You Think You Are Protecting Your Rugs?!
You have beautiful hand knotted rugs and would like to protect them from wear and tear. You put tapes full of chemicals on the fringes at the ends to protect the fringes and the carpets! This is wrong. Putting tapes and even worst, gluing it or using duct-tapes will destroy the fringes. Vacuum the rugs once in a week or so, professionally clean them by a rug cleaner and not a wall-wall carpet cleaner once in two years and be gentle with vacuuming the fringes to save and protect your rugs.
