Rug Repairs & Restoration

A Professional Art, Passed Through The Generations

Rug repairs and restoration should always be performed by experienced craftsmen; those who have studied the methods and implemented the intricate processes for many years.

At the Rug Experts, this kind of work is in our blood. Our family has repaired and restored antique and valuable rugs for decades, bringing them back to their former glories. We understand that the method of restoration needs to be consistent with the original make-up of the rug to maintain its beauty and durability.

Why repair your rugs?

They will increase in value

A hand-woven rug, especially one dyed with natural colours and maintained in good condition, not only retains but often increases in value over time due to its craftsmanship and quality.

They will last longer

Promptly repairing damaged rugs, especially high-quality ones, is crucial to prevent further deterioration. Quick restoration not only saves the rug but also preserves its intricate design, value, and longevity, ensuring enduring elegance and utility.

They will remain works of art

Antique rugs (those created over 100 years ago) are highly valued pieces of art with cultural significance. Keep them that way.

Key Considerations for Rug Repair & Restoration

When pondering whether to undertake a repair or restoration job for your rug, here are some essential factors to keep in mind:

  • Address Minor Issues Promptly: Small irregularities should be repaired as soon as they’re noticed. Delaying can lead to larger, more costly problems.
  • Inspect Regularly: Pay special attention to the sides and edges of your rug. Check them regularly for signs of ripping or tearing, and have any issues addressed by our professionals at the earliest.
  • Manage Humidity: Excess moisture due to high humidity can cause rugs to rot and decay. In humid areas like Sydney, it’s advisable to air out your rugs frequently to minimise moisture retention.
  • Tightly Woven Concerns: Rugs woven on a tight loom can wear out faster. Restoration can effectively address and rectify this issue.
  • Leveraging Symmetry: Most rugs and carpets adhere to symmetry, which is advantageous for experienced restorers. This symmetry makes it easier to reweave missing sections accurately.
