Cleaning & Repair - Antique Malayer Hamedan Rug

A new customer of ours brought in a beautiful rug that needed some attention. The rug was a Malayer Hamedan rug and was 100 years old. It needed a professional deep cleaning as well as repair work done. Both ends and sides were in different stages of unraveling and needed securing and rebinding to get it's structure sound again. Take a look at some before pics below:
We first secured the rugs ends and sides to prevent any further unraveling from happening while we proceeded with the deep cleaning. After the deep cleaning, sanitizing and deodorizing was complete we put the rug in the hands of one of our master weavers so that the repairs could be completed. New Zealand wool was used for the sides and the work was all done by hand. The results are fabulous; take a look below:
This antique Malayer Hamedan rug now looks absolutely beautiful and is in great condition. The owners were actually speechless for a minute when they saw how good the rug looked after the cleaning and repairs.  They have since contacted us again to pickup a set of rugs they also have that need the same great attention to detail that Rug Ideas is known for. If you have a rug that needs some TLC, contact us at Rug Ideas so we can step you through your options for cleaning & repair!
