We recently did repair and restoration of three rugs for a rug dealer from Florida. He was referred to us by a mutual friend. Two of these rugs were antique 120-year old Isfahan carpets which were damaged on the ends, sides and in the middle. Their foundation was very fragile.
The other rug was a silk Chinese rug. It was damaged on three different areas by a dog. We dyed the silk yarn to match the color. We matched the construction and design and made the foundation based on which we rewove the damaged areas. The difficult part was redoing the one inch flat-weave on the fringes. The repair came out very good.
This rug dealer received the rugs yesterday. He was so happy and blown away with the quality of the repair jobs. He provided us with a testimonial video. We edited the video and added the before and after pictures and a short weaving video to this testimonial. You can watch it here. It feels so good to see happy customers.
