Kuntta is a high-quality rug that is hand-knotted from unbleached jute. The dense and short pile is pre-washed to give the rug a soft finishing touch.
Jute is a fast growing plant that does not require extra watering, but needs only standing water. Jute fibers are extremely strong making jute a perfect material for rugs. We don't dye or bleach jute rugs, because using jute's own natural color saves a lot of water in the production process. Jute, like all new natural materials, have their own particular odour which gradually disappears after time and use.
ABOUT ANNO RUGS
All Anno rugs are woven in SA8000 or Sedex certified, family-owned companies in India. We have designed and developed natural material rugs in close collaboration with our producers since 2007. Anno rugs are mainly made from natural materials or carefully chosen recycled fibres. As all of the Anno rugs are made by hand there might be some slight variation in size, max. +/-5cm. Every Anno rug is unique.
Undyed and unbleached jute is an easy-to-care natural material, often needing only airing and light vacuuming. Small and fresh stains are easy to remove with a damp rag, but also a gentle hand wash with lukewarm water is allowed. When a jute rug gets wet it will get slightly stiffer but will return back to normal as it dries.
When drying the rug, avoid direct sunlight and let the rug dry in an airy place. For bigger sizes and heavier qualities we recommend professional rug cleaning. Please notice that all rugs that are made of natural materials will release some lint in the beginning. However, this will lessen after time and use. We recommend using an anti-slip rug underlay. Never use a rotating brush, such as a robot vacuum cleaner, when vacuuming the rug.
