Cleaning/Maintenance Instructions

How do I care for my Hand Tufted Wool Rug?

*Please keep away from water or moisture!

*Shedding - All wool rugs will shed. Shedding will subside over time, depending on traffic and wear. It typically takes 20-25 vacuums, at a minimum, to curtail shedding. Some will shed for the lifetime of the rug – this is the nature of the fibre.

*Fading - If exposed to sunlight, rug colours typically fade over time, even if they are fade resistant. The African UV is particularly harsh and so we cannot determine the time period before fading occurs.

*Creases - If your rug has been rolled or folded for shipping, it may include creases. Creases should disappear within a week or two when the rug is laid out flat. Reverse rolling the rug overnight will help.

*Sprouting - Certain rugs can sprout where the fibres will come loose, creating a ‘tuft. To remove tufts, use a small pair of scissors to snip them off even with the pile. Do not pull the fiber out, as this can cause a deterioration of the backing.

* Lift, don’t drag - Woven rugs need a little extra love and care. To avoid ‘pull’s, take care when moving furniture over the rugs to avoid ‘pulls’ and lifts in the weave.

*Spills - Clean spills immediately by blotting with a cloth or sponge.

*Professional cleaning recommended, if necessary.

*Do not under any circumstances machine wash or tumble dry.

How do I care for my Kantha Quilt?

*Professional Dry Cleaning/Wet Cleaning highly recommended


We regularly test wash our Kantha's and have found that if great care is taken then...

    • Very gentle, short (15 minute) machine wash in cold water.
    • Use a gentle, short spin (no more than 800rpm)
    • Use chemical free laundry liquid.
    • Wash strong coloured items separately.
    • Do not wring or tumble dry.
    • Dry flat away from strong, direct sunlight.
