Expert Fine Area Rug Repair
We specialize in repairing handmade area rugs so they can be passed on from generation to generation, all while maintaining the value and integrity of your rug. Similar to professional cleaning, a proper repair consists of background knowledge and, most importantly, skill. If a repair job has been done correctly, it should last 50+ years.
A repair job should never be attempted on a rug If the person doing the sewing is unaware of the knowledge. That is why Cameron and Megan have been trained properly through the years to do handmade repairs, and now teach their own courses on how to preserve these art textiles.

This page consists of many different repairs that we do here in our facility, but it does not consist of everything. No matter what form of damage you have on your area rug, let us take a look at it before you throw it in the garbage! Chances are, it can be fixed!
Along with fringe, the sidecords on your area rug tend to take a lot of beatings. Vacuuming too close to the perimeter, too much traffic on the edge, or your new puppy that chewed off the corner, it can be fixed! We can re-wrap your sidecord to cover up the wear and make it look more uniform, and we can build a brand new edge that may have gotten torn off
The most popular form of damage that comes into our facility is fringe. Fringe can get damaged the same way sidecords can. In additional to this, fringe can also have bleach damage due to too much harsh chemicals used on the rug during a cleaning process in the past. Do not worry, we have you covered here too.

Weaving is a more advanced technique and takes a very long time to learn how to read a rugs story from the knots. The type of knot your rug is woven from, the original fiber chosen to weave this rug with, the colors and the pattern are all taken into consideration when a textile needs to be rewoven.

Patching can sometimes be a better alternative to your budget and the value of the rug when you compare reweaving or using a patch. Patches are typically never a 100% match to the original pattern of the rug, but the goal of a patch is to secure the hole and the knots surrounding, while also adding fibers and patterns back into the rug to bring it back to life
