Care Instructions

Indoor and Outdoor Moroccan Patio Tables, Garden Tables and Mosaic Tables.

Our furniture is hand crafted in Morocco.
Clean tops with washing-up detergents and clean water.

The mosaic tables tops are made with an iron rim (rust proofed) filled with reinforced concrete on which the mosaic pattern is then laid. The bases are made of tubular steel, which is than rust proofed
.


Moroccan Lanterns.

Moroccan Lanterns are made of metal applied with a lacked antique finish.

They are made for candles and have door to reach inside.
Electrics light can be easily inserted, as there is room for cables at the top of the lantern.

Naturally where electricity is used externally or in bathrooms a pofessional electrician should take care with the correct waterproof assemblage.


Moroccan Brass and Metalwork.

All wrought iron metalwork has a clear lacquer applied finish, which is a rust inhibitor, as it is clear in it takes  up the colour of the underlying steel.
Like many of our screen, mosaic tables bases and wrought iron funiture.... this produces a clean "antique finish". Flat black is also avaliable. Should the article be left  long-term outdoors, or in a very damp enviroment , we would recommend re-coating at least twice a year.

Care and cleaning information

We understand that you do't have the time to spend on time-consuming cleaning, which can also be expencive. With a minium amount of routine care and maintenance, your wool carpet will steadfastly retain its original texture, colour and overall appearance.

These simple tips will help you maintain its op condition:

  1. Expect new wool carpet to shed its loose fibers inin the beginning. This will gradually decrease in the first couple of months until it becomes unnoticeable.

  2. Regular vacuumuing is wool carpet's best friend as it will pick up these loose fibres as well as the soil and dirt that is held by the wool fibres at the carpets surfaces and keep it looking fresh and clean.

  3. Slow and careful vacuum strokes over he carpet is more effective than a quick run over. This will do more to groom the carpet and help it to maintain it's appearance.

  4. To clean up a liquid spill, first blot it up with a clean, dry absorbent cloth as quickly as possible. Then blot the area with a clean towel, dampened with hot water to pull the substance up from the surface of the carpet. Continue to blot with clean, dry towels until the area does not leave wet spots on the towel.

  5. Avoid using soap to clean spills as it is difficult to thoroughly get out of carpet and will attract dit and make dark spots on the carpet in the future.

  6. Avoid rubbing strokes with the cloth as you clean, as this would disrupt the appearance of the fibre.
