Rug Downsizing

At Rug Ideas we sometimes get rugs that come in that have an area with extreme damage. Often times it is due to water damage, other times it is a pet that tore apart a piece of the rug, and we have even seen normal wear and tear damage a rug to the point of no return. These rugs are not lost! We can do custom jobs of downsizing the rug so that the damaged area is taken out and then the rug is re-secured to make in essence a new rug. Take a look at some before pics of a rug that we recently did downsizing to:
The damaged piece is easily visible in the above pics and that was the area that we surgically removed from the rest of the rug. After the offending piece was removed, one of our master weavers did the binding to get the rug's structure back to normal. All the work was done by hand and the results came out great. Take a look below:
One could never tell that this rug had been downsized and it looks absolutely fantastic. If you have a rug that has a damaged piece that is beyond restoration, bring it in to Rug Ideas so we can step you through the process of saving your rug through downsizing. We can save your rug!
