Dazzling day-glow colors and kaleidoscopic patterns are the hallmark our Atlas collection. The ultra-plush pile is hand tufted using recycled cotton material repurposed from the garment industry. Bold contemporary style meets serious sustainability. Hand tufted multi-color rug in a repeating onion-shaped pattern Pile: 100% recycled cotton Backing: Cotton and natural latex Rug pad recommended . Minimal initial shedding is normal. Vacuum regularly. Do not use vacuum with a beater brush unless you can disable the brush or raise it higher than the thick pile. If you cannot disable the beater brush or raise it higher than the pile you should only use suction attachments. Professional cleaning is recommended—especially for difficult stains or heavily soiled rugs. If you choose to clean the rug yourself we recommend Host® which is a highly rated dry extraction carpet cleaning system which works very well with all rugs. Clean liquid spills immediately. Blot—do not rub—with a clean dry absorbent cloth. You may spot-clean using a solution of mild dish soap and water but test the solution in a small inconspicuous area of the rug to be sure there is no discoloration.
