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.
Oriental Rug Knotting
Oriental rugs and carpets are hand woven on either horizontal or vertical looms. The weaver will initially stretch warp strands from the top of the loom to the bottom. The warp strands will form the foundation and the resultant fringe. Rows of knots are then woven across the width of the loom. Weft strands are woven in between each row of knots to help align each row and also provide strength to the structure. The weaver tightens the weft strands against each row of knots with a beating comb. This will determine the direction of the pile once the carpet has been finished. Having knotted the entire carpet, the ends of the warp strands are cut from the loom to allow the carpet to be taken down. The ends of the warp strands are then tied or woven in various way to create the fringe.
