Goatskin Rug Care

As with most natural animal hides they do shed hair. You can gently vacuum your hide but we recommend you shake outside regularly and leave in a cool place to allow the air to blow through the rug.

Do not wash!

Specialist Dry Clean Only!

Make sure you use a company that has previous experience with goatskin rugs. They should do a test area first to make sure it does not get damaged.

Small spills can be moped up quickly and a mild detergent used, do not allow the hide to get too wet. If the hide does get wet make sure you dry it naturally away from any heat source. Preferably dry outside, out of direct sunlight. Once the hide your goatskin has dried thoroughly these hides will benefit from a gentle brush through with a wire sheepskin brush or similar type pet brush.

If you take care of your Goatskin Rug it will give you many years of pleasure.
