Safavieh Dhurries Collection DHU626 Rug, Navy/Ivory, 8'x10'
Safavieh Dhurries Collection DHU626 Rug, Navy/Ivory, 8'x10'by Safavieh(14)
$388$440
The Dhurries Collection features contemporary flat weave rugs made using 100% pure wool and faithful obedience to the traditions of local artisans of India. The original texture and soft colors of antique Dhurries, so prized by collectors, is skillfully recreated in these sublime carpets. Classic geometric motifs, with their organic nuances in pattern and tone, are equally at home in casual, mod, and traditional settings. Construction: Hand Woven, Flatweave Materials: 50% Banana Silk, 30% Wool, 20% Cotton General Care: Use rug protectors under the legs of heavy furniture to avoid flattening of your rug pile. Rotating your rug every few months will help relieve areas from excessive wear. Packing and shipping may cause temporary creases in area rugs. To remove them back-roll/reverse roll your rug and allow time for the creases to relax. Direct sunlight will cause the colors in your area rug to fade over time. Long term exposure to humid weather can be harmful to area rugs. The cotton warp and weft foundation of an area rug can breakdown when exposed to excessive humidity. Avoid placing plants directly on top of area rugs and immediately blot dry any water spillage. Brushing is the best way to remove stubborn pet hairs that the vacuum misses. For short pile area rugs, use a carpet brush or carpet sweeper. For longer pile a carpet rake works well. Sweeping works best for outdoor rugs. The sturdy pile of an indoor-outdoor rug does not trap dirt as readily as other area rugs. For rugs that are relatively easy to handle, bring them outdoors and shake vigorously to remove excess debris. Hang over an outdoor railing and beat with the back of a broom or rug beater, varying in vigor based on the construction and condition of the rug. Area rugs placed in high traffic areas will wear faster than those in lesser tread-upon locations. Rotating a rug every few months will distribute any wear and fading evenly. Vacuuming: Routine vacuuming with a high quality vacuum cleaner is the most important thing you can do to maintain the beauty of your rug. Vacuum thoroughly and frequently with a canister vacuum (preferably one without beater bars). This prevents permanent damage by keeping soil particles from working their way deep into your rug. Rugs placed in high traffic areas of your home or office should be vacuumed more frequently. Never vacuum the fringes of your rug, especially a hand-knotted rug. Cleaning & Removing Stains: Quick action following a spill is essential in order to keep a permanent stain from setting into your rug. For liquid spills, use a clean, undyed cloth and press firmly around the spill to absorb as much as possible. Do not rub! This will cause the stain to set deeper into the rug, making it harder to remove and increasing the likelihood that it will reappear. Make a solution of water, white vinegar, and mild detergent. Apply the foam that rises to the top of the solution on the stained area with a clean cloth. Finish using a damp, clean cloth to absorb any residue.. For lighter stains or spills on synthetic yarns, sponge clean the area with cold water and mild detergent. For hard to remove stains, professional rug cleaning is recommended. Care for Wool: Wool rugs may shed as a natural consequence of how they are made. However, this shedding will gradually diminish with proper vacuuming. Use a high-quality rug pad under your carpet to reduce surface friction. Vacuum 1-2 times a week for the first few weeks using a low pressure vacuum cleaner without beater bars. Do not pull "stray" loops. Always cut them back with scissors.Read More
