About the Material
While jute might remind you of the thick, coarse twine that you find at gardening stores, when weaved into a rug, jute is actually quite soft especially when blended with chenille. Made from dried plant fibres, jute rugs are often left in their original golden-tan colour giving them a natural beauty that is warm and inviting. Because jute is a natural material, it is quite absorbent. This means that it is typically not recommended for homes with young pets that are not yet potty trained. Odours from doggie accidents will be difficult to rid. Jute rugs are also not suggested for humid or damp environments such as a bathroom or a mud room. If exposed to moisture for long periods of time, the rug will become moldy, mildewed and fall apart. Asides from these above mentioned factors, jute rugs are relatively low maintenance. Regular vacuuming usually does the trick.
- Vacuum regularly with a brush attachment
- When vacuuming, move in several directions to remove the most debris
- Treat spills immediately by blotting with an absorbent white towel. Do not rub
- Do not steam clean
- Do not use cleaning agents as it may stain or discolour the rug
- Rotate periodically if continually exposed to sunlight to avoid fading
