Our Oriental rug repair specialists are trained and experienced in working with a variety of machine and hand made rugs, such as Oriental, Persian, Indian, Afghan, Pakistani, Moroccan, Tunisian, Turkish, Caucasian, Chinese, Romanian, Spanish, Navajo, and many other specialty rugs.

Depending on your rug’s repair needs and the monetary and sentimental value of the rug, we can offer different levels of repair, from patching to complete reweaving. Regular professional rug cleaning and timely area rug repair.

It is important to inspect the rug periodically for any rug damage and normal wear and tear to prevent more extensive and expensive rug repair and restoration costs. Oriental rug repair is a unique art form, requiring craftsmanship, skill and understanding of rug construction.

We utilize our knowledge of rug structure and our vast experience in the industry to provide outstanding Oriental rug repair services to our customers in the Raleigh, NC and surrounding areas. We service the following areas: Wake Forest, Raleigh, Chapel Hill, Cary, Durham, Louisburg, Youngsville, Franklinton, Rolesville, Apex, Creedmoor (and many more). Listed below are the most common rug repairs we provide.

Rug Fringe Repair

We examine your Oriental rug to determine the type of fringe repair it requires based on rug construction. If your rug’s edges are hand knotted, they need to be rewrapped by hand, paying close attention to the rug’s colors and structure. This is a very elaborate and meticulous process. If, on the other hand, your Oriental rug is machine made, power fringing is appropriate and less time consuming. If you would like to completely change the fringe, we have a wide variety of colors and fabrics to choose from. Some customers prefer to remove the fringe altogether.

Rug Edge Serging

The sides of your Oriental rugs must be secured with wool, cotton or synthetic thread to protect them and keep them from unraveling. This process of serging gives your rug a fine finished appearance. We offer both hand serging and machine serging depending on rug construction. Before we begin the serging process, we make sure your rug edges are solid enough. If your rug edges require repairs, we reinforce them prior to serging to add durability and make the repairs last.

Rug Edge Binding

Binding is used primarily on tufted carpet, which is made into rugs. We take a narrow strip of fabric and place it over the raw edge of the rug and then secure it to prevent fraying. This gives your rug a nice finished look.

Rug Patching

For many Oriental rugs, patching may be economically and aesthetically the best repair choice. We recommend that patching be done as soon as holes are discovered to prevent more extensive damage.

Oriental Rug Reweaving

Depending on the value of the Oriental rug and the extent of the damage, we may recommend a rug reweaving process. This is the most thorough, time consuming, yet undoubtedly the best method to repair your Oriental rug closest to its original condition. We clean the damaged area and sew new threads matching the texture and color of the original rug into the hole to rebuild the foundation of your rug. Once that task is accomplished, we must precisely duplicate the knots in the original design so repairs are not noticeable.

Rug Backing Repair

We see different types of backing on a variety of Oriental rugs, from hooked rugs to machine rugs. Backing will extend the life of your rug by protecting the back and in some cases, by helping secure the rug’s knots in place. If you would like to replace your old or worn-out backing, we have many types to choose from.
