Rug Repair and Restoration Services for Fine Antique Rugs in New York City
Antique Rug Repair and Restoration by Professionals in New York City: The purpose of repairing rare, antique or valuable rug is to restore the original beauty and physical integrity that may have been damaged by years of use.
This is accomplished by recreating or reweaving portions of the carpet, either the surface pile, or in the case of holes, even the underlying foundation as well.
Such antique rug repair and restoration requires enormous technical skill and precision, as well as discernment in the matching of yarn, texture and color. This process requires expertise and a refined eye to match as well as possible the original texture of the carpet so that the repair will not be detectable.
The extent of restoration that may be required in both in time and expense depends not only on condition, but also on the value of the carpet in relation to the cost of the repair. A knowledgeable dealer in antique carpets and vintage rugs with market expertise will make this decision. Such restoration can make a damaged piece usable and commercially viable once again. But ultimately the greatest reward in rug cleaning and repairing your antique Oriental rugs is the knowledge that a rare and beautiful work of art is being preserved for generations to come.

Before Rug Repair:
This charming Dagestan prayer rug was badly damaged. Not only was the pile worn to the foundations in the field and lower border, but there was also a large hole and substantial portions of the outer border were missing. This latter damage required rebuilding the foundation of the areas that were lost, and then repiling them.
After Rug Repair:
The repiling of the field was exceptionally difficult because the pile was low, and such low pile is the hardest to match or replace. Now we can once again enjoy the beauty of its design and color.
Before Carpet Restoration:
This damage on this Kuba was not too extensive, but even such limited damage can be enough to spoil the effect of its fine, delicate design. The outer minor border or guard stripe had to be completely restored, and the scattered wear in the field needed to re-piled at a low yet even level.
After Carpet Restoration:
The result is remarkable. The crisp, jewel-like effect of the design has once again come to life.
