Care and Washing Instructions for our washable range of rugs:

Our high-quality rugs are handmade with ethically sourced organic cotton and non-toxic dyes. They can be easily washed at home in a regular washing machine or by hand. The organic cotton yarn is dyed with certified dyes & chemicals and is treated at high temperature, so there won’t be any problem even after many washes. However, we recommend washing the rug separately from other products on a gentle wash cycle, since in the first washes it may lose some color resulting from the excess cotton that remains between the fibres after finishing the product.

Following are the machine capacities required for each size: 

  • 5 kg - Size “S” up to 70 x 120 cm / up to Ø 90 cm
  • 6 kg - Size “M” up to 120 x 160 cm/ up to Ø 120 cm
  • 7 kg - Size “M” up to 120 x 180 cm/ up to Ø 150 cm
  • 9-10 kg - Size “L” up to 150 x 200 cm / up to Ø 170 cm

For bigger sized rugs, in case your home washing machine doesn't have the necessary capacity, then they can be easily washed at the dry cleaners. You may also wash your rug by hand using any mild detergent and lukewarm water.



  • Shake out the dust from the rug before washing it.
  • Hand-wash or machine-wash the rug separately in cold or warm water at the maximum temperature of 31°C using the machine setting for delicate clothes. For our rugs, we recommend that you use a chlorine-free mild detergent (which is without any bleaching/whitening agents) to ensure the protection of the rug's material and color.
  • Most fabric softeners and conditioners contain certain chemicals that might damage the rugs, so it is not advisable to use them while washing. However, you can use non-toxic sulphate and chlorine free conditioners which coats the cotton fibres with a protective layer and prevents the damage caused by repeated washing.
  • High humidity can let the colors of the rug bleed thus damaging it. Do not leave the damp rugs or cushions in the washing machine, immediately remove them after the washing cycle ends and put it in the dryer (at a low-temperature setting) or spread it out to dry.
  • The rug shouldn’t be dried or placed in direct sunlight as it might damage the colors of the rug. Since our rugs are made with natural cotton and non-toxic dyes, we recommend that direct and prolonged exposure to sunlight should be avoided.
  • Our rugs can be tumble dried in a dryer provided that the lowest temperature setting is used. In fact, drying our rugs in a dryer will make them even more fluffy and soft. We also recommend that prior to using it you tumble your rug in a dryer for 15 minutes at a low temperature to get rid of fold creases formed during packing.
  • In case any fluff appears, do not worry. Fluff is nothing but the residue from the fibre which is produced while cutting the cotton or wool. Shedding is a natural and harmless process that happens when the product is new and during use. This is not a defect, but a natural characteristic of the yarn's natural fibre used. To get rid of the fluff, brush the rug in the direction of the plush for the first few days. You can use masking tape or lint roller to remove fluff & lint. 

Masking tape Roll some masking tape, sticky side out, around your hand, and alternately press and lift the tape on the rug to pick off the lint. Alternatively, cut strips of masking tape, press them on the product and then lift them off with the lint. 

Lint roller Move the roller back and forth over the rug until all the lint is removed.

  • You may also use a vacuum cleaner on the rug at a low/medium setting for the first couple of weeks to get rid of the fluff.
  • In case you find a loose thread then cut it with a pair of sharp scissors. Do not pull the thread to remove it.
  • Before storing, you can roll up the rug instead of folding it to avoid creases. Keep them in the place that is not damp or in direct contact with sunlight. Creases develop when rugs are folded and stored for a long period of time. To remove these creases, we recommend that you tumble the rug in a dryer for 15 minutes at a low-temperature setting. This would effectively help in removing the creases. You can also run your hands over the creases and shake them in an open area.
