Our products are unique and handmade by artisans from Santander using traditionnal methods.
We recommend following these tips to ensure the longevity of your rug:
+ Fique is a plant fiber that is inherently absorbent. It is also biodegradable, which means that your rug shouldn’t be placed anywhere that's damp or where spills are likely to occur since continuous exposure to the elements can cause excessive wear and mold growth.
+ Avoid constant direct exposure of your rug to sunlight as it may cause fading of the dyes used to color the natural fibers.
+ Loose fibers are common in hand made rugs. Do not pull them by hand. Simply clip them carefully with scissors.
+ Creases should disappear in a week or two. Try reverse rolling.
Designed in Los Angeles, the Seashore Doormats are handwoven by artisans in Colombia.
These handwoven dormats is made from fique, a fiber from a plant (similar to agave sisal) that is commonly grown in South America. They have an elastic quality, perfect thickness, and natural luxurious shine.
Fique is traditionally used in Colombia and Peru to make clothing, sandals, and rugs. Strong-textured and durable, fique is naturally eco-friendly. It is also a natural source of fuel, as well as a detoxifying agent, able to remove chlorine, salt, and dye pollution from water.
