The purpose of repairing rare and valuable carpets is to restore the original beauty and physical integrity that may have been damaged by years of use. This is accomplished by recreating or reweaving portions of the carpet through either the surface pile or, in the case of holes, even the underlying foundation as well. Such restoration requires enormous technical skill and precision as well as discernment in the matching of yarn texture and color. This process requires expertise and a refined eye to match the original texture of the carpet so that the repair will not be detectable. The extent of restoration that may be required in both time and expense depends not only on condition, but also on the value of the carpet in relation to the cost of the repair. A knowledgeable firm in antique carpets with market expertise will make this decision. Such restoration can make a damaged piece usable and commercially viable once again. But ultimately the greatest reward in repairing an antique oriental rug is the knowledge that a rare and beautiful work of art is being preserved for generations to come.
If you would like to have your rug repaired, either email us a picture of the damaged area from the backside or simply bring the rug in for us to take a look at it. No matter what has been done, Aras Rug Company has the knowledge, experience and skill to repair and restore your rugs as good as new.
