Repair of a Late 19th Century Kashan Rug, Kashan carpet

A client of ours brought in a late 19th century hand knotted antique Persian Kashan rug for cleaning and repair. One part of this rug was severely damaged and needed a complete re-weave.

First we hand washed the rug and the process of cleaning started with light dusting to make sure all the dust and dry soil was out of the rug. Then we shampooed the rug with WoolSafe rug shampoo followed with multiple rounds of rinsing. We dried the rug naturally and flat in the sun.We assigned one of our master weavers to take care of the repair which took us roughly three weeks.

We had to make the foundation first and then the process of re-weaving started. Our weaver matched the color, design, and the construction.

If you have an antique, semi-old or even a new damaged rug, give us a call so we can discuss the options and the charges of the repair. We're open six days a week. Monday to Friday from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm and Saturdays from 12:00 to 5:00 pm
