Professional Rug Repair Services Explained


First off, rugs without a fringe can have their side work repaired by our specialists. Serging by hand or machine will bind your rug’s edges to prevent unraveling. Hand-serging hand-made rugs is advised since it maintains their inherent charm. As machine serging does not preserve the hand-made artistry of such rugs, it is typically only a temporary solution.


Until something occurs to your rug’s fringe, you may not understand how strongly it brings the entire rug together. We can repair your rug from end to end, from unraveling fringe to adding new fringe altogether. Hand-sewing a pre-woven fringe can stop the unraveling of your rug and restore its original beauty. This can be done for just one end or for the entire rug. Also, hand-sewn fringe is simple to take off if you ever wish to return the rug to its original condition.


You do not necessarily have to cease using a rug when it develops a hole or tear. The best approach to fixing a rug after a tear or hole is to hand reweave it. While more labor-intensive than a simple patch, this method restores your rug’s original appearance using matching wool, cotton, or silk materials. Unless you’re an expert in rug repair, it’s almost impossible to tell where a hand-fixed rug was repaired.
