Sahrai Frequently Asked Questions
Should I be using an underlay for my rug?
We recommend using an underlay for thinner rugs as it prevents the rug from slipping.
How can I know the thickness of the rugs?
The thickness of a rug depends on the texture and the weaving technique used. For example, hand-tufted rugs are thicker than the hand-knotted rugs. If you have a specific rug in mind, do contact us to discuss its thickness.
How accurate are the photos in terms of quality and colour?
All our photos are taken professionally, and we endeavor to show as much detail as possible in terms of design details, colours and texture. However, the type of browser used and/or the age of the screen used can, in some cases, affect the colours displayed.
