It's time to give your rug some love. When it needs a quick touch up, just grab a damp cloth (not dripping wet!) and some plain old H2O. No need for soap or fancy cleaners - they might harm your rug's color or fabric. When it's vacuuming time, make sure to use suction only - no brushes. If you've got a tough stain, it might be best to send it to a pro cleaner who knows how to handle fine rugs. And whatever you do, don't yank on any loose yarns! If they're bugging you, just snip them so they're even with the rest of the pile. Lastly, give your rug a spin every few months to keep the wear and fading even. Bonus tip: using a rug pad can help extend its lifespan
Handmade vintage rugs are made by skilled artisans using traditional techniques that have been passed down for generations. There are many different techniques used to create handmade rugs, including:
Knotting: This is the most common method of rug-making, and it involves knotting individual fibers or yarns onto a base fabric, typically using a hand-held tool called a "loom." The knots create the design and pattern of the rug.
Weaving: This method involves interlacing threads or yarns to create a flat textile. Handmade rugs can be woven on a loom using a variety of techniques, such as tapestry, soumak, and kilim.
Hooking: This method involves pulling loops of yarn or fabric through a base fabric using a latch hook tool. It is often used to create rugs with a shaggy or textured surface.
Knitting: This method involves creating a fabric by looping yarn through itself using knitting needles or a crochet hook. Handmade rugs can be created using this technique, although it is less common than the other methods.
Regardless of the technique used, handmade vintage rugs are created with a high level of skill and attention to detail, and they often take months or even years to complete.
