Tribal rugs are made by heart, without any drawing or cartoon to follow. This means the weaver has the freedom to invent the rug while weaving and be the artist of her own creation, instead of ‘simply’ executing a specific drawing or cartoon.
In line with the tradition, the Berber rugs use the Berber knot which is tied in a very specific way to give the rug a flexible handle. This was most compatible with their travelling lifestyle as this makes the rug easy to pack onto an animal and more lightweight than using a Turkish knot.
Looking after your rug
It is sensible to give your rug a good shake outside every couple of months and hoover it regularly. If your rug starts to look a little flat, a suitable tip is to vacuum it on the opposite direction of the pile, to help give it some life again.
Every four or five times you hoover your rug, make sure the reverse is also vacuumed because just as much dust an accumulate there, as on the front.
The quicker you deal with spills, the less chance there is of it staining. the effective way to treat a spill, for example red wine, is to apply water to begin with to dilute the stain, followed by mopping it with a kitchen towel straight away.
Start from the outside of the stain and work inwards to limit the affected area, but do not rub the stain as this can damage the yarn. Once a carpet gets wet, it is important to dry it out thoroughly afterwards, to prevent the wool from rotting.
Don’t use any bleach or chemical treatments as they might take the stain out, but leave a white stain instead. When in doubt, professional carpet cleaning will always remain the best choice. If you need advice on this, pleased get in touch.
