Hand Rug Repair
The dedicated staff at Renaissance love working with rugs and related textiles, more importantly, we know how to properly repair textiles. We will guide you through various options to preserve the integrity of your rug, restore its beauty, maintain the value, and keep it usable for generations.
We avoid the use of machine binding, surging, and adhesives on hand-woven textiles. These shortcuts often destroy the aesthetics, value, Integrity, collectability, and reduce the longevity of fine rugs.
WE REPAIR ALL KINDS OF WOVEN TEXTILES
Persian, Braided, Felt, Flokati, Hook, Kilim, Navajo, Sumac, Tapestries, Tribal Bags and more
The edges of my tribal rug are frayed, tattered & forlorn what can be done?
...a stitch in time.
The old saying "a stitch in time saves nine" applies to rugs. Worn and tattered by time or nibbled on by your new puppy, catching a frayed end or side early not only saves the value of your oriental rug but also saves you from much more costly repairs down the road. The restoration experts at Renaissance can help with both.
We can alter the size of a new rug to fit a room or to make a unique size. This is not advisable with old rugs as it often destroys the value and symmetry of design. Perhaps you have found that Nepalese rug only available in 10x14 that needs to fit a 10x10 space we can help. We work with Portland's top dealers & designers with such needs all the time.
FRINGE, END TASSELS
Hate the fringe ends on your rug we can hide fringe without destroying its value. Or we can remove fringe completely if desired. Have damaged fringe, We can also repair fringe to look like new or match existing fringe on a vintage or antique rug to make the repair look age-relevant to the original.
