Michigan is a hand woven jute carpet from traditional looms in India. The colour palette of the pile varies from deep rust natural through to an earthy terracotta, taking on various tones according to the density of the yarn and the way any single fibre has been spun. The wool is hand dyed using vegetable dyes and then blended with synthetic polyester using a process known as Punja Durry, which enhances durability by protecting against sunlight and abrasion whilst also creating a unique soft handle.
2. Use a vacuum cleaner to remove the dust and stains. Most vacuum cleaners have an inbuilt setting of low airflow to clean rugs to prevent excessive fibres being sucked in - pay attention to use only those settings.
3. Turn the rug and carpet upside down to clean both the sides with a vacuum cleaner thoroughly.
4. Clean the floor's edges covering with vacuum cleaners, as these are the areas where dust settles in most frequently.
5. Remove spill immediately. Blot with a clean, un-dyed cloth by pressing firmly around the spill to absorb as much as possible.
6. Expose the carpet to the sun for sometime if it gets wet.
7. Occasionally turn the carpet and shake it gently to remove the dust.
8. If your rug is placed in areas like doorways or galleries with high footfalls, you should dust them once or twice a week.
9. Take the rugs and carpets out once or twice every fortnight and shake them off rigorously to remove the accumulated dust.
