Whilst we ensure all our pieces arrive in excellent condition, many of our products are one off vintage carpets and small signs of wear are to be expected. Our vintage items are professionally cleaned and repaired (if needed) but some sign of usage is to be expected. We believe the imperfections add to the beauty, character and story of each piece.
Like most things, our pieces require regular maintenance in order to last as long as possible. This includes regular vacuuming, rotation and periodic professional cleaning. As most of our carpet are made from premium quality wool, one of the best ways to refresh your carpet is to hang it outside on a sunny day in the fresh breeze.
In the case of a stain it is best to spot clean to and remove stain with a moist towel of warm water immediately. Do not let the stain dry. Lift as much as possible without rubbing. Always check for colour fastness prior by testing a small patch.
Professional cleaning should only be done ‘off-site' - avoid ‘in-house' services. We advise for a proper clean to consult a trained professional in a controlled environment.
