HJR Rugs LLC dba Woven Concepts offers a limited one-year repair or replacement warranty for their exclusive rug collections and custom-made rugs. This warrants the rug against manufacturing defects in workmanship or materials for a one-year period from the date of the original purchase. To register a claim under this warranty, please contact Woven Concepts. This is a limited warranty and contains specific exclusions and limitations.
There are outside elements that may affect your rug's appearance over time. These conditions are normal, are not considered manufacturing defects, and are not covered under this warranty. Repair or replacement warranty does not cover certain inherent characteristics including, but not limited to, those described below, which may affect the product's appearance and/or performance over time. These normal occurrences include, but are not limited to the following:
Due to the use of natural fibers and dyes, color and texture may vary slightly from one rug to another. Slight textural differences may also occur due to the hand-washing and/or hand-shearing aspects of the finishing process.
The color and texture of your rug may vary slightly from specification samples or from one rug to another, due to the use of natural fibers and dyes, as well as color dye lots. Color variation is a natural occurrence, inherent to the hand-dyed nature of yarns. Slight differences in temperature, dyeing time, and other factors can result in different shades and tonalities of the same color between different dye lots of otherwise identical production. A varying intensity or tonality of color between the approved sample and the ordered rug is not considered to be a defect.
Roll marks are caused by rolling the rug for shipment, but will normally disappear with routine vacuuming. Indentations marks caused by heavy furniture are a normal occurrence.
All cut pile materials are subject to shading and pile pressure. Matting and crushing can occur in all rugs, especially at pivot points and traffic paths.
Highlighting and shading is a normal occurrence, particularly in cut pile rugs, resulting from light reflecting at different angles on the surface.
Initial and subtle fuzzing is a normal occurrence. Fuzzing is the result of loose fibers created during the weaving process. It will subside with routine vacuuming.
Occasional sprouting or small pulls of fiber tufts is a normal occurrence. Simply surface trim the tuft with sharp shears and vacuum. Ridges or rows may develop in high-traffic areas.
Subtle color fading is a normal occurrence, particularly as a result of sunlight exposure. Rotate your rug(s) periodically (once every few years) for even ware.
This warranty does not cover not cover damage arising from any use that is different from the normal, intended use of the rug, including, but not limited to:
Damage, deterioration, stain, loss of color or appearance caused by abuse, or improper or inadequate maintenance. Damage caused by use of inappropriate maintenance methods or failures to clear stains. Routine vacuuming and incidental spot cleaning with use of mild and natural solutions are vital to maintaining the long-term durability and appearance of your rug.
Damage caused by one-time or repeated dragging of heavy or blunt objects across the rug.
Damage caused by chlorinated or any other solvent-based cleaning agents. Damage caused by exposure to substances or contaminants which degrade or destroy color in rug.
Damage or color change caused by grease, mud, asphalt, tar, paints, ink, rust, blood, cement, urine, feces, vomit, burns, pets, tears, cuts, pulls, shading or pile reversal fading. Damage caused by, sharp objects and the like.
Damage arising from the condition of the floor, floor covering or sub-floor (i.e. undue moisture).
Damage arising from use in environments maintained at abnormal temperature and humidity levels. Damage arising from outdoor use. Damage arising from water leak exposure.
Damage from casualty events, including but not limited to smoke, fire, storm, flood, or other natural disasters.
Damage arising from placement in any area regularly subjected to wheeled or rolling apparatuses.
Damage arising from non-use of a rug pad (good quality underlay). Proper (durable and non-mesh) rug pad use is required for all rugs, in any application, to protect the rug and enhance the performance of the rug. Woven Concepts will offer the purchase of a proper rug pad with every rug.
