Rug Restoration & Repair
Caring for Handmade Rugs and Kilims
We have years of extensive experience in providing the skilled care necessary to preserve thousands of hand knotted rugs and kilims, including treasured family heirlooms, collectible museum-quality antique rugs, and pieces appreciated for their decorative value in clients' homes.
As we often illustrate, to repair and restore rugs and kilims is a skilled and labor-intensive process, which can include:
Sourcing the right yarns to be used for the repair or restoration
Protecting the surrounding areas around the damage
Rebuilding all damaged or missing warp
Re-knotting pile while recreating missing or damaged motifs
Weaving weft to tighten knots or to recreate missing motifs as in the case of kilims
Binding selvages (selvedges) to prevent the edges from fraying
Binding and rebuilding fringes to prevent unraveling
We believe that combining these steps to restore a handmade rug or kilim is an art form, and we take great pride in it.
