Professional cleaning is recommended. Never clean with chemicals!
Daily cleaning: Use the vacuum cleaner without brush when the carpet is new, as it will produce shed fluff for a period of time. Vacuum in the direction of the pile. It is a good idea to turn the rug around twice a year to avoid uneven wear and to place e.g. felt under the feet of heavy furniture standing on the rug. Note that the colors may fade if the carpet is exposed to strong sunlight for a longer period of time. Staining from the backside of the carpet may occur so it is recommended to use an underlay carpet on delicate surfaces.
The Hemp Collection by Tanja Kirst is handwoven with Italian hemp yarn. Each thread consists of 50 thin threads spun together and dyed in bio color. The collection is part of an ongoing project investigating how the familiar hemp plant can be transformed into durable and sustainable woven textiles. The fact that hemp requires little water, can be cultivated without fertilizer and improves soil structure and adds nutrients as it grows – makes the hemp plant important in the aim for a more sustainable textile production. Handwoven in a flat weave construction with color and weft effect.
