Silk Rug Fringe/Tassels Repair at Rug Ideas, Los Angeles

A carpet cleaner sent us a rug which was damaged on the ends in the process of cleaning. The foundation of this rug was silk. He wanted us to fix this for him. His client claimed she had bought this 6' x 9' rug for $11,000!
We received the rug by UPS ground and assigned one of our master weavers to do the job. Sometimes our biggest challenge is to find the right yarn and material to match the color, and the original material/construction of the rug we want to repair.
We did the re-fringing on both ends and the result was very good as it can be seen in these pictures.

We sent the rug back with UPS ground and the client was very happy with the repair as the rug looked like the damage never happened.

The good point about hand made/knotted rugs is that we can almost do any kind of repair and restoration on them.
