Fringe & Selvage
Fringes and sides ( selvages ) are the most commonly repaired areas. Repairs run from singular areas of attention to complete replacement or re-construction. Generally the carpet is looked at carefully and the options are laid out for the client to make an informed choice.
Re-weaving can range from a small dog chew on the side of a rug where a few warps, wefts and re-knotting are required, to larger areas that require exacting structural work. Like kind and quality of materials and hand knotting are used to match the original carpet. Everything is then hammered, brushed trimmed and ironed in the finishing process to restore the appearance of the original carpet.
Dye Work
Occasionally it is possible if necessary to rectify damage with careful dye work. Not all carpets can accept this so it is important to both see the rug and also to first test the process at no charge. If small warp and weft knots cannot be removed or pushed back into the rugs structure we can 'tip dye' the cotton to match the surrounding wool. Permanent and heat set silk and wool dyes are used in this very effective process.
