Vintage and Antique Textile Purchases

Every vintage and antique textile is unique. All of our rugs are one of a kind pieces. When you purchase a rug, you get the rug that you see; not a rug like it, not a version of it but the photographed rug itself. Handmade, vintage and antique textiles may have wear due to their use and age. Because of their nature they may have what some may see as imperfections or irregularities. These are unique character traits which make any one piece one of a kind. If you would like to see additional photos please contact us.

 

Measurements

Our rugs are measured exactly. The measurements are in the description section are in feet and inches. The measurements in the title is rounded up or down to the closest number for practical reasons. If you like measurements in different units let us know and we can help you.

 

Rug Care

You can use your vacuum to clean your rug. For small stains, spot clean instantly with a damp rag (preferably cotton) and a mild soap. Do not wash your rug yourself. For a thorough cleaning, take it to a professional carpet cleaner specializing in handmade carpet cleaning.

 

Storing your rug

If storing for an extended period of time, we strongly recommend you have it cleaned first. Then, roll your rug rather than folding it before storing. It is important to store your rug in a dry place, preferably not completely dark. Once taken out of storage, open your rug in the hot sun and leave it there for 4 - 5 hours.

 

Privacy

We respect your privacy and any information you share with us is not distributed to third parties.

 

Colors

Colors of rugs will look different on different screens. We photograph our rugs as accurately as we can. Our intention is to represent our rugs as we see them. There are no filters on images. Whether you are looking at a rug you would like to purchase on a laptop or desktop screen, a smartphone or tablet; you will realize colors looks slightly different. This is the nature of rug purchasing online. It is also important to note that colors of rugs look slightly different from room to room. The dominant color of the room, the color of the floors, furniture, the amount of sunlight and the angle of light a room gets will bring forth different characters of a handmade rug.

 

How will it look in my room?

Please write to us. We can send you additional photos, videos, we can also do a video call in order you to see the rug in real time and we will be happy to answer any of your questions about it.
