Oriental rugs are pieces of art! The understanding, skill, and craftsmanship necessary to repair and restore Oriental rugs is an art form as well.
With over 40 years of experience in repairing and restoring rugs, our rug specialists can reweave the following damages:
Area Rug Fringe Repair
Based on the construction of your rug, our rug specialist will examine your rug to determine the type of fringe repair that is necessary.
Whether your rug is hand-knotted or machine made, we will reweave a new fringe for you. We can also remove the current fringe and dye it to a specific color. This process can be time consuming, but it will be made to revitalize your rug and to last. We take pride in our craftsmanship and the quality of our work.
Area Rug Edge Serging Repair
Serging is the process by which the sides of your Oriental rugs are secured with wool, synthetic thread, or cotton in order to protect them and keep them from unraveling. Serging gives your rug a fine, finished appearance.
The rug edges must be solid enough before we can start the serging process. We will reinforce the edges prior to serging to add to the durability and longevity of your rug. Again, our rug specialist will repair your rug by hand to ensure quality of work.
Area Rug Edge Binding Repair
Over many years of traffic or abuse, the binding of your oriental rug may start to unravel. Our rug specialist will first match the wool color, then hand weave the binding back to its original form.
Area Rug Patching Repair
For aesthetic or monetary reasons, patching may be more a suitable option to repair holes. We recommend that patching to be done as soon as the holes are discovered in order to prevent more extensive damage to your rug.
Area Rug Backing Repair
Various rugs such as hooked rugs, machine rugs, or hand-tufted rugs have different types of backing. The backing of the rugs will extend the longevity of the rug’s life by securing the knots in place and/or protecting the back.
Oriental Rug Reweaving Repair
Depending on the damage and the value of your rug, we may recommend reweaving the damaged areas. Even though this process requires a lot of time and expert workmanship, it is the best option if you desire to bring your rug back to its original condition.
We begin by cleaning the damaged areas of the rug. Then, we sew on new threads into the hole in order to repair the foundation of the rug. We match the color and texture of the existing threads to the new threads of the rug. Our rug specialists are trained to use the same knots as the original weaver, a technique that will minimize the appearance of the repair.
