Everything You Need to Know

What should I know before purchasing a Mumma Jo's Rug?

We adore Axminster carpet and have spent much time preparing them for your whare and your whanau, here are a few important notes:

  • These rugs are 100% Axminster Wool, created with love, character and the environment all in mind.

The beauty and character of these stunning pieces comes from the decades of stories, times passed and footsteps danced upon them.

  • Due to the nature of thick wool, the edges can be slightly irregular in size but we believe it’s all an aspect of bespoke vintage ( That we adore! ). 

  • Some of our mats are over 30 years old, meaning they can be worn in areas and the colours can vary – we try our best to match the description with what you are receiving. 

  • These mats are for someone who wants an original piece of retro art that comes with history and character, not someone who wants a first hand new carpet.

  • Our kaupapa involves minimal excess and focusing on creating with materials that already exist – an environmental act of love. We hope you feel it. 

  • If your dream is to lay these on uncarpeted floors, we recommend rubber underlay underneath your rug to prevent slipping. If you would like this added to your rug purchase, we can provide this for an extra fee. 

  • We price our mats accordingly based on their size condition and do our best to remain fair and informative.

We love the story-beholden beauty of these unique floor pieces and hope that you adore them too. These are all timeless pieces of art.

Will a used vintage-carpet rug be clean ?

Each mat has had a deep shampoo and is water blasted three times ensuring they are as clean as possible for your home. It would be impossible to claim whether they came from a pet free, smoke free home – but we can guarantee that they have been deep-cleaned.
