What are the irregularities in texture and dye tone I have noticed on my Fay + Belle overdyed rug?
Our vintage patchwork and overdyed rugs are fully unique. Each rug will take the dye differently with variation in color and pattern being part of its authentic charm and adventurous spirit.
Our custom rugs are made from natural fibers, including wool and silks, so slight color variation is possible as the dye may take differently to each fiber. An abrashing technique ensures that color variation is distributed evenly in a natural heathered look. Abrash is a distinctive quality found in high-end, finely hand-crafted, natural rugs.
Will my Fay + Belle rug change color or fade over time?
Natural fading is possible, including discoloration from the sun and slight dye changes. We recommend rotating the rug frequently to avoid sun spotting, and using a rug pad to protect floors from possible dye transfer.
What kind of pad should I purchase for my Fay + Belle rug?
To increase the rug’s longevity, protect your flooring, and secure the rug in place we recommend purchasing a rug pad. Thinner pads work best with vintage rugs, while thicker felt pads are recommended for our custom collection of rugs.
What is the best way to care for my Fay + Belle rug?
For large spills and intricate spot cleaning, we recommend using a professional cleaning company for all Fay + Belle rugs. For everyday cleaning and maintenance, delicate vacuuming is considered safe on all Fay + Belle items. For at-home spot treatment, our natural wool and linen fibers clean best with cool water and non-abrasive soap. For silk rugs, professional spot cleaning is always recommended.

What Materials are Vintage Rugs Made From?
Oushak Rugs: Made from 100% wool.
Overdyed Rugs: Made with a knot pile that is 100% wool. The warp and weft is 100% cotton (including fringe on some) and the edge stitching, whether by hand or by machine, is made from a 100% polyester thread.
Overdyed Patchwork Rugs: Our patchwork collection is created from rug remnants that are cut and sewn together. These rugs follow the material and make of our overdyed rugs, but are also then secured with a fabric backing for extra stability.
