Cleaning and Repair - Handknotted Rug

We had a return customer bring 4 handknotted pieces in recently to be deep cleaned; one of those pieces needed some extra attention. The ends of the rug in question had major unraveling happening and the design was already being lost. This advanced stage of unraveling needed to be stopped right away so that the rest of the rug could avoid such damage. Take a look at the before pics below:
We first secured the damaged areas so any further damage could be avoided while it was being deep cleaned. After the rug was finished going through our deep cleaning process, we started work on getting the ends into shape. One of our weavers did all the work by hand and the pics speak for themselves. Take a look below:
This handknotted rug looks great because of the deep cleaning and also is now strong and secure with the work done to repair the ends. Our customer was once again thoroughly excited with the results and was happy that the damage that had progressively getting worse over the last couple years, had stopped. If you have a rug that needs some extra attention bring it in to Rug Ideas so we can help you save and preserve your works of art!

Rug cleaning is no joke. It takes time and effort to do job properly and to get a spotless result. Being able to call professional help for the job is an advantage.
