Materials and maintenance
All rugs by NORDICMODERN are made of 100% wool from New Zealand.
Wool has a natural coating of fat which makes it dirt repellant.
Furthermore, as opposed to most other fibres, wool does not burn. Thus, wool does not need to be treated with fire retardants in order to be used even at places with special fire requirements.
As the rugs are handmade, size deviations of approx.. 3% may be accepted.
Use the vacuum cleaner frequently when the rug is new. It is normal that the rug produces shed fluff for a period of time. Vacuum in the direction of the plie and never with the brush down.
Immediately dab the area with a white cotton cloth to prevent the stain from penetrating the fibres. Carefully sprinkle a bit of water on the stain and dab again with a white cotton cloth. If the stain does not disappear, the rug should be cleaned by a professional, for instance: Vaskeriet.dk
In order to avoid staining from the floor it is recommended to use an underlay. Rugs in warp repp technique should always have an underlay. The use of an underlay also assures that the rug lies even and prolongs the lifetime of the rug.
It is a good idea to turn the rug around twice a year to avoid uneven wear and to place e.g. plastic or felt protection under the feet of heavy furniture standing on the rug.
Note that the colors may fade if the rug is exposed to strong sunlight for a longer period of time.
All rugs are GOODWEAVE INTERNATIONAL certified. This stands for sustainable and ethical production without the use of child labour.
