Cushion Pillow Cover Repair and Restoration Los Angeles

Cushion cover repair and restoration is another type of service we provide for some of our clients. Usually these cushions have been in the family for a long time and do not have monetary values. In many cases they have sentimental values and the owners would like us to do the restoration. They maybe small in sizes, but the jobs are usually big. In most of the cases the cushion cover is made of silk and wool. It in interesting to see that wool parts are intact in better condition than the silk parts which are rotten and become like dust and powder when we want to start the process of restoration. We have to remove the rotten and damaged area to begin with the foundation and re-weaving.

This type of job is very time consuming and we have to use very thin threads of wool, silk or cotton. Only master weavers can do this kind of restoration and those repairmen and women who do ordinary jobs such as fringes and selvages cannot do this kind of delicate restorations.
