Handknotted Rug - Cleaning & Repair

A customer brought in his handknotted rug to our showroom a couple weeks ago with a few things in mind. He first wanted to have it deep cleaned as it had been 2 years since its last cleaning. He then showed us how the rug had started unraveling which the ends of the rug plainly showed. It also has a chunk that was missing that he hoped to have rewoven. Take a look at the before pics below:
This rug meant a lot to him, and he put it into the correct hands to have it cleaned and repaired. First we did our deep cleaning treatment to remove all dirt and debris before the repair started. After it was clean one of our master weavers started work on reweaving the chunk that was missing and then securing the ends so that the unraveling of the rug would stop. Take a look at the results below:
The cleaning brought back the color vibrancy, the reweaving brought its original condition back and the securing of the ends fortified the rugs structure so that it would not be susceptible to unraveling. It look absolutely beautiful and our customer while undoubtedly will have a huge smile on his face when his sees it during the pickup. If you have a rug that needs the ultimate in rug care maintenance/cleaning, bring it to Rug Ideas so we can take care of any rug care need you may have!
