A Stolen Area Rug

Today we had a very old wool Persian antique rug come in from a regular client in the Ten mile point area of Victoria BC.

He wants this rug cleaned and wrapped in Tyvek for long term storage and protection against moisture and moths. This rug has damaged ends and sides and will degrade quickly with use. It is important to have your rug repaired if you are going to continue using it otherwise the rug will then need very expensive restoration work.

The area rug owner asked us hat we could tell him about his rug. He did not not know much about it so my boss Dusty did a quick video inspection and then the client mentioned that this rug was in-fact stolen! I love it when a rug has a great story behind it.

Watch the video to see for yourself.
