The Herki are a large Kurdish tribe, most of whom live in Iraqi Kurdistan.

Antique Herki rugs are hand-knotted on a kilim weft.

The wools used are thick and the knots moderately tight.

The women of this tribe are emancipated, which often explains the great freedom of design in their rugs.

The colors used are very characteristic of the weavings and rugs of this region: orange, pink, green, yellow, dark red...

Every day: you can vacuum, but not at maximum power. Avoid vacuum cleaners with rotating brushes.

Liquid spills: mop up as much liquid as possible and rub gently with a damp cloth. 

Grease stains: soak up as much grease as possible with paper towels or terre de Sommières.

Accidents involving animals: in this case, it's very important to act quickly, as animals release acids that will damage wool. Treat your kilim following the same advice as for spilled liquids. 

For a more thorough cleaning: it may be that the stains have not been completely treated, or that over the years, despite regular maintenance, dust has settled in and a grey veil has set in. In such cases, it's time to turn to a professional. 

That's why we offer a cleaning service, carried out by a company specialized in manual and wet carpet cleaning.
