If you have a soft spot for rustic, retro and timeless textiles, you'll love Facet. Just run your fingers over its woolly, soft and fuzzy surface and get swept away to a simpler time. And simpler it is: Facet is about as low-maintenance as it gets. It even naturally repels dirt.
But Facet offers more than just a good feeling. Woven from recycled yarns, this flat weave felt is durable and dynamic, too. Want the specifics? It is made of 75% wool and 25% polyamide. It’s also DMF-free. Oh, yeah. And you can add recyclable and reusable to the list. Now, that’s future-focused felt.
Use and care
Keep Facet away from direct sunlight, heaters, wet or rough surfaces. Just like any wool textile, it will mat and shrink if it is exposed to heat or rubbing.
Once in a while, run a soft brush over the fabric to loosen dirt. Then vacuum gently. Be careful with brush accessories for your vacuum cleaner: hard brushes may cause damage.
Gently remove dust particles with a soft, dry, cotton cloth.
If you spill water-soluble liquids (coffee, tea, milk etc.) on the fabric, dab them immediately with a soft, clean, cotton, white cloth or absorbent paper. Next, rub the stain gently from the outside towards the centre, using a soft, clean, white, cotton cloth dampened in lukewarm water. Leave the surface to dry.
If you spill greasy substances (oil, chocolate, ketchup etc.), dab them carefully with absorbent paper. Then, use a pH-neutral detergent (like dishwashing detergent), just five drops diluted in one litre of warm water. The best way to clean is with a soft, clean, white, cotton cloth, dampened in the mixture, using dabbing or absorption method, not rubbing vigorously. Friction is not your friend.
For a periodical, thorough clean, you could consider an at-home dry cleaning product. Use a dry cleaning ecological solvent (that can be used by hand) together with a soft, white, cotton cloth, following the solvent cleaning instructions.
Test all cleaners first for the effect on a small piece of fabric that is not immediately visible.
