This rug is completely hand-knotted on traditional vertical looms in hand-spun wool, following the features of the Berber-Moroccan rugs of the beginning of ‘900. The ﬁnishing process is very elaborate: after the ﬁrst shave and the handwash, every single rug is handled in order to create a unique product: a skilled craftsman works on the surface with scissors, in order to give it the typical irregularities of the original rugs. On one side a selvage is created, matching with the design pattern and decorated with a woolen stitching. On the other side, fringes are woven one by one, following the style of the old Berber rugs. The b/w version is carried out through the use of non-dyed wools, while the other versions involve the use of vegetable dyes.
For the routine maintenance of the carpets, we suggest to vacuum them, in order to remove dust and other residues. It might happen that, during a first period, some fibres come off from the carpet. This is absolutely normal. The wool and/or silk carpets always have some excess fibres, which disappear gradually with the normal use. In order to get a uniform exposure to light and to trampling, we suggest to rotate the carpet regularly. We also recommend removing stains immediately. Proceed with caution in order not to damage the fibres. To remove stains, soak up first of all with blotting paper. Then immerse a cloth or a sponge in lukewarm water. Dampen the stain without rubbing and soak up, repeating these actions until you have completely removed the stain. For difficult stains, we recommend promptly contacting specialist dry-cleaner’s shops. For the washing, we recommend contacting specialist dry-cleaner’s shops.
