When purchasing a new canvas rug – it should be seasoned before use. Hang rug up and thoroughly wet canvas all over and then allow it to dry completely. This allows the thread to swell and fill the sewing holes in – thus making the rug waterproof and ready for wet weather use. This process should be done at least two times and manufacturers recommend this to be done before wet weather use every year.
