Jute, wool. Medium pile. Rug pad recommended to prevent slippage and protect your floor. Rotate periodically for even wear. Shedding is a normal process that occurs with natural fiber rugs; it should subside after 6-8 weeks with regular vacuuming. To avoid damage, vacuum with the beater bar off, using a high-pile setting. Blot spills immediately with a clean, absorbent white cloth. Professionally clean for best results. Imported.
