M-973 - Vintage Spanish Rug
5ft X 7ft 04in
One does not think of Spain and rugs, however weaving has been a part of Spanish culture for hundreds of years going back to when Spain was part of the Islamic world. This particular rug is from much later around the 1940's and is a lovely example with a wonderful open field with floral design enclosed by a border continuing the theme.
Vacuum your rug frequently and use a vacuum which uses suction and does not have bristles. If possible, set vacuum to low power setting and vacuum the rug up and down and do not use a back-and-forth motion.
If possible, rotate the rug every few years to allow foot traffic to be spread evenly and shade the rug from direct sunlight to avoid fading in areas.
A rug pad is recommended on all surfaces to prevent slipping and stop marking if on floors with grooves or lines. Professional cleaning is recommended every two or three years.
