Nouvelle Nomad rugs and textiles are either authentic vintage finds, or crafted from vintage textiles. So signs of wear and age must be expected, and are what add to our treasures' beauty, character and value.
We do everything we can to accurately show the colours, condition and texture of our rugs in our photography - and take care to shoot in natural light and from different angles.
If however any of our workmanship (like zips or seams on our cushions) is found to be faulty - We offer repairs or returns depending on the fault.
We're always happy to answer all your questions prior to your purchase to help you choose the right piece for your space - but understand that sometimes this doesn't always work out as imagined.
If once you receive your treasure and it isn't quite right - that's OK.

WASH AND CARE
WASH AND REPAIR
All our rugs and textiles are hand washed in Marrakech before being shipped around the world. Any repairs required are hand done by skilled artisans and in the traditional methods to best suit the treasure and its origins.
Washing usually involves a spot clean for any visible marks, then a large broom and warm soapy water to brush out any other dirt or stains, before being hung out to dry on a roof top in the Marrakech sun. We vacuum and package all rugs by hand before shipping to the Melbourne showroom to check each item's repairs before being sent directly to you.
CARE FOR YOUR VINTAGE RUG
We recommend only ever using water and mild soapy water to spot clean your carpet. The natural dyes are colour fast, but chemical cleaners and vintage treasures are definitely not friends - so keep cleaning to the basics.
Rugs should be vacuumed regularly, and hung outside in the sunshine and fresh air to freshen them up and get rid of loose dirt.
If they're getting a bit grubby from usual wear or need a deeper clean - mobile carpet steam cleaning services are an inexpensive option (when done with no chemicals or detergents).
Otherwise if stains aren't budging - take to a professional carpet cleaning service in your area - there's plenty around. And many will pick up for you.
