Sahara Zelda Natural Rug
Sahara Zelda Natural Rug - Take your styling to the next level with our new Sahara - Zelda rug, perfectly suited to a variety of interior styles and constructed with a blend of sustainable yarns including wool, jute and cotton. These textural rugs are available in various designs in a neutral colour palette.
We recommend that an anti-slip pad is used underneath rugs to prevent slippage between the rug and the flooring surface underneath.
Please allow for slight variations in colours between dye-lots.
- HOW DO I KNOW WHICH SIZE TO ORDER?
Firstly work out where you want to place your rug.
If you want to position the rug under your dining table, it is recommended that the rug is large enough to extend another 60 - 70cm beyond the size of your table.
When choosing rugs for your living room remember that less is not more! Smaller rugs can make a room look smaller or more cluttered whereas larger rugs offer the illusion of a more spacious room.
For warm feet first thing in the morning when jumping out of bed, we recommend that your rug extends at least 50cm beyond the sides of the bed if your room can accommodate that. Whether you choose a large rug that the bed sits on top of or use a runner or two is a personal choice.
- WHERE CAN I PLACE MY RUG?
Almost every room can accommodate a good rug, however, care must be taken when choosing the material your rug is made of for certain rooms. Natural materials like wool and jute are not recommended for use in areas with high humidity, moisture, or where spills are likely such as bathrooms, kitchens, and dining areas. For these areas, a polypropylene or polyester rug will handle the environment better.
- HELP! I HAVE KIDS AND/OR PETS. SHOULD I GET A RUG?
Absolutely. Rugs help to offer warmth and softness to your space, and everyone loves kicking back on a good rug. To help your rug stand up to the challenges that kids and/or pets bring, we suggest choosing rugs made of polypropylene or polyester as these fabrics are low shed, offer resistance to stains, fading, and moisture, and are easy to clean. Making these rugs perfect for families of all makes and sizes.
- HOW SHOULD I CARE FOR MY RUG?
We recommend having your rugs professionally cleaned only when needed. Rugs experiencing heavy usage can take annual cleaning, whereas average usage can handle a professional clean every 2 or 3 years. We do recommend extra caution when cleaning handmade rugs and suggest that only professional cleaning should be considered.
Regular vacuuming is recommended to keep your rug in tip-top condition. The best vacuum choices are canister vacuums without beater bars. Brooms and manual sweepers are also gentle alternatives you can use. Refrain from vacuuming over the edges of your rug.
Remember to vacuum both sides of double-sided rugs.
For all hand-woven rugs please use extra care when vacuuming as the suction can pull the weave. Another option instead of vacuuming is to take the rug outside and shake it out.
We recommend that you rotate your rug by 180 degrees every 3-6 months to help even out wear and helps to allow the rug to fade evenly. This is especially important if it experiences a large amount of natural sunlight.
- SPILLS AND STAINS
Ensure you clean any spills immediately. Once a stain is set, it becomes much more difficult to clean. Blot the spill with a dry cotton cloth or clean paper towel. Work from the outer edges of the spill towards the centre to prevent spreading.
NEVER rub a spill, as this forces the spill deeper into the pile.
To remove any residual staining, dampen a cotton cloth or clean paper towel with clean, cold to lukewarm water only. Gently blot with the damp cloth and quickly absorb the moisture on the rug.
- WHY IS MY RUG SHEDDING?
Shedding happens when fibres in the rug become detached from the pile. It is normal with new rugs and should reduce within a couple of months. Wool rugs are known to be high shedders. Polypropylene or polyester rugs are low-shed.
- DO I NEED A RUG PAD?
It is recommended to place a rug pad underneath every rug. This helps to ensure the rug stays in place and flat. It also extends the life of the rug by preventing curling and wrinkling. It also offers protection to your floor from any possible colour transfer from the rug.
- HOW CAN I MAKE MY RUG LAY FLAT?
New rugs often suffer from not lying flat until the fibres have relaxed. To help speed up this process, try reverse or back-rolling your rug whilst applying pressure to the area where the rug is creased or folded. Leave it back-rolled for a few hours, or overnight before unfurling to allow the fibre tensions to relax. Repeat this process as required.
Another option is to lay the rug out in the sun for a few hours to warm up as this helps to loosen the back of the rug to help it lie flat.
- ARE THESE RUGS SAFE FOR BEDROOMS?
All of our rugs are safe for household use and comply with all Australian laws and regulations. Wool and jute rugs do shed, so please consider this if placing in a child's bedroom.
Ensure you air rugs out before placing them in bedrooms as new rugs can have a chemical smell when first unwrapped. This usually dissipates in a few days or weeks.
