Holes and Tears.
Heavy furniture placed on top if a rug can cause a lot of pressure on the foundations of a hand knotted rug and can then lead to a hole developing in the middle of the rug.
Another cause of holes in the middle could be down to moth damage where the wool fibres have been eaten away.
There are several options when it come to securing/restoring a hole/tear.
Depending on the condition of the rug and what has caused the hole there could be an option to secure or restore the hole.
From putting a securing stitch around the area so it doesn’t get any worse to putting in new supporting warp and weft founds and re-weaving in new knots to create the pile.
Please note: We provide you with several options for securing and restoration work, which will range from cost effective securing to extensive full restoration that you can choose from, that will suit both your budget and your rug.
