Rug Carpet Re-fringing in Los Angeles

We received a very fine silk foundation hand knotted rug with damages on both ends and missing/rotten fringes. This rug was shipped to us from out of town by a colleague for repair and restoration of the fringes at both ends.
We assigned one of our master weavers to take care of the job. The first step was finding the right type of silk threads/yarn with the same thickness, construction and color.
The next step was to re-weaving the new silk fringing into the construction and body of the rug. The concentration of the new fringes should math the original fringes. Each cluster of fringe had 8 threads/fringes in it and we matched this.

Then we had to cut the length of newly installed/implanted fringes to match the length of the original fringes.
 The result was very good and almost no one can tell if this nice rug had ever damages on the fringes. So if you have a rug which had damaged fringes at the ends, send us a couple of pictures for a quote for a professional repair or bring it in for a free inspection and repair estimate.
