Balouch Rug Patch Repair at Rug Ideas, Los Angeles

A client brought in a Balouch rug for repair a few days ago. It had a big hole in it and he wanted us to patch it for him.

The good thing was that he had the patch. Its design and color palette did not exactly match the rug, but this is what he had and this is what he wanted us to use.

This is the patch that our client provided. We used it to patch and cover the big hole.

So one of our repair personnel took care of the patch and fixed it. This is not as fine as re-weaving which we could do for this customer, but this is what he could afford, and this is what he wanted.

In many cases, patching a rug could be a good alternative if customer does not want to spend money on reweaving the hole or the damaged area. Of course one challenge here is to find the right match with the same kind of design, construction, and color scheme. But if customer can lower her expectations, patching could be something to consider.
