- Colors and textures, as they appear on your computer monitor, may vary slightly from actual materials.
- Fading: Placing rugs in direct and continuous sunlight will affect color fastness. Rotate your rug to minimize damage caused by natural light.
- Design & Construction: Due to the nature of the products, minor variations in design and construction (density, thickness, etc.) may be evident.
- Shading: Due to changes in pile and weave direction shading may occur and is a natural characteristic of carpets and rugs.
- Shedding: Natural fiber rugs sometimes will initially shed loose fibers; this is a normal process.
- Pilling can occur due to traffic, moving of furniture, vacuuming or other mechanical agitation.
- Pop ups: Due to the type of some weaving, there may be short fibers popping up while the rug settles. This can be trimmed or pushed through.
- High suction vacuums can cause piling and may void manufacturer’s warranty. Dyson or similar vacuums are not recommended.
