Quality and Care

Please know that our Vintage Moroccan Rugs are carefully curated, one-of-a-kind treasures. They may show signs of wear and beautiful imperfections, which add to their story and charm. Our range of Moroccan homewares are made by hand and most have individual quirks which build the character of each unique piece. It’s why we love them so much!  

How to Clean your Moroccan Rug

Show your rug some love! Please be kind to your beautiful Moroccan rug and vacuum frequently. To freshen up, air outside in the sunshine for a few hours. Never use any harsh chemicals, instead stick to mild soapy water (we recommend natural shampoo) for spot cleaning.

When a deep clean is required, we recommend taking your rug to a professional carpet cleaning service. Ask them to spot test your Moroccan rug prior to any deep clean. 

All Moroccan Tribe rugs are washed before leaving Morocco. You may find some loose fibres due to the recent washing, which will only occur for a short period of time. Even though they are thoroughly cleaned some rugs will still retain some fine grains of desert sand as some are placed directly on the floor in more remote areas of the Atlas Mountains. This will reduce after a few household vacuums.

Wool is a resilient material and is pretty resistant to wear and dirt, which makes it perfect for rugs! These rugs are pretty resilient and hardy and have lived a lifetime before even reaching us! All this being said, our Moroccan Tribe rugs are carefully selected vintage pieces, some may be more delicate than others and to ensure the longevity and value of your piece, care should be taken when looking after it.

1) Vacuum frequently to free your rug from any dust or loose debris. You should vacuum across ways (across the width) instead of length ways (up and down the longest length), as this helps to work with the weave.

2) Shake outside every so often to free it from any dust. We suggest leaving your rug out for a few hours in sunshine if possible when doing this.

3) For thinner or older pieces, a rubber under matt will help to preserve the weave and aid non-slip. The underlay won't show and it doesn't damage the rug or the floor beneath. These can be purchased cheaply from IKEA, Kmart or online.

4) For any spills on your rug, use a damp clean cloth with tepid water, (make sure the cloth isn’t coloured as this could transfer to your rug). A clean tea towel is ideal. You could also use chemical free baby water wipes. To avoid staining, try to clean any spills as soon as they occur. 

5) In Morocco, they often rotate their rugs throughout the house a few times a year, to ensure even wear. Our homes and spaces tend to have a lot less foot traffic but it's worth considering doing this if your rug will be in a heavily used space, or used a lot more on one side or in one area in particular.

6) If you put your rug in storage for any length of time, please make sure it's very well sealed and consider using a form of moth deterrent. Moths and mites LOVE dark spaces and if there is a way to get in they will often find it. Wool is a natural product and should be allowed to breathe. If your item is in storage we recommend trying to air it out on occasion.



This is a delicate handmade item and should be treated accordingly.


This item is hand woven and dyed. No chemicals are used to fix the colour.
Do not spot clean. Liquid will affect the colour of the natural vegetable dyes and may cause the colour to run/transfer to other materials. We recommend using a fabric spray protector.
