Woollen Rug - Temple Ink


A woollen rug is an excellent option for Hamptons and French style homes because it carries a sense of refinement, it’s an ode to the beauty of natural materials, and it’s durable and can be a great fit for any lifestyle.

Wool rugs, particularly the ones we’re introducing, are also textured in a way that creates depth, and the opportunity to layer which is such a core design element of both quintessential Hamptons and French style.

Wool also lends itself to a feeling of chic warmth, and these rugs are designed for longevity making them ideal for any space in a home, including high-traffic areas. The craftsmanship is impeccable and includes hooked, woven and hand-knotted items. Many of the rugs feature elegant patterns and neutral colour palettes, but some options also have pops of colour such as blue and green.

All Dash & Albert rugs are individually handmade and hand woven items and as such they are subject to the following variations, which are not considered faults or defects.

Size: being a handmade product, the size can vary by +/-3% from the size ordered.

Colour: the products are made primarily from natural and undyed fibres. Every effort is made to ensure there is minimal colour variation however some variation can be expected.

Fading: placing rugs in direct and continuous sunlight will cause them to fade. Charcoal colour products will fade in natural light and/or sunlight.

Some colour may transfer on light coloured surfaces. Rotate your rug to minimize damage caused by natural light.

Design & Construction: minor variations may be evident, which is due to the fact that the product is a handmade item including line/weave thickness.

Shading: due to changes in pile and weave direction shading may occur and is a natural characteristic of carpets and rugs.

Shedding: this can occur in handmade rugs that are made from all natural fibres. Natural fibre rugs will initially shed loose fibres, this is a normal process. The removal of any loose fibres will be hastened by regular vacuuming using a good quality upright vacuum cleaner.

Pilling: this can occur due to traffic, moving of furniture, vacuuming or other mechanical agitation. This can be trimmed with scissors.

Pop ups: due to the type of weaving, there may be short fibres popping up while the rug settles. Do not pull the pop up. The pop up(s) can be trimmed or pushed through.

What routine care and maintenance is required for a Dash & Albert Jute Outdoor rug? 

Regular vacuuming and the occasional gentle shake should keep your rug in shipshape condition. When vacuuming, always use the standard floor head; never use the rotating brush. Dry spots can be removed by scraping carefully towards the middle of the spot. Do not rub wet spots; simply absorb with paper towels. Professional cleaning is recommended when needed. Due to the handmade quality of our rugs, they may vary slightly in size and/or colour.
