How to clean your Weave floor rug

We want every Weave rug to last for many years looking as good as when you first bought it. This is why every one of our rugs has a cotton backing and braided edge on the underside to provide strength and stability and keep the rug square.

All our rugs are hand woven on looms in northern India. Weave rugs have been created for generations using skills handed down through artisan families. Handwoven Weave rugs are beautiful in their individuality and longevity. Weave rugs are not machine-made.

Viscose rugs and Bamboo Silk

If your rug contains any viscose or bamboo silk, follow this care instruction.

Do not spot clean or use liquid cleaners (including water) on viscose rugs. Viscose rugs needs to be dry cleaned using a professional rug cleaner. Initial spills should be blotted (be sure not to scrub, as this will damage the pile) immediately with a paper towel or colourless cloth. Then arrange a professional rug cleaner for a dry cleaning service as soon as possible.

Wool, Cotton and Jute Rugs

We recommend treating spots and spills immediately with warm water and paper towel. If the stain persists, contact a professional rug cleaner as soon as possible. Do not scrub rugs as it may cause permanent pile damage.
