What pile height are your rugs?

Pile heights vary from rug to rug. You can find the details of pile height within the “Additional” tab on each rug. If you require further specific information on any rug please use our contact form HERE.

What happens if I spill something on the rug?

If in the unfortunate event that you have a spillage/accident on your rug, we recommend warm water and blotting with white kitchen roll as soon as possible. Never rub, always blot. We don’t offer any cleaning products/stain removers.

Is it okay to use a vacuum cleaner on a new rug?

Generally speaking, it’s perfectly fine to use a vacuum cleaner on a new rug – especially rugs that are flat-woven. However, we’d recommend caution with rugs that have particularly long fibres. For example, any form of shaggy rug may potentially snag in the mechanism of the vacuum, which can be a problem. In this case, you can look at other options such as dry-cleaning or handheld vacuums.

The fibres of my rug are shedding… why?

If your rug is new, it’s expected that there’ll be a little bit of shedding to start with, especially if it’s a wool rug. This is a simple side-effect of the manufacturing process. Shedding with new rugs is generally more common with shaggier rug piles. If your rug is older and is shedding, there can be a couple of reasons, but primarily it’s wear and tear that’s the culprit. We’d recommend rotating your rugs a couple of times a year to ensure no one spot is subject to excess foot-traffic.
