Care Instructions

A Guide to Caring for Your Silk Carpets:

In your possession lies a work of art, a mesmerizing silk carpet, handcrafted with utmost precision and adorned with intricate beauty. Cherished for its luxurious texture and exquisite design, your silk carpet deserves to be nurtured and protected for the ages. Allow us to unveil the secrets to preserving its radiant allure with utmost care and devotion.

1. Graceful Elegance, Gentle Handling: Embrace your silk carpet with tender hands. Avoid wearing shoes or heels upon its surface, as this may lead to undue strain on the delicate fibers. For heavier carpets, enlist the assistance of a companion when relocating them to safeguard against accidental damage.

2. The Shield of Cleanliness: To retain the carpet's luminous charm, maintain a clean and dust-free environment. Regularly vacuum the surface, employing a soft brush attachment or using the gentle setting to avoid pulling at the fine silk threads.

3. The Gentle Bathing Ritual: Over time, a gentle cleaning will be required to revitalize your silk carpet's luster. However, avoid immersion or excessive moisture, as silk is sensitive to water. Instead, entrust this delicate task to professional carpet cleaners experienced in handling silk rugs.

4. Basking in the Shadows: Shield your silk carpet from harsh sunlight, as prolonged exposure may fade its radiant colors. When possible, adorn your treasured piece in an area shielded from direct sunlight, preserving its brilliance for generations to appreciate.

5. Guardian Against Stains: Accidents may befall even the most cherished possessions. Should a stain mar your silk carpet's surface, act swiftly but with prudence. Gently blot the affected area with a clean, soft cloth, avoiding any rubbing or aggressive measures that could damage the fibers. Consult professional carpet cleaners for specialized treatment, ensuring the stain is delicately lifted without harm.

6. Elevated Adornments: Elevate your silk carpet with the placement of padding or underlays beneath it. This not only enhances comfort but also offers protection against wear, extending the life of your precious possession.

7. The Season of Rotation: To distribute wear evenly, consider rotating your silk carpet occasionally. This simple yet effective practice ensures that no single area bears the brunt of footfall, promoting its longevity.

8. Preserving with Love: When temporarily storing your silk carpet, roll it gently and wrap it in clean, breathable fabric. Avoid folding, as this may leave permanent creases that disrupt its resplendent design.
