Navajo Rug Cleaning

 




Navajo rugs are among the most beautiful and unique rugs in the weaving world.  Their bright colors, their bold motifs, and the beautiful composition of countless pieces are what have cemented Navajo rugs as timeless works of art.  The beautiful Navajo rugs above, with its vibrant blue and beige color palette, and its striking geometric motifs, would look stunning on a wall, floor, sofa, or virtually anywhere.  Similar to any hand woven rug, Navajo rugs should be professionally cleaned every few years.  A professional rug cleaning, even if it is done every few years or so, will go a long way in preserving these beautiful rugs for generations. --www.traditionalrugrepair.com

Navajo Rug Repair - Process and Final Result



As with most other rug restoration and rug repair projects, our first step in our recent project was professionally cleaning the Navajo rug.  Cleaning is advised so that embedded particles are removed from the fibers, and so that the yarns used in the repaired section will match as closely as possible the color of the (clean) original rug.



After cleaning the Navajo rug, we nailed the rug to a wooden frame and then extended warp at the rug's edge.  The vertical strands pictured above are the new warp threads.




Finally, we rewove the weft keeping the original motif and color palette.  The final result, pictured above, is our latest Navajo rug repair.  With proper care and cleaning, this rug can be enjoyed for years to come.  --www.traditionalrugrepair.com
