Rug Fringe Repair

Repairing fringe damage is one of the most common forms of care that we provide.  Fringes are particularly vulnerable to damage - whether through aggressive vacuuming, the pulling of heavy furniture, or just ordinary wear.   As is often the case, the sooner that we can repair and/or restore a damaged fringe, the easier the repair will be.  The series of photos below illustrate a recent repair we did for a client.  In the first picture, the small damaged area is visible.  Not only was the fringe compromised, but part of the pile was also damaged and missing.  As the pictures illustrate, we rebuilt the warp and reknotted the missing pile.  Finally, we bound the fringe so as to minimize the risk of unraveling.
