RILIEVO is Tigmi Trading's first designed rug collection - featuring five designs and six Tigmi-inspired colour palettes.
An exploration of geometrical forms and an interplay between positive and negative space created by shadows cast from relief elements - the result is a beautifully sublime, one colour rug made from 100% New Zealand wool and natural linen.
Each carpet is made to order and is hand-knotted & hand-carved by expert artisans in Nepal who apply ancient techniques to modern designs, that are crafted to be cherished for many generations.
Each design is available in 6 colour-ways, expertly blended from high-quality organic dyes free from harmful chemicals.
RILIEVO is certified by GoodWeave, a non-profit organisaton that works to end child labour in the rug industry and to ensure a transparent and ethical production process.
In partnership with ReForest Now, one tree is planted for every rug sold. Your purchase contributes to protecting, conserving, and regenerating Australia’s precious and biodiverse rainforests. Find out more here.
Sweeping your rug every few days with a soft broom will remove most surface dust. Don’t use a brush or broom that has coarse bristles as this may damage your rug’s delicate fibres.
HANG RUG AND BEAT IT
Hang your rug over a clothesline and beat it lightly with the broom to remove trapped dust. Wear a disposable mask when you do this, to avoid inhaling the dust particles.
Do not use excessive force and don’t hang the rug over a fence, this may cause damage to the reverse side.
VACUUM EVERY WEEK/SECOND WEEK
Vacuuming is still the best way to remove household dust and debris from any carpet surface, including a silk rug. Just remember not to use use any heavy-duty brush attachments as you could stretch and harm the silk fibres.
ABSORB ODORS AND MOISTURE
Linen rugs are just as prone to becoming smelly as other rugs, but there's an easy way to freshen them – household baking soda! A gentle yet effective natural deodoriser that won’t leave a fragrance, but absorbs stale odours left behind by pets or cigarette smoke.
If the bad odour is caused by moisture, baking soda can fix that too as it is a hygroscopic substance.
Simply sprinkle the baking soda liberally over your silk rug. Sweep it across the rug with the soft broom, or move it around on the surface with your fingers. Leave it to sit for at least two hours and then vacuum thoroughly.
Remove any excess food with a spoon and blot any fluid with a soft damp cloth, if necessary some diluted hand detergent.
For problem areas, use a blotting rather than a rubbing motion to avoid spreading or grinding in the stain. Follow treatment with a clear water rinse and blot dry or use an appropriate wet/dry vacuum.
If you do employ the expertise of a professional cleaning service, please let them know that we don't recommend using chemicals for cleaning especially on delicate fibers like linen and silk. Linen is more delicate than wool and reacts differently to chemicals. All of our rugs are washed vigorously after they come off loom using only mild detergent and water.
