Oriental Rug Spa offer a specialist Persian, Oriental and Contemporary rug cleaning in Hungerford, Berkshire. 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.
Weaving a Rug
Once the weaving process has been completed it is impossible to go back and correct mistakes, so weaving a successful pattern depends on the ability to plan the exact arrangements of the knots from the beginning. Consideration also has to be given to how to finish the sides and ends of each piece. The sides, or selvedges, are strengthened with extra wrapping material as each line of knots is added. The warp ends (fringes) are tied or braided in a variety of ways to prevent loss of knots. The women of the home weave together in groups or individually when they have time away from their other household duties. The activity can be a surprisingly lively affair. The women may sing together and their work is punctuated by the rhythmic beating of the combs and other implements used. A rug may take several months to complete depending on the size and density of knots.
