Care & Maintenance

Thank you for your purchase of an Inkomo hand-stitched rug. Your rug has been created with the utmost care and attention, using only the best materials available. Please pay attention to the following care instructions to ensure that your rug remains in the best condition for many years to come.

Everyday care of hair-on cowhide

A good brush or vacuuming on a light suction-setting is generally all your rug needs to stay looking good.

Stain removal

Cowhide repels almost all spills and stains, and is completely fade-resistant. Any accidental spills can simply be wiped up with a damp cloth. Use a mild alcohol solution on stubborn stains such as grease or ink.

General maintenance to prolong the life of your beautiful rug

In addition to a regular brushing or light vacuuming, occasionally take your rug outside for a good beating or shaking to freshen it up. 

Lay a non-slip underlay under your rug.

Rotate your rug from time to time to ensure even wear.

Transporting your rug

Always roll the rug with it’s leather-side facing out. Roll as tightly as possible, the rug will always flatten out quickly once you unroll it.

Care of our other leather products

Upholstery leathers need no more than a gentle rub with a damp cloth when necessary.
