Produced to the highest standards, our collections are premium quality, easy to maintain. They come in a wide choice of styles and weaving techniques.
Just like textiles worn as garments, textiles used for interiors need regular cleaning.
Handwoven products may vary slightly in their dimensions, colour shading, and weaving structure.
CARE OF NITI RUGS
NITI rugs are made with care, to last. To make sure your rug maintains its vitality and character over a long lifetime, it helps to take good care of it.
Please vacuum your rug regularly. We recommend using a vacuum cleaner set to medium power without brushes. If the rug has piles always vacuum your rug in the direction of the pile.
Moreover, it is not unusual for a rug to become slightly wavy. This may be due to minor differences in the warp tension, which cannot always be avoided, despite the exceptional skill and carefulness of the weavers. We recommend the use of a slip-resistant rug underlay, which may compensate for the corrugation mentioned above.
Hand made rugs can slightly fade initially. This is due to the cross-dye, which is not completely absorbed by the wool. Therefore, slight discoloration should not be considered as a quality deficiency.
We recommend professional dry cleaning of the rug when necessary. Do not wash rugs or soak in water. Do not use any chemicals.
In case the rug becomes soiled, it is best to take immediate action to reduce any possible damage. Wet a clean white towel with water, wring it out and place it on the stain immediately. Leave the towel there (without lifting it to check!) until it has absorbed as much as possible. Then replace it with another clean, damp towel, which should be left in place until the stain is gone or is no longer being absorbed. If necessary use a mixture of cold water and vinegar and gently clean the rug.
NITI cannot guarantee that this method will remove all stains, but we do know that rubbing to remove stains is not a good idea as it can damage the yarn. Remember not to walk on a wet rug for the same reason.
Flat-woven rugs should be turned around from time to time to equalize wear.
CARE OF NITI BLANKETS
Wool blankets are among the most durable and desirable of all bedding. They’re soft, warm and very difficult to stain or damage so washing should be done only a couple of times annually. Never use harsh chemicals on wool blankets, as this will cause the wool to degrade.
Before you take the step of washing a wool blanket, shake it out and hang it in a well-ventilated area. This step of shaking out and airing the blanket can go a long way in helping it to feel fresh again, and you might not have to resort to washing the blanket.
NITI blankets are handmade so they can be washed only by hand in the cold water. Use a liquid detergent without bleach or brighteners and always pre-dilute your detergent.
Careful drying is important, lay them flat to dry. Do not put the wool blankets in the dryer, as it can crush the fibers and shrink the blanket.
Wool blanket sheds liquid well initially, but after a few minutes, the liquid will begin to soak into the fabric. Since wool is extremely dense, once stains set in, they’re almost impossible to remove. Use water and mild detergent to clean stains as soon as possible. Don’t scrub the fabric.
CARE OF NITI SOCKS
Hand-wash in cool water (avoid warm water as heat may shrink wool).
Use mild soap, no bleach or fabric softener (bleach destroys wool fibers, and fabric softener coats those fibers—reducing their ability to naturally manage moisture and regulate body temperature).
Dry your wool socks by laying them flat (hanging wet wool may distort the shape).
NOTE: Protect all woolen products from pests and dampness while in storage. Store them in a heavy plastic bag and seal the bag everywhere. If pests are a concern add a lavender, a natural flying insect repellent and a good alternative to mothballs.
