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.
Initially the price of new synthetic dyes introduced in the 1860s did not encourage widespread use. However they were easier to use and eventually became more cost-effective. Once they became more widely accepted amongst weavers and dyers the variation in colours available also began to expand. Tribal weavers did not always dye their own wool. Indigo, for example, was not an easy colour to achieve and most nomadic weavers would use the services of dyers situated in villages or towns. Preference for colour has always been subjective and especially combinations of colours. Even though the introduction of synthetic dyes produced a wider range of available colours, they often appeared synthetic and not natural to the eye. To begin with the synthetic dyes were not very stable and had a tendency to run and ruin the overall appearance of the piece.
