The floral pattern on this rug comes from the V&A’s treasure trove of fabrics produced by the Calico Printers’ Association in the early 20th century. The C.P.A., formed in 1899, was an amalgamation of forty-six printworks and thirteen merchant businesses, totaling about 85 per cent of the calico printing industry in Britain. Many of the firms encouraged their designers to explore abstract patterns and the latest colours, resulting in many inventive and lively designs. The Moderne Graphite rug is machine woven in Agnella's hard wearing Tempo quality using un-dyed wool with a dense 8.5 mm pile. Cooling in the heat of summer and warming in winter. High quality wool provides excellent sound absorption, whilst its versatility makes it ideal for use throughout the home. The result is a heightened sense of wellbeing and comfort from the floor up. All edges are sealed and taped to create a neat finish.
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.
Use a suction only type vacuum cleaner or tool attachments, vacuums with rotating brushes are not recommended as they can damage the edges of the rug.
High Loops and Sprouting Tufts
Long threads, high tufts or high loops may appear above the pile surface.
These can be trimmed to the surrounding pile 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 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
