Need New Fringes on your Area Rug?
We received this beautiful Persian area rug for cleaning and fringe repair. The fringes got a little too much love from the vacuum cleaner and from use.
After a good deep cleaning we sent this rug to our hand repair guy to see what he recommended.
The fringes of the rug were only worn down to the knot and to do the usual overcast stitch to stabilize the rug would have been a lot of work for our rug repair guy and expensive for the client.
Our rug repair guy would of had to unweave the fringes and the kilim (the white flat part between the rug and fringes) then do the overcast stitching. Very time consuming and unnecessary for this rug.
This is the back of the rug showing the original knots after repair.
Our hand repair guy trimmed back the original fringes to the knots, made them even in length, and then he sewed a fringe to the top side of the rug.
The new fringes hide the original knots and give the rug a fresh look. When fringes get worn down or stained they make your rug unlovable. Luv-A-Rug can either replace the fringes or remove them completely.
It doesn't matter what kind of rug you have either wool, synthetic, hand made or machine made, if you love the rug, but the fringes aren't pristine bring it to Luv-A-Rug.
We can make your rug look fresh and new with new fringes or a nice clean edge with binding or serging. We are located at 445 Beta St, off Alpha St, Victoria BC. 250-475-3922/ 1-800-886-2802.
