WHERE TO USE: High- and low-traffic spaces; well-used family areas like hallways, bedrooms, and stairs.

HOW IT'S MADE: Cotton yarns make up the warp and weft of these hand-woven, basic-loom-weave rugs. Stripes and pattern run the length or width of the rug.

CARE:

•  Some shedding may occur with all hand-knotted rugs. Use a low setting when vacuuming to minimize shedding If shedding still occurs, professional cleaning can help remove loose fibers.

cotton chenille

FEATURES & BENEFITS: Soft and plush; low profile, reversible.

WHERE TO USE: Low- to medium-traffic areas, such as guest rooms, hallways, and home offices.

HOW IT'S MADE: A combination of cotton and cotton chenille gives these woven rugs their plush look and feel. The dye is hand pressed onto piles of yarn in a striped pattern, and the dyed yarn is then spun onto cones for weaving, where it makes up the warp of these basic-loom- weave rugs. The dyed portions of the yarn are staggered on the warp to create the pattern.

CARE:
•  Regular vacuuming and the occasional gentle shake will keep these rugs looking their best.
•  As woven rugs settle, a stray piece of yarn may pop up. This is perfectly normal. Do not cut the yarn; simply tuck and pull it back through the underside of the rug.
•  For bigger messes, we recommend professional cleaning only.
