Repairs & Restoration
Rugs often lead a very tough life. Pets, insects, flower pots, the wear and tear of daily usetake their toll; there are times when something has to be done.
Many different stabilisation, rug repair and restoration techniques can be used to treat these weavings. The work is done by hand; it requires skill, experience and the right materials
Holes and damage can be rewoven with nearly undetectable results, or simply sewn to prevent further loss. Fringe repairs and edge repairs are other common tasks that we undertake. Worn areas can be restored, though extensive overall wear can be cost-prohibitive to treat. Good results require materials with the closest match of colour, fibre and spin.
Careful assessment of condition and good planning are essential. Here at RugWash w e are experienced in this work and encourage discussion to reach a clear understanding of what can be expected.
