RUG Care Instruction


Woll Rugs

Wool rugs are extremely durable, making them well suited to entries, hallways, kitchens and dining rooms. Lanolin, a naturally occurring oil in wool, makes wool rugs more resistant to stains than other materials.

Shedding is inherent to wool rugs and occurs primarily within the first 3-6 months. All our wool rugs use long-fiber wool, which is less prone to shedding than shorter fibers.

Care Instructions :

  • Rotate the rug every 3 months to avoid uneven fading and wear.
  • Vacuum regularly in one direction (not back and forth) using suction only, no bristles. Regular vacuuming will reduce shedding over time.
  • Avoid pulling loose yarns. If necessary, clip them to be even with the pile height.
  • Spot clean as needed using a damp (not wet) cloth with plain water; don’t use soap or cleaning products, as they could damage or fade the rug.
  • For larger, deeper stains, send the rug to a professional service with experience cleaning fine rugs.
  • To preserve the life of the rug, we recommend using a rug pad.

Silk/silk Blend Rugs

Silk rugs are prized for their exquisite luster and rich texture. Silk fibers lend themselves to dense knotting and can be used to create rugs with highly detailed patterns.

Care Instructions :

  • Rotate the rug every 3 months to avoid uneven fading and wear
  • Vacuum as needed using suction only, no bristles.
  • Vacuum at least once a week, twice if in a high-traffic area. Use suction only, no bristles.
  • Do not pull any loose threads; use scissors to trim protruding ends.
  • Remove spills immediately by blotting with a clean, undyed cloth; press firmly around the spill to absorb as much as possible. Lay rug flat to dry. If drying under the sun, lay the rug face down
  • Professional cleaning is recommended; send the rug to a professional service with experience cleaning fine rugs. Do not dry clean.
  • Store the rug by rolling it front side out and wrapping it in cloth for protection. Never fold your rug for storage.
