Where are the rugs made?

All of our rugs are made lovingly by hand in Panipat Northern India, a weaving village that specialises in textiles and rugs. 

Are your rugs Fairtrade? 

We are a licensed Good Weave business - meaning each rug made comes with a numbered sticker which approves each rug as being made in fair conditions where the weavers are paid a fair wage, experience clean working conditions, and ensures strictly no child labour is used.

What does an underlay do?  

We strongly recommend an underlay for all of our rugs. Underlay stops the rug from slipping, and provides a slim layer of padding making the feel softer and more cushioned underfoot, as well as stopping the corners from flicking up.

Will my rug fade overtime in the sun? 

As the sunlight is so strong, like any natural product, your rug colour’s intensity will fade overtime. To reduce this, we suggest placing dark coloured rugs in areas where there is little to no direct sunlight, and rotating your rug often so it fades evenly, making it less noticeable. Having your rug Microsealed will help reduce fading as it provides a UV protectant, though it will not completely stop fading from happening. 

What is Microseal? 

Microseal is a non-toxic spray that provides natural fabric protection that seals the fibre, giving you time to clean any stains before they are absorbed into the fibre, prolonging the lifetime of your rug.  Microseal also offers a slight UV protection, helping to reduce fading in the sun. Originally developed by researchers in London, England to imitate the natural protection of sheep’s wool, its unique formula is a perfect balance of high grade ingredients paired with a trained and practiced manufacturing process.

I am unsure if my preferred rug style works in my space - can I try it in my space before I buy?

Yes. If you're Auckland based we encourage appro lending. Please reach out to our team so we can assist you. For out of Aucklanders, we recommend ordering samples online to see the colour and fibres in your space to help with your decision.

What is your most hard wearing rug?

The Woolen Basket Weave and Mini Loop rugs are our most hard wearing because of their tightly woven, flat pile, meaning things don’t catch on their weave. These rugs have been commercially tested, and made from pure New Zealand wool, which is easy to clean and one of the strongest fibres. 

Will the edges curl up?

No. All of our rugs are supported with a natural latex and cotton backing, as well as a binding tape which ensures your rug will not stretch and corners will not curl. 

How long will my rug last?

Because our rugs are all handmade, they are therefore unable to have an unconditional warranty. However, we will repair or replace any rug if it is defective during the first 12 months from the date of purchase, provided the rug was used for normal household purposes and maintained in accordance with the care instructions.
