Rug Repair and Restoration
As oriental rugs age, repair becomes an important part of their regular maintenance. Whether your rug has been slowly unraveling throughout the years as a result of high foot traffic or it has been damaged overnight by a teething dog and your cat scratching on the carpet. It’s extremely vital to repair any damaged areas to keep them from getting worse. We have our in house master weaver and restorer working on site in our store, who does all repairs by hand – never by machine – using hand spun wool in all colors to preserve the natural and unique look of your rug.
