Restoration and repair of area carpets, when there are structural damages to the carpets, help to preserve and maintain usability of handmade carpets. In short explanation, hand knotted carpets are made on a foundation of warps and wefts that holds the knotted piles. Usually, the area carpet foundations are being kept together by professionally made hand bindings on both sides.
The fringes on the two heads of the area rugs with classic look are in fact the warps of the carpets. Once making of a hand knotted carpet is completed, it is removed from the carpet frame (loom) by cutting the warps off of it. End stop (double knots or chains) must be added to what is called fringes after bringing the carpet down from the loom to keep the knots intact within the carpet foundation.
Flat weave rug
With some exceptions, the structure of other types of handmade carpets (non hand knotted carpets) is more or less similar to hand knotted carpets. For example, Kelims and Navajos are hand woven area rugs without piles, or Tufted carpets are piled handmade carpets without actual knots. Regardless of the type of area carpet, the first important factor to a successful restoration is to have the knowledge base of all types of area carpet structures. When there is damage to any parts of the area rug structure, the damage must be professionally treated to prevent further damages and to keep your precious area carpet in good shape.

Area Rug Foundation Repair
Damages to area rug foundations are the most severe type. You can identify this category of area rug damage, if you find a hole or ripped spot in the carpet. It may happen for many different reasons. For example it could the result of keeping a potted plant on your carpet for a while, or your dog chewing the rug, or physically cutting a piece of the rug out, etc. For whatever reason the carpet’s warps and wefts in some areas are being destroyed, new warps and wefts must be created to ensure proper re piling/re weaving can be done.

Area Rug Binding Repair
One of the common problems in area rugs happens to the binding part of the area carpets. Bindings could get broken, separated from the area rug base, or get damaged due to wear and tear or any other reason. Depending on the severity of the damage, we recommend either full hand binding replacement over the area rug sides, or spot binding repair.
Area Rug Fringing Repair
High traffic areas and using vacuum cleaners with power heads to clean the fringes are the most common reasons for causing damages to the area carpet fringes. Refringing is an option to revive your area rug and to bring back the original look of the carpet.
Unraveling is another common damage to the area rugs. It happens when the area rug fringes are worned out and the end stop totally or partially is lost or loosened. It is important to add new end stop to stop further unraveling to your area rug. The two artisan techniques are double knots and chains. We offer either of these techniques based on the look of your area rug.
