Bucks County, PA rugstore Brandon Oriental Rugs - www.BrandonRugs.com - Performs Rug Repair to Make the Best of a Customer's Damaged Rug Problem
Our customer in Warrington, PA inherited several hand-knotted oriental rugs from his father that were made in Kerman, Iran about forty years ago . One of the rugs, approximately 10x10 square, suffered severe moth damage while in storage following sale of the parent's home, and our customer asked Brandon for an inexpensive remedy.
Reweaving of such a large area of pile loss (as seen in the second image - above) would have been quite costly; and unjustified relative to the rug's resale value at present.
Still, our customer hoped to be able to use the rug in a second home he owns, and desired some kind of cosmetic improvement in the rug's appearance if possible to permit it.
Brandon Oriental Rugs (which offers rug cleaning and rug repair services for oriental rugs to customers in a large region surrounding Bucks County, PA) consulted with numerous rug artisans to see what might be possible.
The option chosen by our customer is to have the rug reduced in size by cutting off the entire border outside the outer guard stripe. This completely eliminates the damaged section, and the need for any reweaving or pile replacement. After cutting, the edges will be bound all around (per the third image below) and a replacement fringe sewn to the ends to protect them and restore the original look of the rug.
This repair is a fractional cost of that to reweave the sections that were moth-damaged, and provides a rug that still looks beautiful and offers an extended period of use (with pride) in his home.
Old, worn and damaged hand-knotted rugs do NOT need to be trashed. Extended enjoyment of them is possible via use of a number of remedies; many of them economically justified.
