What are our rugs made from?

We blend different fibres together to create high-quality rugs with a lovely texture each with subtle pattern and colour differences.

Viscose: provides a soft feel and subtle sheen finish to the rugs, often combined with wool to create texture and patern

Cotton: traditional cotton fibre is used for rug backings

Jute: a sustainable natural fibre which needs to be properly cared for as colours may soften in direct sunlight

Tip 1

Rugs will shed fibres especially when new. Vacuum rugs regularly to remove dirt and excess fibre. Use a suction type vacuum cleaner with a rotating brush attachment to prevent damage. If loose strands occur, trim with scissiors, do not pull

Tip 2

Blot wet spills with an absorbent tissue, do not rub - use caution as colour transfer to other objects could occur & damage property

Tip 3

Clean with mild carpet shampoo or consult a professional carpet cleaner for a deep clean
