One of our customers brought in a beautiful antique Kerman Rug for cleaning recently. It is a piece that has been in their family for a while and holds a lot of sentimental value to them. Persian Kerman rugs are extremely beautiful and are woven with intense care. In fact, tightly woven rugs often have great detailing and artwork on them. Of course, Kirman rugs have been made for a very, very long time, and my friend Dr. Taher Sabahi who lives in Torino, Italy has written a book on 500 years of rug weaving history in Kerman.
Many Kerman rugs are basically floral in their designs with roses. Along with flowers, one often finds animals and humans depicted on these rugs; in fact, the Tree of Life (as in the case of this particular rug) has also been seen in many cases.
Our customer expressed interest in hanging the rug once it was deep cleaned, and we had the perfect answer. At Rug Ideas we do canvas installation on rugs and tapestries so that they can be used for hanging/displaying on the wall. One of our weavers sewed on the canvas to the back/top of the rug by hand; the installation allows a rod to be placed through the center gap of the canvas and makes for easy hanging.
The installation came out great and this rug is now ready to be hung/displayed. Our customer was thrilled when they saw the results and thanked us for doing a great job. Maybe you have a rug or tapestry in your home that you would like to hang and display; if so come by and see us. Canvas installation is just one of the great services we offer to our customers and we love to see the smiles that our results bring!
