RUG REPAIR

Rug Repair and Restoration

Sometimes rugs can sustain permanent damage either due to permanent discoloration, water damage, tears in the body, and regular wear and tear. These types of problems cannot be fixed solely by cleaning. In some cases the rug will need to be repaired or restored. This includes Re-Fringing, Leather Binding Support, Re-Weaving, and Double-Hand knotting. When our technicians visit your home, they will help you identify the correct course of action to address your particular need.
 

Re-Fringing

Oriental rugs over time have worn fringes. If this problem is ignored , serious damage to the end borders may occur. Our artisans can repair and re-fringe your older, but still beautiful rugs, giving them renewed life. Extra care is given to each rug to match, as closely as possible, the original fringe. We recommend having rugs cleaned when any repair is being done.

Re-Weaving

Re-Weaving is done in order to reconstruct torn and deteriorated areas of a rug. In this process, the damaged area of the rug is cut out entirely, new foundation is placed in its place, and the missing area is completely rewoven from scratch.

Hand- Woven Binding

When oriental rugs are finished being woven, a protective hand-woven is wrapped on the sides of the rug. Over time this woven can wear or separate from the sides. Our expert weaver can re-wrap the sides by hand or by machine, restoring this protection to the sides of your rug.

Double-Hand Knotting (Blocking)

Over time, the actual knotting of the rug may loosen and start to unravel from the fringed area. Double-Hand Knotting pushes back the loose knots into place, and blocks them from moving from their original spot.

Leather Binding Support

Leather Binding is the process of binding a leather strip under the free edges of the rug in order to provide additional support. This addtional support keeps the edges of the rug from curling inwards and re-enforces the sides to provide protection against wear and tear.

Moth Problems

If damage has already been done, repairs such as reweaving or latexing may be necessary. Often our artisans will be able to use Oriental rug fragments that will make the rug whole again.
