Sera’s rug are made of pure Ethiopian highland sheep wool. Thread, knotting and weaving are entirely handmade.
Woven rugs: weaving is made of wool (50%), warp is made of cotton (50%)
Knotted rugs: knotting is made of wool (80%), warp is made of cotton (20%)
The wool is not bleached or colored so the rug has natural lanolin the sheep and that is why it’s very easy to keep clean. When needed, all or our rugs can be vacuumed, cleaned in snow and tamped. Woven rugs can be washed with water, just make sure that the rug dries entirely. For knotted rugs we recommend professional cleaning/washing.
Artisans hand spin the natural fibers, pot dye the thread in small batches and weave the fabric on traditional handlooms. Hand spun thread makes the towel amazingly soft.
Towels are made of 100% cotton. Machine wash in cold water, hang dry.
