Hand Rug Repair

We know rugs and we know rug repair & restoration.  We will guide you through various options to preserve the integrity of your woven rug; new or antique.  A well-executed repair can 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, while economical, often destroy the aesthetics,  value, integrity, collectability, and reduce the overall longevity of fine rugs. We work with a wide variety of woven rugs and textiles Persian, Turkish, Afghan, Egyptian, Navajo, Mexican, Rio Grand, hand hook, Braided rugs

...a stitch in time

saves nine" applies to rugs; maybe it originated in the rug world?  Oriental rugs take a beating on the floor, worn and tattered by time or nibbled on by a 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. Renaissance specializes in traditional hand repairs of oriental rugs. Renaissance maintains a large inventory of registration yarns to fix new and antique oriental rugs 



Size matters. Is that existing rug too big to fit in your new home? We are experts at altering area rugs to different sizes.  Perhaps you have found that dream Nepalese rug 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 takes a beating, often the ends of oriental rugs need repair or restoration, We can 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.  Don't like the fringe, tassels on end look on your rug?  We can hide fringe without destroying its value. Or we can remove the fringe completely if desired for a more modern clean rug look.
