Estival rekindles the naive expression of Mexican art and culture. Hand-painted watercolour blossoms and leaves frolic over the woven patina. This is achieved through transfer printing on a jacquard woven base. Christian Fischbacher has been creating luxurious fabrics, rugs and home accessories from it's head quarters in Sankt Gallen, Switzerland, for more than 200 years. Estival rugs are woven on jacquard looms using 100% polyester yarns. The weaving technique creates a 3 mm thick flat weave finish without a pile. All edges are hand finished with reinforced corners.
We recommend the use of Teebaud anti-slip underlay with your rug. This reduces the potential for trip hazards by minimising slippage. It will prevent rucking, makes vacuuming easier, feels better to walk on, provides heat insulation, improves sound dampening, and reduces any possibility of colour transfer from your rug to the floor surface beneath.
See our Teebaud Anti-slip Underlay for more details
Vacuum regularly, the heavier the traffic the more frequent you should vacuum.
Suction only vacuum cleaners or tool attachments should only be used, vacuums with rotating brushes are not recommended as they can damage the fibres and edges of the rug.
Sprouting or high threads
Long threads, may appear above the surface of the rug, these can be trimmed to the surrounding height with a sharp pair of scissors without any detriment to the appearance or wear ability of the rug in anyway whatsoever.
Stains and Spillage
It is important to deal with any spills quickly. If in doubt about how to treat a stain do not attempt to clean and let the stain dry. Use a professional cleaning company or visit James.eu for suitable cleaning products for all Louis de Poortere rugs. For fresh stains, moisten a clean cotton pad or white towel with cold water, wring it out and place on the stain. Leave in place until completely dry. Do not rub or dab the rug at this stage, as this may cause permanent damage to the surface. Never use soap. For persistent or dry stains, treat as per instructions on James.eu
