Completely hand-knotted rug, carried out with one of the ﬁnest wools in the world, hand-dyed with the so-called “pot-dyeing” technique; it deals with an art that carries on a age-long tradition. Since the execution of the drawing is difficult, the weavers have to use “talim”, a sort of intoned code, where any given note coincides with a knot and prevents any possible interpretation mistake on the loom. 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, wearing out on purpose some sections of the rug, according to an expert’s instructions. The side borders are carried out with the speciﬁc style of an age-old rug and selvedges are woven creating a “vintage” effect.
For the standard maintenance of rugs, vacuum regularly with rotating brushes to remove dust and other residues. To remove stains use a suitable professional non-powder detergent, without applying it directly on the stain, but rather in small quantities on a cloth. For stains on wool rugs use special pH-neutral products, taking care to remove any residue. The area concerned should then be dried as much as possible with a clean cloth. To wash it is advisable to consult a specialist dry cleaner.
