EXTEND THE LIFE OF YOUR FAMILY HEIRLOOMS
We hand wash every rug. The artisans that weave rugs have been hand washing for thousands of years. When your rug arrives we inspect and photograph it. It is then dusted and prepared for an old world hand washing. The rug is then hung to dry. Once the rug is dry it is hand groomed. We then recommend applying a permanent fabric protectant to guard against staining. Your rug is then wrapped and ready for pick up or delivery.

Rugs that are made from natural fibers can be damaged by using these methods. We use unique cleaning processes to insure we take the best possible care of your heirlooms.
