Maintenance Keep your Kilim rug free of dirt and dust by vacuuming carefully it once a week. Do not use a vacuum cleaner with a soft or rotating brush. Only use the suction power of the vacuum cleaner (soft cution). Don’t run your vacuum cleaner over the fringe because it may snag the fibers and unravel or tear them off.
Stains When spilling, remove any solids in the spill by using a spoon to carefully scoop them up. Blot away as much of the liquid as possible. Use a clean sponge or piece of paper towel to carefully press against the stain and remove the excess moisture. Then pass clean water through the stained area. Use a clean sponge or piece of paper towel to blot the area with the spill once more.
The rugs are traditionally made: The women of a family work together to make a carpet -by there own design- for the family's household. They shave their own sheep; wash, comb and colour the wool with natural dyes on a soft and ecological way. This intensive process makes the wool and the carpet, of these precious family items, unique and of exceptional quality. This traditional way of processing the wool is increasingly being replaced by an industrial process, making the unique softness and the natural colour nuances a rarity. Therefore these handmade rugs are very desirable.
