Rug Cleaning Kent
Oriental Rug Spa offer a specialist Persian, Oriental and Contemporary rug cleaning for Kent. 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.
Cottage Weaving Design
Cottage weavers that work from home generally copy designs from other rugs or workshop patterns. The workshop rugs are finely woven and to reproduce this type of weaving at home while copying a design is difficult to achieve. The swirling smooth lines of the floral designs in the workshop pieces will be reproduced with a more angular geometric style in the cottage replica. Another issue is how to create neat corners in the border. Borders normally have an alternating pattern which repeats around the rug. In order to produce a neat transition, a motif is placed at forty-five degrees in each corner. This can be difficult to achieve for the cottage weaver, and usually results in a corner which may not symmetrically represent the other corners. This however, is one of the appeals of cottage weavings.
