Is my rug vulnerable to sun fading?
Almost every interior textile will lighten in color or "fade" over a period of time. The extent of damage depends on the item's location, exposure to light and elements, color, intensity, type of dyes and the dyeing method used. The sun (and other sources of light and fumes) may fade the colors of your specialty rug, especially if the rug is placed in an intensely bright location. To minimize this problem, prevent prolonged exposure to intense sunlight by keeping the windows covered or treating them with a protective coating that filters out the ultra-violet (UV) rays of sunlight. You may also wish to simply rotate your rug every three months.
