We recommend that you immediately remove the rug from the washing machine when the programme ends and spread it out in a dry place to dry or put it directly into a dryer at a low temperature setting. Do not under any circumstances leave a damp rug in a washing machine after washing, because the humidity may cause the colours to run, damaging the rug’s original dyes. Don’t forget that our dyes are natural, non-toxic and made using artisanal methods. Your rug will not lose colour after washing, because all the dyes are fixed during the process of manufacture. However, this is an artisanal and delicate product that, like any natural cotton textile, requires special care to keep it looking like new. For more details, please refer to our washing and maintenance instructions.
