Repairs on Oriental/Area Rugs

I had an interesting rug in the other day that I wanted to tell you about. It was a really old and worn Painted Sarouch from about 1925-30. It was a “loved” rug and had graced an elegant home for many years. But had begun to look pretty bare and rough.

After a good cleaning there was a sparkle in the yarn that made me want to repair the rug. Previous repairs had been applied such as a binding sewn on by machine on all sides so the fringe was gone and the sides looked awful.

I removed the machine binding and got to work. I serged the sides of the rug in a matching cranberry yarn and frayed the ends of the rug out so that a small fringe was created. It was reinforced on the ends with stitching and the curling sides were eliminated with leather strips applied to the back of the rug.

Our customer was very pleased to see the enormous transformation that her little rug went through. We did not make it look new but it sure does look a lot better than when it came in. She told me that she is going to move it from the front door to a spot next to her bed so that it will get a little less wear and she can put her feet on it in the morning when she wakes up.
