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.
Silk is the most costly and precious material used in rug weaving. The fibre is soft, lustrous and very fine. Being a very thin fibre it can be used to produce extremely fine knots, permitting the creation of highly refined pieces. Silk tends to be used mainly in city workshops where rugs and carpets are produced to order. Silk is used primarily in the pile, either combined with wool or on its own. It is commonly used to highlight particular parts of the design, such as the edges of floral elements. Silk is also used for the foundation. Silk, along with wool and cotton, is spun into thread by twisting the fibres. This can be achieved by twisting clockwise (Z twisting), or anti-clockwise (S twisting). Analysis of the twisting can help with identification.
