Completely hand-knotted rug, carried out with one of the ﬁnest wools in the world, hand-dyed with the so-called “pot-dyeing” technique; it deals with an art that carries on a age-long tradition. Since the execution of the drawing is difficult, the weavers have to use “talim”, a sort of intoned code, where any given note coincides with a knot and prevents any possible interpretation mistake on the loom. The ﬁnishing process is very elaborate: after the ﬁrst shave and the handwash, every single rug is handled in order to create a unique product: a skilled craftsman works on the surface with scissors, wearing out on purpose some sections of the rug, according to an expert’s instructions. The side borders are carried out with the speciﬁc style of an age-old rug and selvedges are woven creating a “vintage” effect.
For the routine maintenance of the carpets, we suggest to vacuum them, in order to remove dust and other residues. It might happen that, during a first period, some fibres come off from the carpet. This is absolutely normal. The wool and/or silk carpets always have some excess fibres, which disappear gradually with the normal use. In order to get a uniform exposure to light and to trampling, we suggest to rotate the carpet regularly. We also recommend removing stains immediately. Proceed with caution in order not to damage the fibres. To remove stains, soak up first of all with blotting paper. Then immerse a cloth or a sponge in lukewarm water. Dampen the stain without rubbing and soak up, repeating these actions until you have completely removed the stain. For difficult stains, we recommend promptly contacting specialist dry-cleaner’s shops. For the washing, we recommend contacting specialist dry-cleaner’s shops.
