Rugs Care Guide


Is my rug ethically made?

Your Moroccan rug is made in partnership with artisan weavers living and working in the Atlas mountain region of Morocco. Our connection with these artisans has been established through the British Moroccan Society, a charity which helps foster commercial partnerships to promote development and cultural exchange between Morocco and the United Kingdom.


What is my rug made from?

Boho Sahara rugs are made using locally sourced 100% wool. Our artisan weavers spend around 2 months creating these exquisite, on-of-a-kind designs in the Beni Ourai, Kilim and Boucherouite styles. 


Is my rug eco-friendly?

Each Boho Sahara rug is made using 100% wool which is a natural, sustainable and biodegradable material. Each rug tells a part of the maker’s story and is designed to become part of your story; a beloved heirloom passed down through years to come, a treasured position that defies the culture of throw-away consumerism.


How should I care for my rug?

Natural wool contains many small fibres which will initially malt needing slightly more frequent vacuuming. This fibre loss is completely normal and will subside over time. Going forward a regular routine of vacuuming will keep your rug dust and debris-free preserving the life and look of the rug.


Can I clean my rug?

If liquid is spilled on your rug do not let it dry. Absorb the liquid as quickly as possible using kitchen towel or an absorbent, dye-free cloth. Do not rub or apply fabric cleaners or bleach. Consult a trusted rug cleaning service if a more thorough clean or stain removal is needed. 


How do I deter moths?

Moth breeding season in the UK is May - Oct so this is the time to be extra vigilant. Moths prefer dusty, food stained natural fibres and thrive in humid environments. Make sure you keep your home well ventilated to decrease humidity. Regularly vacuum the surface of your rug and consult a rug cleaning service if it becomes significantly soiled. You may want to lightly spray the rug with a shop-bought moth deterrent or make your own spray using water and a few drops of lavender essential oil.
