Maintenance of area rugs in wool, sisal and paper

Cleaning Sisal, paper and woollen carpets

Daily and regular cleaning with powerful vacuum cleaner is the best way to maintain your rugs.

Stains: If you have accidentally spilled coffee, red wine, blood, ketchup or any other problematic liquids on your rug, and it has set in in the fibres before you have managed to soak it up, we recommend the following:

  1. Avoid rubbing the stain - it will only make matters worse.
  2. Place a wet cloth on the stain, leave it there for about 15 min. until the stain is wet through. Do not use soap.
  3. Once the stain is damp (not wet), press gently with a clean, dry cloth. Press for 3-4 seconds at a time. It is important that you press and release rather than rub. Work the stain from the outside in because otherwise you risk damaging the felt.
  4. Repeat steps 2 and possibly 3 a few times.
  5. Finally, dry the damp area with a hair dryer to avoid water stains. If the stain cannot be removed using the above method, we recommend that you contact a cleaning company that works with the carbonation method in order to avoid the use of soap and chemicals.

If it is not possible to remove the stain with the above procedure, the following method can be used:

  1. Thoroughly mix 1 part white vinegar with 1 part cold water.
    2. Spray the vinegar/water mixture on the stain.
    3. Sprinkle baking soda on the spot and let it set.
    4. Dab the area dry with a clean cloth.
    5. Let it dry and vacuum

We do not recommend the use of stain removers, since the use of even mild soaps can allow the stain to set in.


Thorough cleaning:

Depending on the extent of soiling, thorough cleaning is necessary at certain times. 
With this it is also possible to remove dirt containing fat.
We recommand that you contact a professional carpet cleaning company.



Sisal and hemp are pure natural fibres and spilled liquids may cause the fibers to shrink and leave a blotch.
Complaints attributable thereto, are not submitted to any claims, since the cause is outside of the manufacturer's influence.
