Care

 

High Pile Wool Rugs and Pillows

  • Wool is durable and naturally water resistant!
  • Rotate regularly, especially in higher traffic areas
  • Spot clean with water to treat small stains. For larger more difficult stains, please consult with a professional cleaner experienced with wool
  • Vacuum regularly on the lowest, coolest setting - if the rug is wet or recently spot cleaned, always wait for the rug to dry completely before vacuuming
  • Avoid direct exposure to sunlight 

For Momostenango rugs, you can remove plant debris that becomes dislodged from threads with a pointed tweezer. Looser bits of debris that becomes dislodged can be gently vacuumed

Flat Weave Rugs and Pillows

  • Avoid exposure to sunlight
  • Spot clean with a neutral, wool safe soap as needed
  • Vacuum on lowest setting

Rattan

Rattan is meant to be kept indoors or covered, protected from the elements, when not in use

  • Wipe down regularly, especially after the beach
  • To avoid mildew, always make sure your rattan piece is dry before storing or covering. Rattan will grow mildew or mould if left wet or in a humid environment over time
  • If mildew appears, gently scrub the rattan with soft-bristled scrub bush with a 1:3 ratio solution of vinegar and warm water. Rinse with clean water and dry thoroughly
  • Hydrate rattan at least once a year, or whenever it is looking dry. We like to use a natural beeswax based oil
  • Bits of rattan may shed, splinter, or peel . Simply clip with nail clippers or thread scissors

 

Ata Grass 

  • Bits of grass may shed or splinter off over time
  • Simply trim with nail clippers or thread scissors

Apparel and Plant Dyed Cotton Accessories

  • Handwash with a neutral soap and line dry
  • If machine washing is a must, please wash on your machine's most delicate setting with a neutral soap
  • Wash apparel pieces inside out
  • Wash any plant-dyed pieces separately or with like colors to avoid possibility of staining due to dye migration
