Repairing & Restoration
Rug Restoration & Repairing:
Repairing rugs early, when only a few stitches are needed, is preferable to costly restoration later. The Rug Guru offers quality repair and restoration for damage to rugs due to aging, accident or wear. Yarns, colours and techniques are matched - with custom dyeing when necessary. Due to the non-standardized production of modern rugs, we continually find new situations and materials that call for new approaches and unique solutions to restoration. Rug restoration is traditionally a utilitarian craft. However, in The Rug Guru hands this skill has been elevated both to an art and a science. The repair and restoration of Oriental rugs - both ancient and modern - benefits greatly from The Rug Guru long experience and unmatched expertise.

The rug Guru Nevertheless, Repairing involves fixing any sort of damage, holes, lost piles, binding, fringing, edging as best as and as closest possible to the original condition. Repairing of the rug or Kelim etc prevent troubles from arising further damages to the rug. Each repairing has different methods to deal with. It depends on the foundation materials, construction of weft and wraps, thickness and thinness of the rug, etc. Any damaged place should be fixed or at least to be eliminated for further expansion. Try not to ignore these, they will only get bigger. Reweaving holes is easier if the warp and the weft of the rug do not have to be replaced in addition to re-piling or re-knotting. It is very important that the right yarn texture, finish, and colour are matched to the existing rug. For this reason sewing in patches has limited value, if any - especially on a good Oriental rug. Restoration and repairing by reweaving is highly recommended.
