How do you make your rugs and how do you choose your craftspeople?
We manage the entire product design process, from initial ideas to marketing.
All our rugs are woven in Portugal.
Our craftspeople work in the best possible conditions, using traditional craftsmanship.
SAUDADE is an ethical company. We pay our craftspeople on a Fair-Trade basis that is respectful of good working practices, gender equality and the protection of heritage and the environment.
How do I clean my rug?
Our rugs are hand-woven and 100% cotton.
They can therefore be machine-washed, preferably on a cold setting.
Here are a few suggestions to keep your rugs as long as possible:
- Gently vacuum or brush
- Do not keep in direct sunlight or in the damp over long periods of time
- Rugs must be dried flat to preserve their original shape
If your rug has persistent stains or requires deep cleaning, we recommend dry cleaning.
How do I clean my cushions?
SAUDADE cushions are hand-woven and 100% cotton. You can wash them gently by hand in cold water.
All our cushion covers are removable so they can be washed more easily in the washing machine or by hand.
If your cushion has stains or requires deep cleaning, we recommend dry cleaning.
Do cushions include stuffing?
You can either purchase our cushion covers alone or with a cushion inside them.
Purchasing covers alone helps us minimise the environmental impact of our cushions. However, we are happy to send you the full set for your convenience. They are made of hypoallergenic polyester and do not contain any animal products.
