1)In this procedure, first, we cut out the damaged part and take that part out of the rug.
2)Next, we set up and replace a new foundation layer in the missing spot( a foundation is a layer that is used initially when a new rug is planned to be built,so this process of replacing the foundation with the old one is nothing to worry about with quality materials and experts doing professional SURGERY on your rug!).
We have to set up the foundations from beneath the rug.

Rug Leathering is one of those optional luxury requests that a lot of our clients have for their delicate rugs and carpets and many others, like stair runners or hallway runners.
There are also other reasons of leathering the 4 sides of the rugs completely(the leathers are places on the backside of the rug), besides adding beauty to the edges and trim, it will prevent slips of the rugs and help the edges of the rug to not acquire curls and loss of shape (backlink to blocking) over time because of the leathers flat weight on the sides.
Here is the process of rug Leathering:
If your rug has a curl or loss of tissue structure and shape, we have to flat the edges by special tools or take it through a rug blocking process
Then we have to steam press the edges
Then our artisans start the leathering process, depending on the size of the rug, we trim and cut the leather sizes anywhere from 2cm to 5cm for the rug
Then by using special tools, we bind the leathers and Tadaaa! A beautiful rug is ready to be delivered to a house that knows the values of precious rugs
Over time, rugs pick up damage and wrinkle and curl and lose their flat structure and shape and become crooked and shrink and gain uneven sides,

In the blocking process, this is what we do as professionals:
After having a closer look and examining your rug in detail from every aspect, we can then decide on the best rug blocking procedure and act accordingly to get an insane result and heal the structure and shape of the rug
We take the rug through a special stretching process and we make it even. then its time for our very special liquid solutions
In this stage, we carefully spread the solution and leave it for 48 hours and then we remove the solution through a special process
In the final stage, we take it through a special steaming process and make it flat and regain the shape and original structure of your delicate and precious rug.

Whether you have a new rug or old rug, its a good idea to install high-quality backings to assure your rugs tissue protection.
If something really bad happens to the rug, We put a backing on the rug to protect it from more damage and sow on more plies to complete the damaged area
Double backing for extra rug protection
The way that we add a carpet backing to our client’s delicate and precious rugs is that of a 2 layered system.
On the first layer, the primary backing is a strong tissue textured material that is designed to support and strengthen the overall strength of your rugs tissue, the second layer, however, is designed to act as a barrier against external factors that damage a rug like mold, dirt and other factors.
Why do rug owners add rug backing to their rugs with us?
Adding rug backings to your rug is one of those fields that we have to get technical about and use our experience to add a backing to the rug,
but first, you will have to know why a RUG BACKING is needed after all.
well, the answer lies in the fact that it protects your rug in a way that you can really assure its tissue safety from the backside.
Every day, the rug gets stepped on and might go through some normal daily tears and roughness.
Although the tissues of handmade silk rugs have high endurance, it’s always better to keep it protected.
Many rugs just don’t have the type of backing that is designed to last long or to protect a rug as it should.
SO if you want to protect your rug from daily use, mold and water, call us today to give you a consultation on rug and carpet backing.
As the months go by after you buy a delicate rug, over normal wear and tear and normal use of rugs(very rare), the knotting of the rug may unravel from the fringed area and the knottings will start to loosen from their original tight and fixed positionings.
*Well you might ask what’s the solution then?
Double hand knotting is the solution!
By using wool silk and cotton depending on the situation.
In this process, our artisans use their high professional hand-knotting skills and by using quality strings and original materials, they double hand knot those areas, this pushes back the loose knots into place and prevents them from loosening again and moving from their original spots.
