Luoto rug is from the Saaristo collection designed by Anna Pirkola. This carpet is knotted with two heights. The pattern of the carpet is about 2,5 cm high and the base of the carpet is about 1 cm high.
Sera’s carpets are made of pure Ethiopian highland sheep wool. Thread, knotting, and weaving are entirely handmade. No chemicals were used.
Knotted rugs: knotting is done of wool (80%), the warp is made of cotton (20%).
The thread of the carpet is not chemically processed (dyed or bleached) and for this reason, the color of the carpet is natural. The carpet's size might vary by a couple of centimeters. The shades of the colors of the carpet vary slightly. Irregularities are not defects but are unique to handmade products.
Other sizes outside of standard sizes are available upon request, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The wool is not bleached or colored so the rug has its natural lanolin and that is why it is very easy to keep it clean. When needed, all the rugs can be vacuumed, cleaned in the snow, and tamped.
Knotted rugs are recommended to be professionally cleaned.
The colors of the carpets will not release, because all the colors are natural colors of wool.
