Carpet | Follow Me

Handmade in India

  • Description

    Dimensions: - 120 × 180 cm

    Ingredients / Materials: - Recycled silk

    Another unique piece with a story, travelling all the way from India. The handloom weaving cluster in Jaipur, India, takes the short fibre left over from combing wool or spinning silk – known as noil silk – and hand spins and weaves it into fabrics. That fabric, recycled silk, is used to create UNC’s Follow Me Carpet. A handwoven carpet with colourful waves, looking for a new home to embrace.
  • About the Designer

    Since the age of 19, Anne Marie Hermans has been travelling the world, finding beauty and treasures in every corner of the planet. Ever inspired by inventive minds and the incredible products that can come to life from that, her travels always lead her to find new products, hidden gems and creative people, who inspire her for new collections to come. Curating ancient techniques and art in harmony with nature is one of the most important goals in her life. This is exactly why she started her own Urban Nature Culture brand.

    One of the reasons Urban Nature Culture Amsterdam was brought to life is because Anne believes that taking care of the future of our world, nature, and its inhabitants can only be achieved by looking at ourselves. The change lies within ourselves. UNC is a home and lifestyle brand that continuously challenges her – wondering about ways to add better value to our planet and its inhabitants, us people.

    Step by step, they find more ways to produce products sustainably. Not just by paying fair wages to the talented craftsmen or honest dealers and companies who provide great products for our homes, but also by using new and planet-friendly sources, or secondary instead of new, raw materials. They believe that it is their obligation to invest in the future and be transparent about creating their goods. Please take a look at how some of their production processes work here.

  • Care Instruction

    Dry Clean Only.

    Want to rejuvenate your rug and give it a new lease of life? Sometimes a light clean doesn’t do the job, so a deep clean is in order. Where do you start? Don’t worry, take a look below for a guide on how to help you get your rug flourishing again no matter what room it’s in.

    • Shake or vacuum your rug to remove as much dust and debris as possible.
    • Find a suitable carpet shampoo for your style of rug and follow the manufacturer’s instructions. We always recommend testing a small patch of the rug first. Mix up the solution and apply to an inconspicuous area. Allow it to work and check for any discolouration. If you’re happy, apply to the whole rug.
    • It’s often easier to clean a rug outside, but if the weather isn’t on your side, you can always do this in the bathtub to avoid mess and any possible dye transfer to your carpets/flooring.
    • Allow it to fully dry outside or in a well-ventilated room.
    •  If the material allows, add a fabric spray to keep the rug fragrant.

    How to remove stains from your rug

    Unfortunately, our hectic households are full of children, pets, guests and more alongside our everyday lives. Inevitably there are going to be spillages and accidents. Carpets and rugs usually take the brunt of it, but there’s no reason why everyday spills and stains should cause lasting damage. In this section, we look at some of the most common accidents and how you can remove stains from your rugs.

    The trick with red wine on the carpet, or any liquid for that matter, is to deal with it quickly. Using a clean white cloth, blot the wine up straight away. Once done, mix 3 parts baking soda to 1 part water and blot the stain with the solution, do not rub, alternate with a dry cloth to avoid getting the rug too wet. Once it’s dry, vacuum it up.

    How to remove nail polish from a rug

    Nail polish or paint can be harder to remove from a carpet or rug, but there are still a couple of methods. The first and most obvious is to use non-acetone nail varnish remover. Blot the stain with a clean, wet cloth to keep it damp. Then, using a new cloth, blot nail varnish remover on it and lift as much as you can from the rug.

    Window cleaner can also be used in place of nail polish remover, as can hair spray and a clean sponge. Always test on a small area first to minimise discolouration.

    If the nail polish has dried, then you need a different approach. Mix 1 part non-acetone nail varnish remover with 1 part rubbing alcohol and use an old toothbrush to gently rub the mixture into the fibres, being careful not to damage the pile. Vacuum up the loosened nail polish.

If the stain is really stubborn, use a stain remover best suited to the pile type.

    Removing smells from a rug

    Our rugs can easily trap smells over the years. Whether it’s from pets, spillages, smoking, or just general usage, keeping your rugs smelling fresh is just as important as looking fresh. Fortunately, there are several different methods for removing smells from your rug:

    Baking Powder

    One of the most common and effective ways to keep your carpets smelling fresh is by using baking powder. Making sure it’s dry, sprinkle the baking soda all over the rug. It pays to be generous with the amount you use, and if it’s a shaggy rug, use your hands to work it into the pile. Now, just wait a couple of hours (or ideally overnight) and simply vacuum it back up. If it’s a really persistent smell, repeat the entire process.

    Steam Cleaning

    If your rug can be steamed, this can be a very effective way of removing smells. Simply follow the instructions on your machine, and if the smell is really pungent, then add some white vinegar or a cleaning product into the mix as well. Allow the rug to dry fully before putting it back.

    Pet Smells

    Pets can leave unfortunate and pungent smells on your rug. To begin, follow the same steps we outlined earlier. While the rug is still wet, add baking soda to it and allow it to sit overnight. Before removing the soda, spray white vinegar onto the rug. It will bubble and foam as it reacts, but this is normal. Allow the mix to work for 5-10 minutes, and then, using a clean cloth, blot it dry. Make sure to keep your furry companion out of the way while you do this!
