Your Hand-Knotted rug is an investment piece, with proper care this rug will last a lifetime and become a truly cherished heirloom piece. This collection of rugs is made by nomadic tribesmen, each knot skillfully tied by hand in rich and vibrant colours to produce a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. Tribal & Vintage rugs embrace wear and tear which is inherent to their uniqueness and history and add to their beauty and charm. The very nature of handmade rugs gives them a unique pattern that includes variations in color, shades and hues. These color variations are known as Abrash and are one of the hallmark characteristics of authentic Oriental rugs. Abrash rugs are particularly true of older or and tribal nomadic rugs.
To clean your rug, brush or vacuum with a suction-only (no bristles) appliance regularly to prevent the build up of damaging dust and grit. Vacuuming the back of the rug every now and again will keep it dust free and help prevent moths, it will also reduce shedding over
time. Rugs should also be rotated occasionally to even out any areas of wear or un-even sun fade.
A certain amount of shedding and sprouting is normal in wool rugs. 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. Professionally clean for large stains.
