This vintage Moroccan rug is a one-of-kind heirloom piece, sourced ethically from female weaving cooperatives in Morocco. Designed to withstand the test of time, our rugs are handmade from high-quality natural materials that promise durability. Each rug is mended and laundered in Morocco before shipping, ensuring it arrives to you in its best pre-loved condition. The little imperfections of these storied handwoven pieces add character and warmth, appealing to the eco-conscious shopper that values artistry that transcends trends.

Show your rug some love with regular vacuuming. Use a low-powered setting and a brush attachment to gently remove dust and debris. Flip the rug occasionally to maintain an even wear pattern and to allow both sides to bask in the spotlight.

In case of spills, attend to them promptly with a clean, dry cloth. For more stubborn stains, opt for a mild detergent mixed with water and blot the affected area gently. Avoid harsh chemicals, as they may alter the color of your rug. 

A few times a year, give your rug the gift of fresh air, as the Berbers do! Simply hang your rug in the sun for a few hours, shaking out the dust and dirt before bringing it back into your home. This helps eliminate any odors and refreshes the fibers. 

While your Moroccan rug loves basking in natural light, be cautious about prolonged exposure to direct sunlight. Rotate the rug periodically to ensure even fading, preserving its vibrancy for years to come.

Consider a professional cleaning every few years to rejuvenate your rug. Ensure that the cleaning service is experienced with delicate textiles to maintain the integrity of your Moroccan masterpiece.
