Your Oriental rugs require the finest care. We examine your Oriental rug to determine the type of fringe repair it requires based on rug construction. If your rug’s edges are hand-knotted, they need to be re-wrapped by hand, paying close attention to the rug’s specific colors and structure. This is a very elaborate and meticulous process that is performed by hand. If your Oriental rug is machine-made, power fringing is the preferred method of repair and a quicker process. If your goal is to completely change the fringe, we have a wide variety of colors and fabrics depending on your preference. Some customers prefer to remove the fringe altogether. Whatever your choice, we are here for you!
This process of serging gives your rug a fine finished appearance. The sides of your Oriental rugs must be secured with wool, cotton, or synthetic thread to protect them and keep them from unraveling. We offer both hand serging and machine serging depending on the rug's construction. Before we begin the serging process, we make sure your rug edges are solid enough. If your rug requires edge repairs, we reinforce them prior to serging for durability and long-lasting repairs.
Binding is used primarily on a tufted carpet, which is made into rugs. We take a narrow strip of fabric and place it over the raw edge of the rug and then secure it to prevent fraying. This gives your rug a nice finished look.
For many Oriental rugs and other heirloom rugs, rug patching may be economically and aesthetically the best repair choice. We recommend that patching be done as soon as holes are discovered to prevent more extensive damage.
Depending on the value of the Oriental rug and the extent of the damage, we may recommend rug reweaving. This is the most thorough, time-consuming, yet undoubtedly the best method to repair your Oriental rug or other fine area rugs to near original condition.
We clean the damaged area and sew new threads matching the texture and color of the original rug into the hole to rebuild the foundation of your rug. Once that task is accomplished, we must precisely duplicate the knots in the original design so repairs are not noticeable.
We can replace old or worn-out backings on any of your tufted area rugs, hooked rugs, or machine-made rugs to protect and maintain your area rug. A new rug backing will extend the life of your rug and help secure any rug tufts, knots, fringe, or scrim. Ask us about our natural and synthetic rug backing materials.
