Persian Rug, Antique Rug Cleaning and Repair Los Angeles

We receive many antique rugs for cleaning and repair from all over the country. This time, we received a pair of hand knotted antique Persian Farahan carpets sent to us by a very reputable rug collector from Miami, Florida. Both rugs had severe damages on the ends.

To do the repair, first we mad foundation, based on which we could tie the knots and re-weave the damaged areas. This was a very delicate job and only a master weaver who knows the construction, can match the design and color, can do the job. This requires a high level of expertise and long time practice.

We assigned one of our on-site master weavers to work on this project. He worked for almost three weeks to finish the complete restoration of one rug.

 This rug looks absolutely beautiful now and we have started the repair of the second piece. We have to do the same by making the foundations on the loom, and re-weaving the damaged areas.

Making rugs is an art and preserving these objects of art is our passion. If you have a damaged rug, bring it to us and let us save it and bring it back to life. Our mission statement is to preserve as many rugs as we can.
