The handwoven aspect of this kilim is made from 100% wool yarn for the weft (horizontal) weave and 100% wool yarn for the warp (vertical) weave, which has been dyed using organic dyes.

Spot cleaning - please use a damp sponge with a mixture of warm water, vinegar and natural soap.
General cleaning - the easiest way is to hose it down with a natural soap as your detergent. You can use a small amount of vinegar in the final rinse to bring back the shine to dull colours. Do not soak your kilim and never wash it in the washing machine.
Persistent stains - due to the organic nature it is recommended to use a rug cleaning specialist
