Hari Raya season of gatherings is upon us, and we all know what that means: home refresh time! Check out our Raya Bazaar homeware collection which includes the most gorgeous rugs to wow your guests.
Although, if your rug is still in good shape or you have a family heirloom carpet, a good tidying up is probably all you need.
We love to help you get tasks done and dusted, so gather 'round the rug and follow our simple care tips that we personally learned from handling hundreds of handmade rug designs.
1. Vacuum clean.

2. Address spills asap.
Remove spills immediately. Use a clean cloth or dry paper towel to blot excess liquid.
3. Be kind to the fibres.
4. Leave it to the pros.
Below are images of our rugs reinstated in customers' homes after we professionally cleaned them. What gives us pleasure about doing this job is that we see for ourselves that our rugs age really well. Some of these pieces were bought as far back as 2016 when we just started selling rugs!
5. Know thy materials.
If you have a viscose rug, vacuum regularly using the gentlest setting possible, as vigorous beating will wear the rug out more quickly. Viscose can absorb and retain water which can cause yellowing, so it should never be washed.
If you have a leather rug, take the rug outdoors and shake it out, instead of vacuuming them. This gives the rug a chance to “breathe”. To remove dirt and grime, use a brush designed for brushing fur, such as a wire pet brush, and gently brush in the direction of the grain.
6. Ask us anything.
