rugs is normal and will diminish over time. Avoid placing rugs in prolonged direct sunlight as this can cause fading.
Vacuum lightly on a low setting without the beater brush, as this may damage rug.
Rotate your rug every 3-6 months. This will help prevent excessive wear and fading in one area.
The use of a rug pad will keep your rug lying smooth and flat and will help prevent slippage.
Blot spills immediately with a clean cloth or paper towels- act quickly to prevent drying. Avoid harsh chemicals and household cleaners as they may damage or fade rug.
When in doubt, professional cleaning is always going to be your best bet.
Always free shipping within the continental U.S.

I absolutely love this rug. Not only is it sooooo soft, but the neutral colors make it both easy to look good with other furniture and add a bit of texture. Couldn't be happier. Great quality. We have a dog, who sheds a lot (husky) and her hair blends in, which is also a great perk!
I looked at pottery barn at a similar rug but it looked terrible in person, like it had acrylic white cat hair on it. I ordered the “black rug” it’s a nice rug, it is comfortabe and it sheds minimally. It looks significantly less black in person!! I really wish it looked more black!! I think the rug looks about 65% black and 44% white. The edges don’t lay as flat as they ideally would, but it is better than that cheap binding some rugs have. That being said, I think it is a quality rug.
We purchased the Artha rug in ecru and are very pleased with it. It pulls our living room together, has a subtle, but super cool look, and feels nice under our feet. We have hardwood floors and do lots of puzzles, board games, and coloring with my son at the coffee table and the rug is thick and comfortable enough to sit right on it while doing those things, which is so nice. I really love the darker weave that shows through the ecru. The rug has a different look from different angles because of it, so you may want to rotate the rug once you get it to see which effect is best for you. I love it and would purchase again.
We returned because the black stripes were larger and much more defined than we gathered from the photos (the photo of the runner is more accurate). The texture of the rug definitely changes depending on your vantage point. Quality seemed commensurate with price.
