A Tibetan Rug For Repair From Florida

A couple of weeks ago, a reputable rug collector and cleaner from Miami, Florida referred one of his clients to us. This gentleman had a nice big Tibetan rug which had rotten borders caused by water damage. The extend of the damage was beyond repair. We consulted the owner and then removed all the damaged borders.
Then we did the bindings and selvages on the sides by hand. We also unraveled one inch of the rug from each end and secured the fringes. Since we secured the rug evenly from each side, the design of the  rug looks symmetrical now and not everybody can realize that this rug was repaired. The background of the rug was also very dirty and had so many nasty stains. Most of the stains were taken care of in our process of deep cleaning. Few of them were stain removed and the rug looks absolutely clean and fresh again.
We had received the rug by Fedex and shipped it back this afternoon. We're sure our client will be happy and will love his rug again. This is the message I received from this rug collector and cleaner after I sent him the before/after pictures:

"Looks amazing!!!!! Great work!!!!"
