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.
Insect dyes play an important role when it comes to obtaining certain colours for rugs and carpets. When used to dye wool and silk they produce a set of bluish reds varying from pink to lilac and bright crimson to deep red-brown-purple. The re-brown-purple is referred to as congealed blood or oxblood. These colours are common in court carpets and textiles. These colours are obtained using Indian lac, a dye derived from the insect Coccus Lacca. In the mid-nineteenth century cochineal took the place of lac when Europeans discovered how to cultivate the Mexican cochineal insect and its use extended to village and tribal carpets.
