Pulling the Rug From Under Your Feet
Gorgeous patterns and luxurious textures. Flokati, Kilim, shag and many other area rugs make great floor art, but Elle Décor posed the question: Why stop there? So they pulled the rug out from under your feet and put it elsewhere to get the attention it deserves. (All photos courtesy of elledecor.com.)

Rug Cleaning – With A Special Nod To Flokatis
Regardless of whether your art is displayed on the floor, wall or elsewhere, it needs to be as clean as possible.
RevitaRUGS has a lifelong commitment to the care of rugs and the customers who own them.
For over 20 years, we have been caring for fine and delicate rugs, relying on one key ingredient: pure, clean water. The beauty—and effectiveness—of our organic wash process also includes dye-free, perfume-free soaps; and quick, efficient drying. Your rug will be reinvigorated, and the air quality as well as the health of your entire home will be protected.
Advice for those washing their Flokati rug at home
You must avoid washing your Flokati rug in high water temperatures, or with chlorine bleach; also avoid dry cleaning. Not avoiding the above will destroy the protective fiber content of the wool.
When vacuuming the Flokati, do not run the vacuum over the rug because the strands will get caught in the rotating brush. Use the suction head of the vacuum — one without a rotating brush. The proper way to clean Flokati rugs is with annual cleanings by a professional.
