Is the colour in pictures online accurate?

What's the quality of the rugs?
We only sell top quality produced rugs, whether they are machine made or handmade.
Are your rugs easy to clean?
Most of our rugs are made from pure wool so they are relatively easy to clean.
Speed is of the essence with any spillage or accident involving liquids.
Immediately dab with plain paper kitchen towels, soaking up the liquid until dry.
For spillages involving food etc, scrape up the solids with a plastic spatula or knife and then soak up and damp residue with kitchen towel.
If any residue is left, use a solution of carpet shampoo and warm water with a teaspoonful of white vinegar. Use a cloth which has been soaked in this mixture and thoroughly wrung out. Carefully dab the cloth on the residue. Allow to dry and vacuum. Carefully brush the pile in its natural direction to avoid any matting.
Do not be tempted to use anything like salt/soap powder/white wine on red etc. Most of these so-called “quick fixes” are worse than useless and will only exacerbate the problem.
The rugs cannot be dry-cleaned.
Has child labour been used in making the rugs?
We try to avoid trading any items we believe may have been made by children who have been exploited, overworked or denied an education as a consequence of their efforts as weavers. Most of our rugs carry the RUGMARK and KALEEN logo. RUGMARK is a global non-profit organization aiming to combat child labour and offer educational opportunities for children in India, Nepal and Pakistan. The RUGMARK label is your best guarantee that no illegal child labour was used in the manufacture of your carpet or rug.
The KALEEN Hallmark of Commitment label for all handmade carpets, rugs, druggets, dhuries etc. indicates that the manufacturer abides by the Code of Conduct adopted by the Carpet Export Promotion Council of India for eradicating child labour.
