Rug Repair Los Angeles: A Damaged Tabriz Rug

Rug repair not only saves the rugs, it adds to the beauty of them. We received a Tabriz rug made of un-dyed wood for cleaning. This type of production was very popular in the 1960's. These hand knotted Tabriz rugs had only 3-4 colors of white, brown, gray (silver) and black, all natural. The rug we got was severely damaged at the ends and fringes were loose and the knots were coming off. We proposed the repair and the owner did not want to spend money on the repair. After a brief explanation, she agreed and we first did the repair and then followed with professional deep cleaning of this Tabriz Persian carpet. This lady liked the repair and appearance of the rug when she picked up the rug.

I always ask the owners of the rugs we receive for cleaning, repair or appraisal to see for how long they have had the rugs and how much they know about their rugs. In many cases they do not know much about their rugs and love to receive information.
