VINTAGE RUG INFORMATION & CARE

All Beni Kesh vintage rugs are hand washed before leaving Morocco. There may be some loose fibres as a result of washing, however this will settle after a short period of time. As our rugs are carefully hand selected in person, to ensure we stock only the highest quality Artisanal pieces, some older vintage rugs may be a little more delicate than others and to ensure the longevity and value of your piece, we recommend taking care when looking after it.

Our Beni Kesh rugs are unique, one of a kind handwoven pieces directly from Morocco.
Vintage textiles may show signs of age and some wear. These may include repaired tears, un-repaired tears, small holes, fading, fraying and small stains, etc. These details are a part of each textiles unique history and adds to its unique character, incredible beauty and value.
The age, rarity, size and condition dictate price range.

CARING FOR YOUR RUG
It is very important to rotate your rug every 3 months to ensure an even wear process. Vacuuming & shaking out your rug regularly keeps professional maintenance low and slows down the ageing process. It is also a great idea to hang your rug out in the sun for a few hours, as long as it is in a safe space and the weather permits.
Rugs can shed a bit of fluff, this is normal and is not a sign that your rug is falling apart. It is best to vacuum/shake your rug often at first and after some time the shedding will lessen and eventually stop. Turbine vacuums or spinning vacuum heads should not be used on our rugs, as they can damage the rugs.
For any spills, immediately use a damp cloth with tepid water to help avoid any stains.
We recommend our rugs, cushions and blankets to be cleaned by a professional. As the natural dyes will easily run if not attended to correctly. 
Like most things, our pieces require regular maintenance in order to last as long as possible. This includes regular vacuuming, rotation and periodic professional cleaning. They are made from premium, natural materials (not synthetic).

CACTUS SILK CUSHION INFORMATION & CARE

All of our Beni Kesh Cactus Silk Cushions are one of a kind and woven on a vertical loom using traditional techniques. They are dyed using natural colours and then gently faded under the Moroccan sun. Our Cactus Silk Cushions are beautifully soft to touch and feature hand embroidery design on the front with a plain back. 

CARING FOR YOUR CACTUS SILK CUSHION
Dry clean only.
Do not spot clean.
This is a delicate handmade piece and should be treated accordingly.
We do recommend using a canvas protector spray as liquid will discolour these pieces due to their natural hand dying techniques. No chemicals are used to fix the colour, therefore any liquid will affect the natural colour and can cause the natural vegetable dyes to run and or transfer to other materials.
Please also take care when filling and un-filling your cushions.

As this is a handmade Artisanal item, slight variations may occur. These may include fading, colour variations, imperfect lines etc. These details are a part of each textiles unique history and adds to its special character, incredible beauty and value.

CARING FOR YOUR MOROCCAN WEDDING BLANKET
Each item is made meticulously by hand, therefore each piece does need a little tender love and care.
We recommend all of our Moroccan Wedding Blankets be cleaned by a professional, as the natural dyes will easily run if not attended to correctly.
If your piece has a spill of some sort immediately use paper towel on the spill to dry any moisture and please ensure you DO NOT rub.
In Morocco, they dry laying flat to stop any run off from dyes and prevent the beading from rusting by doing so. Never put your blanket away whilst damp, as this will cause rust on the beading and will prevent the natural fibres from staying fresh.
Moroccan’s use a mixture of Cotton, Linen and Wool when weaving these beautiful pieces so please keep this in mind when cleaning.

LEATHER POUFFE INFORMATION & CARE

All of our Moroccan Leather Pouffe’s are handmade with love from Marrakech, Morocco. They also only use the highest quality leather directly from the tanneries in Morocco.
As each pieces is hand dyed, cut and stitched, no two Leather Pouffe’s will be identical and in most cases you will see some imprints into the leather from the use of the artisans hand tools.
Please note, this is a natural leather product which may have small markings within the leather. These are not flaws, simply natural characteristics. These details are a part of each handmade Pouffe and adds to it’s beauty, character and value.

HOW TO FILL YOUR POUFFE
Moroccans use a combination of old clothes, rags, towels, sheets etc for a solid full look. Otherwise you can use bean bag filling, foam offcuts or plastic bags to reduce landfill.
Another option is using old pillows, however it all depends how you want the Leather Pouffe to feel.
