Please do follow our aftercare instructions to enhance the life of your furniture!

Each of our goods is custom handcrafted from solid wood.

Because wood is a living material, it is critical to take proper care of it.

Avoid putting your furnishings near radiators or in direct sunlight. Polish non-painted furniture parts using bee’s wax on a regular basis to keep the gloss and extend the life of the piece.

Avoid setting your furniture near a radiator or in bright sunlight to avoid movement in the wood and the degradation of your furniture. Natural wood is not water- or heat-resistant, and it does not like chemicals. We strongly advise you to use a coaster to protect your furniture. If a spill occurs, clean it up as soon as possible with a lint-free cloth.

Clean by gently vacuuming fabric with an upholstery brush to remove ordinary household dust and debris. To maintain the attractiveness and minimise premature wear and fading, the complete product must be cleaned on a regular basis.

Do not massage the stain, soak the fabric, or let it dry. Remember to give your cushions a good shake once a week or so to retain their form. To avoid colour fading, keep all upholstered pieces away from direct sunlight.

For routine cleaning, we recommend the use of a suction-type vacuum cleaner. Most light dirty marks can be cleaned with a damp cloth. Do not machine wash or dry clean your rug and clean any spills immediately. Lay the rug on a flat surface and blot any liquids with a dry absorbent cloth or a white paper towel. If a stain cannot be removed you should seek specialist cleaning advice and avoid harsh chemicals as they may damage the rug. Do not machine wash or dry clean your rug.

It is totally typical for all wool carpets to lose some fibres, even those made of 80 percent wool and 20 percent cotton; this is a natural property of wool as a material. Shedding has little effect on the life of a rug, and regular vacuuming is recommended to eliminate any excess fluff/fibers.

Some rugs are also prone to pilling, as the rug industry refers to it. This is where some of the pile’s strands/threads will appear to be longer than the rest. All you have to do now is use a pair of sharp scissors to clip any longer strands. It is critical that you do not attempt to rip these large threads out of the rug, as this will cause harm.

Due to the way rugs are packaged and stored you may notice that when you unroll your rug there are lines or crease marks running across the width of it. These lines/creases are not permanent and will gradually fade with normal use and regular vacuuming.

The carpets are wrapped around a cardboard tube in terms of packaging to ensure that they are maintained clean. A cover is placed on both ends of the tube to protect the material’s edges, and a plastic coating is placed on top of the material to protect it. To avoid damaging the rugs, two cardboard pieces are placed beneath the string. After that, the carpets are placed in a drawstring bag to keep them safe (this bag is reusable)

During the first few weeks after unrolling the rugs, they will not lay totally flat. This is not a flaw with the rug; it is just temporary till the rug adjusts to its new shape. The rug should flatten down gradually until it is completely flat.
