Terms & Conditions

At Nodi Rugs our focus is on hand made, individual items, being both a handmade and natural product some variation in colour and size will occur. The below variation can occur - These are not considered flaws but part of the nature of a hand crafted product;

• Each rug is hand dyed at the time of production and variance between samples and products will occur, although our artisans take every measure to ensure accurate colour matching, a slight variation may occur from dye lot to dye lot.   

• As our products are handmade it is impossible to achieve an exact size and can vary between +/- 5%, this is considered normal and acceptable. 

• Natural rugs will fade in the sun, please beware of this when you are placing your rug in a room. We suggest applying MicroSeal to decrease the fading and rotating your rug often for even colour fade.  

• Any shedding with all natural fibres is to be expected, the rug will most likely shed in the initial stages of its life, this is a characteristic of the fibre and will settle over time and is not a fault.

• Pilling can occur due to traffic, moving furniture, vacuuming or other mechanical agitation. This can be trimmed with scissors. 

• Pop ups: due to the type of weaving, there can be short fibres popping up while the rug settles. This can be trimmed or pushed through.
