Care And Cleaning For Your Flokati Rug



Like all fine home products, a Flokati area rug requires care and attention. Because of its construction and fine quality, a Flokati rug deserves more attention than your basic hand tufted and even hand knotted area rug. Since the size and weight (grams) of your flokati may vary, you may need the assistance of another person to complete the cleaning details, such as shaking your flokati rug. Please use caution for yourself and others when moving a flokati rug which can be quite heavy.


The basics of caring for your flokati should include: metal (dog) brush, cold water, fresh air or outdoors. We recommend you DO NOT VACUUM your flokati rug!


We recommend following these 3 easy steps in order to maintain a lively and full Flokati Rug for years to come!


For Smaller Size Flokati Rugs (Up To Approximately 24 Sq. Ft.):

         Step 1: Shake Your Flokati - Take your Flokati rug outdoors, and shake it to eliminate much of the
         dirt that collects inside the wool hairs of the Flokati rug.

         Step 2: Air Your Flokati - Make sure to let your Flokati rug breathe. Leave it outside for a few hours
         to eliminate any of the indoor odors. This will help the wool regain its original oxygen and enhance
         the wool fibers of the Flokati rug. Try to avoid exposure to direct sunlight.

         Step 3: Wash Your Flokati - To help revitalize and rejuvenate your Flokati rug's thickness, place your
         Flokati in a washing machine. Set your machine to a delicate cycle. Feel free to add a touch of mild
         soap generally used for woolens. You can also add a bit of liquid softener as desired. Once the cycle
         is complete, hang dry your rug until completely dry. DO NOT place your Flokati rug in a dryer. And
         remember to try and avoid direct sunlight when possible. Once dry, brush the Flokati rug with a
         metal (dog) brush, beginning at the center of the rug and working your way outward. This will help
         to "fluff" the Flokati rug and keep it looking and feeling full and plush!

         *Please note that you may notice wool hairs from your Flokati rug get caught in the brushing process. This is completely
             normal and not is not detrimental to your Flokati rug whatsoever.

For Larger Size Flokati Rugs (Generally Larger Than 24 Sq. Ft.):

         Step 1: Shake Your Flokati - Take your Flokati rug outdoors, and shake it to eliminate much of the
         dirt that collects inside the wool hairs of the Flokati rug. Larger sized Flokati rugs may require the
         assistance of another person. Please use caution when shaking your Flokati rug and do so in a safe
         environment. If your Flokati rug is too large to shake with the help of another person, you can hang          your Flokati from a line, and shake your Flokati rug from the corners or sides to help eliminate any          dirt or debris that may have collected.

         Step 2: Air Your Flokati - Make sure to let your Flokati rug breathe. Leave it outside for a few hours
         to eliminate any of the indoor odors. This will help the wool regain its original oxygen and enhance
         the wool fibers of the Flokati rug. Try to avoid exposure to direct sunlight.

         Step 3: Wash Your Flokati - To help revitalize and rejuvenate your Flokati rug's thickness, sprinkle
         the Flokati rug with cold water. This can best be achieved with a spray bottle. Then, brush the
         Flokati rug with a metal (dog) brush, beginning at the center of the rug, and working your way
         outward. After brushing, shake the Flokati rug at the corners. This will allow the water to resurface
         and form a bit of a mist. Allow the rug to dry before taking it back inside and walking on it.


         *Please note that you may notice wool hairs from your Flokati rug get caught in the brushing process. This is completely
             normal and not is not detrimental to your Flokati rug whatsoever.

Following these instructions will ensure that you will enjoy a thick, full, plush Flokati area rug for years to come!
