Quality handmade carpets are beautiful and durable than any other kind there are in the market today. What does, however, ensure long life and make it a valuable family heirloom is following these simple care instructions diligently

Cleaning

Before you use any kind of vacuuming device onto your rug, it is recommended that you put the carpet out in the sun for a while. You will need to see to it that the rug does not receive direct sunlight for more than a couple of hours after which you may begin vacuuming it.

Exposure

Handmade rugs do not require constant exposure to the sun as this can lead to colour fastness resulting in the colours fading faster than usual. As a rug ages with time, its colours tend to gradually fade giving it the antique appearance of a collectible. 

Fringes

They are extensions of the warp carefully tied into a knot to prevent displacement of the yarn. We recommend proceeding with caution when dealing with the fringes of a carpet as once unravelled, they permanently hamper the rug unless attended to in a timely fashion. 

Insects

Rugs that are in regular use do not usually encounter these issues, however, if you have carpets lying around in spare rooms or areas that are not utilised all that often then you may need to have them rolled and stored properly. 

Spills

A liquid spill like water, coffee, wine, milk, ink, blood etc. demands immediate attention. Your first response should be to gently apply an absorbent paper towel and gradually increase pressure. After you are done, use dry paper towels to squeeze out the liquid. 

Wear and Tear

This is a commonly occurring phenomenon with hand woven carpets especially if they are placed under a coffee table, sofa, armchair etc. We advise shifting the furniture every now and then as it allows the pile to stand up straight maintaining its original form thereby keeping the rug intact for longer.
