CARING OF THE RUG

Each PCR rug is one of a kind, handmade by artisans. Like any other handmade item, it can have minor irregularities or variations (slight differences in size or colour) which are a sign of authenticity and value.
Knotted or tufted, the tension of the loom during weaving or the environmental humidity conditions can result in variations of up to 2% in the final measurements of the item. This should be considered physiological and acceptable.
Dyeing is also done manually, so the colours of the rug may vary slightly from the sample.


General recommendations
It is essential to choose the type of rug according to the use that will be made of it, and in accordance with the characteristics of the place for which it was designed. The rug should be placed in dry environments, avoiding basements or outdoor areas.
The rug should not be exposed to direct sunlight, which may cause fading. If it is exposed to sunlight, turn the rug often so that fading is regular and therefore avoid the formation of obvious discolouring.
Because the fleece has been cut recently, a new rug tends to release excess wool for a few weeks. This phenomenon will decrease with the use of the rug over time.

  • At delivery
    After transport, let the rug breathe, allowing it to lie perfectly flat and return to its full beauty.
  • Care
    A rug is intended to last for many years. Its age increases its value. To protect its original splendour over time, please follow these recommendations:
  • Cleaning
    Vacuum frequently, on both sides (from the back at least twice a year), using a vacuum cleaner with no rotating brushes that could abrade the yarns. Beating the rug could damage the knots. Vacuum the fringes with care. Refresh the rug using a damp white cloth, and mild soap to restore the shine of its colours. Have it deep cleaned by a specialised cleaner.
  • Do not fold
    Furniture inevitably causes creases/depressions in the rug. To remove, place a damp cloth on the crease or depression, and press with a hot iron in the direction of the fleece. Attention! The iron must never be in direct contact with the rug.
  • Stains
    If liquids or other materials are spilled on the rug, remove the stain immediately before it dries. Clean with a damp cloth (and with a small amount of gentle detergent, if necessary), taking care not to soak the rug. For difficult stains, such as grease, ink or other chemicals, we recommend that you have the rug cleaned by a specialised cleaner.
