Rug repair & restoration
It’s one of the ironies of owning a fine handmade rug. It takes an experienced artisan hundreds of hours to create a beautiful hand knotted rug. Even the casual observer can clearly tell it’s a work of art. Yet the minute you place it on the floor it’s destined for a lifetime of wear and tear. But we don’t expect you to stop walking on your rug, after all, that’s what they were made for.
The decision whether or not to invest in rug repair and restoring a damaged rug or textile depends on the value of the piece, extent of damage, prospects for satisfactory results, and the sentimental or historical significance. By its nature, hand restoration is slow and expensive, but an experienced professional can work efficiently and nearly invisibly. It is worth finding a restorer who specialises in the type of work needed. Persis Rugs offers a full range of rug repair and restoration services, including re-weaving and re-knotting, conservation and mounting and edge stabilisation.
