Armadillo & Co rugs are handcrafted to give you many beautiful years of use. Here are 3 simple care tips that will help preserve the beauty and prolong the life of your  handmade rug.

1. VACUUM
Please care for your handmade rug using low speed vacuuming. Higher suction, brush attachments and rotating brushes will all pull at the fibres and knit/mat them together. In the same way a knitted clothing item will mat with constant rubbing, so too will this rug but simple care will reduce the occurrence. Regular vacuuming on a gentle setting is all that is needed.

2. ROTATE
This is usually easier said than done especially if moving furniture is required but it will allow the natural fibres to wear evenly. Rotate rugs from end to end or if possible place them in different parts of the house to share the wear.

3. NATURAL PEST CONTROL⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Reduce bacteria build-up with sunlight and kill any moth eggs naturally. Every few months, turn your rug over and place it in the sun for an hour. Vacuum the back of your rug before repositioning.⠀⠀⠀⠀
