This vintage Moroccan kilim rug is a tribal rug. That means it is made by heart, without any drawing or cartoon to follow. 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.
Looking after your rug
It is sensible to give your rug a good shake outside every couple of months and hoover it regularly.
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.
This striped Moroccan kilim rug is flat-woven and could benefit from an underlay depending on the flooring underneath.
“Underlay makes SUCH a difference not only in keeping the rug in place but also in making it feel much nicer to walk on.”

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. use a hairdryer, underfloor heating or radiator to get the rug completely dry afterwards.
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.
