My Rug Needs Repair?
Renaissance has a staff of dedicated rug repair experts that love rugs, other textiles and know how to care for them. 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 are a hand repair specialty workshop for rugs. We avoid the use of machine binding, surging and adhesives on hand-woven textiles. These shortcuts often destroy value, collectability, and longevity of rugs
Are My Oriental Rugs Worth Repairing?
This is an important question, fortunately, the owners at Renaissance have over 30 years of experience working with Oriental rugs. They understand the rug market and work with Portland's top rug dealers. The team at Renaissance can advise you on age, value and if repair makes sense on your rugs.
Sometimes old family Heirloom rugs such as that rug from grandma's house emotionally justify repairing that otherwise wouldn't make sense.
The edges of my tribal rug are frayed, tattered & forlorn what can be done?
The old saying "a stitch in time saves nine" applies here. 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 rug but also saves you from much more costly repairs down the road.
FRINGE, END TASSELS
We can hide fringe on a rug without destroying it or remove it if desired. We can also repair damaged fringe to look like new or match existing fringe on a vintage or antique rug.
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 new Nepalese rug only available in 10x14 that needs to fit a 10x10 space we can help.
I have a hole in my rug what can be done?
At Renaissance, We have a saying "We make problems, disappear" We repair holes, fraying, and missing pile all the time. The sooner these damages are addressed the less costly the repair will be.
