Our rugs are meant for everyday living. Each piece is reversible and can be maintained to last for years with a few simple steps.

To clean, absorb any spills or spots immediately with a clean, dry cloth. Use gentle soap and water to extract stains. Continue to absorb the stain and dampness with a cloth until removed. Timing is crucial when absorbing a stain. Get to it immediately, before it has a chance to dry and set. Vacuum regularly. Single, loose threads may be trimmed carefully with sharp scissors. 



Our braided textiles are crafted from the highest quality select, natural un-dyed wool and wool blend yarns from Canada. Rugs are sewn with a strong, clear, poly thread. Baskets are sewn with white or black cotton thread.



Due to the natural and dyed nature of our wools, very slight color variations may occur. Our samples do provide a very close representation of the color, however for those projects needing exact matches to the sample, we encourage you to request a CFA (cutting for approval). We will send you a cutting of the current batch run if you were to place your order at that time. 

We do our best to provide imagery on our site that accurately represents color, however cannot guarantee that your monitor will display this color accurately.



We provide our trade and retail partners with many sampling options for purchase, recoupable with any order over $1200. Additionally, our individual rug samples are available for purchase and are recoupable with any order over $500. To learn more about our sample program visit our Yarns & Samples page.



Quality is of the utmost importance to use. We individually inspect each and every item before it ships to our customers.

Our braided rugs and baskets are made using traditional methods of craftsmanship. The inherent nature of the wool textures combined with the hand-crafted process in production, can create slight variations that make these unique, and truly authentic products. 

Defects would include tearing of the braids or oil stains. Should you notice a defect, please get in touch with us upon receipt of your order at info@thayerdesignstudio.com
