The Rae rug is one of our most popular rugs. The combination of unbleached cotton weft and black cotton warp gives the rug its distinctive look. This rug with big tassels as a nice detail is made from organic cotton.
Organic cotton, grown without any agricultural chemicals, such as fertilizers or pesticides, fits perfectly in crop rotation to increase soil fertility and crop yield. Crop rotation also retains more moisture in soil reducing the need of extra watering. Using the natural and unbleached shades of organic cotton saves a lot of water in the production process.
Please note that in undyed and unbleached cotton items there might be some slight variation in color. Organic cotton, 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.
An everyday care instruction for cotton rugs is airing and light vacuuming. Heavy treatments might damage the yarns and possible special details, such as tassels or braids. Although cotton rugs are very often washable, it is very important to read the care instructions before washing. It is also important to remember to wash the rug in ample water with low temperature and with mild detergent. No spot cleaning. Using detergents with bleach is not allowed. A cotton rug always shrinks during the first wash and might change its structure to some extent.
This is a common characteristic to cotton rugs. Shape and carefully stretch when wet. Please note that all rugs 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.
