Hand-knotted rugs care and Information
CARE & CLEANING
At Blackpop we are extremely proud of our collaboration with Knots Rugs. The high-quality rug is durable and completely cleanable due to the high-quality materials used in producing the rugs. Knots Rugs
pride themselves in the fact that they only use natural fibres such as silk, wool and nettle making the rugs a good investment.

water. Use a new towel or non-abrasive sponge and work from the outside in to lift the stain put of the carpet.
4. Once your carpet is completely dry, vacuum or brush to restore the pile’s texture.
Let the mud dry and then gently hoover until it is all gone. Regular vacuuming and brushing will ensure that any dirt is regularly removed from your carpet.
Don’t pull just clip the thread with a pair of scissors.

effect called abrash. This gives your hand knotted rug its character and life!
Despite using the highest quality dyes, no rug is completely impervious to fading. This means that you should rotate
your rug every so often is ensure that fading occurs evenly. This will also evenly distribute the damage caused by
