Wool carpets have outstanding easycare properties. Flame resistance, stain resistance and resiliency are characteristics inherent of wool and are not achievable by chemical treatments. The high moisture content of wool fibers, along with its protein constituents, provide wool carpets with excellent natural flame resistance. Wool fibers do not support combustion- it is difficult to ignite and is self-extinguishable. The surface of a wool fiber is covered by a thin protective membrane which allows wool the ability to shed water. This membrane prevents water from readily penetrating the individual wool fibers.

Bamboo Silk is popular for a number of reasons, most importantly its luxurious look and feel yet affordable price. Bamboo Silk is versatile and blends easily with other fibres. It is easily dyed and retains vivid colours particularly well. It is renowned for its silk like lustre, appealing drape and superior softness to cotton.
We recommend bamboo silk for light traffic areas as it does absorb moisture – body oils and water. This can discolour and weaken the fabric and result in marking.
The hand woven rug represents the remarkable achievement of many highly skilled artisans. Every stage of this ancient craft, from spinning the wool to trimming the pile of the finished rug, is carried out by hand. First, a set of vertical strings, or “warp” is attached to a loom. Then the wool is woven through the warp strings. The workmanship is evident in these fine rugs.
Bamboo silk rugs are constructed of wood cellulose fibers, which absorb moisture easily, therefore cleaning is not advised.
If cleaning should become necessary, dry cleaning is preferable. However, always check with the dry cleaner since some harsh chemicals may cause discoloration to the fibers.
Do not spot clean with water as cellulose fibers will turn yellow or discolor when wet and may stain after cleaning.
Lighter colors are more susceptible to staining and large, solid areas will show staining more easily.
Avoid placing viscose rugs in high-traffic areas to minimize the need for cleaning.
