Please know that our Vintage Moroccan Rugs are carefully curated, one-off treasures. They may show signs of wear and beautiful imperfections, which add to their story and charm. Our range of Moroccan homewares are made by hand, and most have individual quirks which build the character of each unique piece. It’s why we love them so much!
Our cactus silk cushion covers are naturally vegetable dyed and as such, getting them wet will cause discolouration. We recommend taking them to a dry cleaner should they require cleaning. Do not soak or machine wash as the dye will run and may transfer.
All textiles are professionally washed and dried in the Moroccan sun before heading to us here in Australia. We re-vacuum and package all rugs before shipping, but you may find a little residual desert sand or shedding of wool fibres caused by recent washing, which will resolve after a few household vacuums.
How to Clean Your Moroccan Rug
Show your rug some love! Please be kind to your beautiful vintage Moroccan rug and vacuum frequently. To freshen up, air outside in the sunshine for a few hours. Never use any harsh chemicals, instead stick to mild soapy water (we recommend natural shampoo) for spot cleaning.
When a deep clean is required, we recommend taking your rug to a professional carpet cleaning service. Ask them to spot test your Moroccan rug prior to any deep clean.
If you're up for a DIY clean, you can do so by laying your Moroccan rug outside on a flat clean surface. Fill a bucket with lukewarm soapy water (natural shampoo recommended), chuck your fave tunes on the stereo and get to work! Gently scrub your rug all over with a soft, clean household broom.
Very Important! Always spot test your rug prior to getting the whole thing wet -especially if you have one of our beautifully faded pieces. Occasionally the natural dyes still present inside the wool fibres will leach out more colour when wet. If you notice this occurring after a spot test, you will need to take your rug to a professional carpet cleaner instead, to avoid the dye running and changing the appearance of your beautiful Moroccan rug.
Once your rug is washed, rinse with a bucket of clean lukewarm water, brush out excess water, then lay flat in the sun to dry. Once your Moroccan rug is 90% dry, you can than hang it over a railing or clothes line to complete the drying process. Do not hang until mostly dry as natural dyes may run.
