Oriental Rug Spa offer a specialist Persian, Oriental and Contemporary rug cleaning for Hastings, East Sussex. We also offer a rug repair service. If you own a dirty or soiled rug that needs professional cleaning, then why not give us a call on 01276 423150. You can drop the rug into our wash facility, or we can arrange collection and delivery for you.
The rug wash process required can differ from rug to rug, so we offer various methods of rug cleaning, from full immersion washing to dry cleaning. All rug fibres can be cared for – wool, cotton, silk, viscose, rayon. We can carry out a pet stain and odour treatment, moth treatment and apply a fibre protection to resist against soiling and staining. We have extensive experience with cleaning antique rugs and rugs with unstable dyes and offer a rug repair service, including fringes, sides and pile reweaving.
Tribal weavers tend to create their rugs with patterns stored in their memory. To train their minds they learn many small patterns and use the colours within them in a different way. This is similar to remembering numbers. For example, it is easier to remember fifteen numbers with six figures than it is to remember six numbers with fifteen figures. Therefore, it is common that tribal weavings have repeated patterns throughout the design. The rugs tend to be small, and although repeated, the patterns will not be identical throughout the piece. The simplicity, use of space, proportion, colour and quality of wool lends to the appeal of such carpets. It is common thought however, that repeating patterns are woven by people of limited originality whom lack creativity. The fact that they are woven completely from memory creates a natural, relaxed appearance which has been well planned and not derived by a contrived exact design. This is where their appeal lies.
