Karastan Rug Repair in Los Angeles

We picked up a big 10' x 14' Karastan rug for cleaning and repair from a client here in Los Angeles two weeks ago. Part of the top part of this rug was rotten and was severely damaged.We professionally wet washed it and gave it a full bath.

The owner of this rug did not want to spend a lot of money restoring it. She said just make it look better than what it looks now. Therefore we patched it with another 2' x 4' Karastan piece we had in our inventory.

The patch was secured from the back by sewing it from the inside construction. Then we put and glued special type of canvas strap on the back for extra support. We sewed back the fringes and now this severely damaged Karastan rug looks much nicer than it looked prior to our repair.
