Regular vacuuming and cleaning is required. A thorough cleaning with a dry powder is recommended every 6 months, depending how much traffic it receives.
Sprinkle the dry powder onto the carpet, leave for a while and vacuum.
Coirtex has developed its own specially formulated powder that can help in the cleaning of ones carpets. It is meant to clean a dirty rug and not comment bleached marks. The powder is an eco- friendly mixture. Although we have a good track record, we do not claim that our powder will clean all stains.

The colour and quality of natural fibres are best maintained when placed in a totally covered environment. Direct and prolonged exposure to sunlight will cause the rug to fade and deteriorate in time.
NB: Coirtex has developed its own cleaning powders specifically for our natural fibres. All Natural fibres are not guaranteed to be stain proof or dog urine resistant, We cannot guarantee that our cleaning agent will clean all stains, however we do have a good track record from customers feedback.
Natural fibers are a beautiful and easy-to-live-with addition to any home. Caring for a Hemp/Jute Rug is no different than caring for other rugs, fine fabrics and furniture in your home. In our Care & Maintenance Guides, you will find tips and guidelines on how to care for your new rug. With proper care and maintenance, your Hemp/Jute rug will bring beauty and enjoyment to your home for many years.
Natural fiber rugs may experience sprouting which is when small fibers stick up from the rug some time after installation. Sprouting is common with rugs made from shorter fibers that are loosely woven.
Sprouting occurs with predominantly jute fibers. Jute fibers are short when compared to sisal fibers, and because our jute rugs are made from handspun jute yarn, the short fibers have a natural tendency to pop out. This is part of the natural character of these rugs, which are also hand-braided and hand-sewn.
Sprouting is common, and requires nothing more than clipping down the fibers that have popped up with shears. Over time, the need for clipping back these fibers will diminish. The process is similar to the initial shedding of a wool or synthetic fiber rug. Jute fibers are extremely strong yet have surprisingly silky and soft feel. They also are a highly sustainable choice as jute plants grow quickly and jute yarns are 100% biodegradable.
