Care: We recommend vacuuming this rug regularly to keep it clean. However, for cleaning stains we recommend using a damp cloth (without any detergents) and trying to remove the stain by dabbing at it. If this does not remove the stain, the rug should be sent to a professional cleaner for flat washing. The rug should occasionally be shaken or beaten with a carpet beater. To prolong the rug's life, we recommend using our rug underlay to increase the design's longevity and keep flooring in good condition. To preserve the natural colour, regular direct sunlight should be avoided.

Davis ASKS:

"Is this rug rough?"

"Like all woollen rugs, our Melby collection is rather coarse than smooth. Because the Melby has a height of 2 cm, however, the rug is still soft to stand on, and will provide a comfortable layer underfoot."


Emma ASKS:

"Why would you recommend a rug underlay exactly?"

"As well as ensuring your carpet stands the test of time and maintains its fabulous condition, a rug underlay also protects the floor in your home."


Selina ASKS:

"What does Care & Fair mean?"

"Care & Fair is a charity that works with rug producers in India, Pakistan, and Nepal. Their certification signifies that no child-labour was used during the rug production process. In addition, proceeds raised through the organisation are used to build schools and hospitals in the communities where the rugs were produced."
