What is spot cleaning?

For our naturally dyed rugs woven in Mexico, we do not recommend using any sort of cleaning solvent. Dampen the stained area with cold water using a clean white cloth. Leave spot damp for 10-15 minutes and then gently blot with a dry, white cloth from both sides to draw out the stain. For all of our other wools, we recommend using a wool-safe stain remover. If the stain persists, we recommend dry cleaning.

How should I take care of my wool rug?

Our favorite part about wool rugs is their long lasting nature and durability. Follow these three steps to ensure that your rug has a long and healthy life!

  1. Vacuum once a week, or whenever it needs a little love.
  2. Beat twice a month. Take your rug outside and beat with a broom or your hands to loosen up grit that can get deep within the fibers.
  3. Flip every few months. With exception of our shag rugs, your rug has the same design on either side.
  4. For Pile and Shag Rugs, vacuum on low suction in the direction of the fibers. We recommend vacuuming Pile and Shag Rugs with a rug pad underneath to keep the rug in place while vacuuming.

In the event that your rug gets a small stain, address immediately! Follow the spot cleaning instructions. If the entire rug needs to be cleaned or it is a larger, deeper stain, bring the rug to a professional cleaner.
Wool is naturally water resistant. Dirt and mud will dry into a grit or dust and can simply be vacuumed. If you try to remove mud or dirt while it is still wet, it may result in further staining.

We are happy to offer an automatic 10% discount on the purchase of 2+ pillows, and 15% of 4+ pillows. The automatic pillow discount cannot be used in conjunction with other discounts.

Can I customize a rug by size or color?

Yes! Our rugs are easily customizable by size. A color change may have a custom design fee. Custom rugs are made-to-order with a 90-120 day leadtime and are non-returnable.

What kind of insert comes with my pillows?

Our pillow inserts are made in the USA with synthetic down which is a poly-cotton blend. We chose this option because it is hypoallergenic and cruelty-free. We understand that everyone has a personal preference for their pillow inserts. If you would like to use your own insert, use the code "NOINSERT" at checkout for $10 off each pillow in your cart and they will be shipped without an insert. 

Where in Latin America do you work?

We work with artisan co-ops in Mexico, Guatemala, Peru, Uruguay, and Bolivia. Head to the Artisan Partners page for more information.

How do you choose the other brands you carry in the store and online?

We like to support brands that have small-batch production methods, are women or queer owned, have a focus on sustainability, or utilize craft techniques. If you think you are a fit for our storefront, please e-mail us your current linesheet.
