Securing Your Rug
Securing your rug is an important part of keeping it in it's best shape for years to come and is sometimes overlooked. Take a look at the pic above and notice how the fringes are slowly unraveling into the foundation of the rug. This unraveling is just like a cavity, where at first glance it doesn't seem too bad... until one day the cavity gets too deep, the rug's appearance get worse while the ends continue to unravel.
This next pic is of the same rug after securing has been done to prevent any further inward damage to the rug. The work is done completely by hand and each knot done provides strength to the foundation where the fringes and rug pattern meet. This rug now has the strength it needs to endure many more years of use.
If you have a rug that is slowly starting to unravel at the ends, come see us so we can help secure your rug and get that "cavity" taken care of!
