Kilim rugs are made out of wool and typically also use a cotton canvas. Kilim rugs are a flat weave rug so the pile is shorter than most area rugs. Kilim Rugs are the best rugs for pets, for famalies with kids running around, or anyone who needs a rug in a high traffic area.
How do you wash Kilim Rugs?
Sense Kilim Rugs are flat-weave rugs, we actually recommend sweaping a Kilim Rug with a broom as opposed to vacumming the rug. We discourage using any type of cleaning mixture on the entire rug. For spot cleaning, we recommend using a simple household cleaning mixture for wool rugs. We have found that one of the best ways to clean Kilim Rugs is to shake it outside and hang it up in the sun. Just be sure that it is a dry day with low humidity- the sun and fresh air will naturally clean out odors.
