All our rugs are handcrafted by expert artisans in Nepal using natural materials including Tibetan wool, hemp and bamboo silk. When we dye our rugs, we do so using specialist heavy-metal free, reactive Swiss dyes, that are better for both people and the planet.
How to clean and care for CHACCRA rugs:
If your rug is stained, you must act quickly to prevent permanent staining and you should always clean from the external border towards the centre of the rug to avoid propagating the stain. Press gently to avoid damaging the carpet pile and always dry the rug horizontally on a towel or a dryer.
Periodically, every four or five years, your rug should be professionally cleaned using water, to keep it looking refreshed and brand new.
Yak and Wool Blankets
Our blankets are made from a unique blend of natural fibres including Himalayan yak, cotton and wool. They are delicate, so should be treated with care and we always suggest seeking professional advice from trusted cleaners whenever you're in doubt.
How to clean and care for our blankets:
Our brass is natural and unoxidised which means it is prone to changes in colour. To clean our brassware use a specialist brass cleaner with a dry cloth and buff the surface until shiny. Lots of those who buy our brassware are often quite taken by the colour changes that naturally occur throughout the item's life and often opt to keep the item in its most natural state.
