All the carpets are being photographed by professional photographers under neutral conditions so that you can see the carpets exactly as you would do in our store.
Every carpet of CarpetU2 has been estimated and certified by experienced valuers. Therefore, we always attach a certificate to each of our carpets that certifies: a) the name, b) the origin, c) the dimensions, d) the number of knots and e) the weaving materials of the carpet.
This certificate gives you further information about the origin and manufacturing of your carpet or about any possible flaw. Furthermore, it gives you advice on the cleaning, care and storage of your carpet.
You can search for a carpet using one of the three ways or a combination of them:
On the page of each carpet, below the button “Add to Cart” you can find the option “Add to my Favorites”. “My Favourites” is a page on our website where you can save the carpets you like or are interested in without any time limit. This way you will be able to find them quickly and easily on your next visit in our online shop by pressing the button “My Favourites” on our central page.
You can choose the carpet you like and then press the button “Add to Cart” (the carpet will remain reserved in your cart for the next 120'). In order to continue with the order press the button “Proceed to Payment”. To complete your order you must:
Once a carpet is sold the sign “SOLD” in red letters is displayed next to the carpet and you can not add it to your cart anymore.
The sign “RESERVED” means that a carpet has been ordered by a client, but the payment procedure has not been completed yet. Once the payment is fullfilled the sign “RESERVED” changes to “SOLD”.
The sign “RESERVED. Try again in a few hours” means that a client has added the carpet to his/her cart but has not proceeded to the order yet. If the client doesn`t complete his order within the next three hours, the carpet will be automatically released.

In case you want to exchange the carpet with another from our online collection the return of your carpet is free. However, if you cannot find a carpet to make the exchange, you will unfortunately be partly charged with the expenses of the return. In this case the amount of the shipping costs that have to be paid by you depend on the weight of your carpet. For returns from countries within the EU the costs are between 40 and 45 euro (depending on the weight of your carpet). For returns within Greece the return costs are approximately 10 euros.

Of course, if you like, you can also choose yourself the transport company for the return. The costs will be in this case carried by you.
In case of a return from a country outside the EU, you will be charged with any possible custom taxes for the return. Furthermore, for returns outside the EU we can not organise the return through the courrier company that we collaborate with, but our Customer Service can certainly help you with the organization of the return.

First turn the carpet on its back and tread on it so that the dust does not settle deep within the pile. A handmade carpet should not be beaten with a rod, because otherwise there is a risk of breaking the knots and the weft or even the warp where the knots are tied. Then turn it again on its front side and use the vacuum cleaner. Do not apply pressure or rub forcefully against the pile. Always wipe in the direction of the pile and not against it.
Move the handmade carpet to your balcony or the roof of your house and leave it there for about an hour so that sun shines on its back side. In this way moisture and dust that has been collected through time in the pile’s roots is removed. Clean your carpet with a vacuum cleaner as described previously.
Use a solution of wool clothing detergent or even better hair shampoo and lukewarm water. Mix the solution well in a basin until it foams. Using a well-wrung sponge dipped in this solution wipe the carpet little by little always in the direction of the pile. After this process the colours regain their natural shine.
Quality handmade carpets consist of natural fibers, so they should be able to breathe. Naphthalene is used in the storage space and not in the carpet itself. Carpets are rolled in the direction of the pile in a cotton or linen cloth (e.g. a bed sheet) and stored in a dry place.
