Safavieh Jolee Woven Rug, Gray, 5'x8'

Manufacturing Method: Hand Tufted / What's old is new again in Safavieh's Vintage Collection of rugs inspired by the trend to recycling old carpets and over-dyeing them in brilliant colors to camouflage stains and flaws._ Each rug is power loomed in Belgium of 100 percent organic viscose yarn in a low cut pile to recreate the threadbare appearance of worn vintage carpets. Yarns are deliberately dyed unevenly to add old-world character to the collection's classic Perntage carpets. Yarns are deliberately dyed unevenly to add old-world character to the collection's classic Persian and Turkish designs.Care: Professional Cleaning Recommended / Vacuuming: Routine vacuuming with a high quality vacuum cleaner is the most important thing you can do to maintain the beauty of your rug. Vacuum thoroughly and frequently with a canister vacuum (preferably one without beater bars). This prevents permanent damage by keeping soil particles from working their way deep into your rug. Rugs placed in high traffic areas of your home or office should be vacuumed more frequently. Never vacuum the fringes of your rug, especially a hand-knotted rug.Cleaning & Removing Stains: Quick action following a spill is essential in order to keep a permanent stain from setting into your rug. For liquid spills, use a clean, undyed cloth and press firmly around the spill to absorb as much as possible. Do not rub! This will cause the stain to set deeper into the rug, making it harder to remove and increasing the likelihood that it will reappear. For hard to remove stains, professional rug cleaning is recommended.Shedding: Wool rugs shed as a natural consequence of how they are made; this is especially true of new wool rugs. However, this shedding will gradually diminish and can be reduced by following these simply helpful hints: A high-quality rug pad under your carpet can reduce surface friction that can cause excessive shedding. Vacuum a new wool rug 1-2 times a week for the first few weeks using a low pressure vacuum cleaner without beater bars. Vacuum in the direction of the pile, not against it. Shedding is natural and to be expected of wool rugs, however excessive shedding in high-quality wool rugs will diminish within 4-6 months (or less). Do not pull loose ends; clip them with scissors to remove. Certain rugs have the large loop weave on them, and the loops can come undone. We suggest those loose loops be cut instead of being pulled. read more
