Frequently Asked Questions

Sizing details

All sizes are located in the title of the listing and are exact measurements so you can ensure the rug will fit snugly in your wonderful home.

Care instructions

Antique rugs need periodic care to ensure they stay beautiful for generations. The wool of older vintage rugs tend to be rich in natural lanolin, which has amazing stain-resistant properties. Daily or weekly cleaning can be accomplished with a non-electric sweeper rather than a suction vacuum cleaner. Please avoid treatments such as moth-proofing, dry cleaning or steam cleaning. Instead, have your rug hand-washed or tumbled by a professional oriental carpet cleaner every five to six years.

Antique/vintage products

All antique and vintage products may have blemishes, which give the product its unique, worn quality. These are not considered defects.

That being said, The Ethical Home tries to source the most cared-for products and be transparent about obvious blemishes. We want to you to make an informed buying decision and ultimately love your product. If there is a visible blemish in the product outside of normal vintage wear, a picture of the defect will be placed at the end of the listing slideshow so there are no surprises when you receive your product. :)

Wholesale availability

The Ethical Home is not an Etsy-certified wholesale shop; however, the Ethical Home does offer a 15% discount on any purchases of 2 or more rugs. This offer will be applied to your shopping cart automatically! :)

Rug rentals

If you'd like to rent a rug for an event (engagement photos, wedding, etc.) please message The Ethical Home to work out a rental agreement! We'd love to work with you.

Please do not buy a rug, use it for the event, and return it. The Ethical Home reserves the right to deny the return if it has been used for this purpose.
