A Luxurious, Silky, Soft Pile for a Decadent Look.
Elgin rugs are hand woven in India using blend of 80% fine viscose and 20% cotton yarn with a dense pile. Gorgeous colours with contrasting tassels each rug has a luxurious feel. The natural lustre of the pile is reminiscent of pure silk creating a decadent look for a more elegant feel.
Viscose is a more delicate fibre than wool and is susceptible to staining.
Water/ liquid spills change the texture of the viscose, causing the pile to reflect light differently to give the appearance of a stain. It is important to deal with any spills quickly, blot up any excess liquid using paper towels, do not rub or brush the pile. For all stains, we recommend you consult a professional carpet cleaning company straight away. They should recommend that the entire carpet, and not just the spill area is cleaned using a dry extraction rather than a wet cleaning method.
