Proffessionally Cutting Your Oriental Rugs

One of the mind-boggling concepts in the rug business is cutting oriental handmade rugs. Although cutting a handmade rug can be crucial, professionally cutting it will not hurt it's beauty and it's value. We have cut many rugs for our customers. Their rugs either did not fit in the place they wanted or the rugs were damaged to the point that the healthiest way for the rug was just to cut them down while preserving as much of it as possible. While maintaining as much of the rug, we do our best to match the rug so it continues its symmetric design. We secure the selvages and all other loose parts of the rug so it does not open up. You can keep enjoying your beautiful rug for many more years after it is professionally cut and secured.

That makes me a little sad. It destroys the natural symmetry of the rug.

Hi Deidre. Thank you very much for commenting. We try not to cut rugs to make them smaller but sometimes that is the only solution to a problem like a necessary surgery.

It is good that let your clients know that if they find the right rug that is the wrong size something can be done to make it fit. If more people know this then there might be less rugs tossed out or passed by.
