Alkazar is a hand tufted rug.
The geometric pattern which decorates this rug is created with bouclé stitches executed with wool braids.
The stitches are tufted at the same level of the wool or silk background.
The background and the braids are dyed in the same colour; silk dying results in lighter tones, and this creates a tone on tone effect.
Only one colour can be chosen.
Composition of background: 100% semi-combed virgin wool or 100% Royal silk.
Composition of design: wool braids.
Daily cleaning: vacuum cleaner with roller brushes designed for use on tufted rugs.
Periodical cleaning: injection/extraction with professional equipment, steam cleaning or powder cleaning agents. Do not wash with water, do not use professional dry cleaning.
Stains: pat the area with a clean cloth to prevent the stain from penetrating the fibres; most stains can be removed with specific detergents.
