Why choosing one of our rugs?QUALITY OF LIFE. Go barefoot, feel them up close against your skin and experience their softness. Pure wool adds warmth, tranquility and harmony to any project due to its superb acoustic and thermal insulation capabilities. In addition to its beauty, design, texture and color, a natural wool rug can offer so much more to any space. PURE WOOL. With guidance from expert technicians from the INTI (National Institute of Industrial Technology), we have achieved a strong and durable wool that remains soft and plush, which allows us to create elegant, long-lasting, sophisticated and easy-to-clean rugs. We refrain from using polypropylene plastic, so our rugs are ecofriendly and fire resistant. 100% HANDMADE. We weave the wool using a loom or a distaff, and natural pigments or lead-free tints with UV filters are used for dyeing. We can make any design in the size, colors and dimensions desired because our rugs are woven entirely by hand, without the use of machines. The production process takes just a few weeks, and the end result is a piece of exceptional quality. WE BELIEVE IN PEOPLE. Since 2005, we work with over 135 weavers from 12 different provinces, adhering to Fair Trade practices (guarantees fair pay). In 2013, we forged a partnership with the NGO Sumampa/Adobe Association, and since 2017 our rugs have the Argentine Good Design Hallmark granted by the Ministry of Production of Argentina.

With your purchase you will receive full instructions on how to place, clean and maintain your rug in mint condition to enjoy it for many years to come.
Underlay. Always use a non-slip pad under handmade rugs. The non-slip pad is a mesh mat that is laid on the floor and simply placed underneath the rug without the need to stick it or sew it.
Vacuum your rug on a regular basis. It is very important for the vacuuming to be gentle and with no friction. Use the largest attachment tool on the vacuum hose and make sure that it doesn’t have any kind of brush.
Discoloration. Direct exposure to sunlight (or to any other intense light such as halogen bulbs) and/or extended periods of time can cause the textile to become discolored.
Stain removal. For detailed information about stain removal, we suggest to visit our Placing & Care section.
Dry clean only. If cleaning is necessary (over a period of time or as a result of stains), we suggest that you solely rely on rug specialists and dry cleaners experienced with and specialized in rugs.
Our rugs are entirely handmade and there may be slight variations in color, pattern details and measurements from piece to piece. All our rugs go through strict quality control processes before delivery to customers.
