BEFORE

The client owned a vintage handmade Navajo rug that she had for a long time. It had definitely been used and enjoyed as a rug to walk on. However, she was moving to a new home and wanted to put it on the wall instead. We loved that idea!

AFTER

After all the work, this is the final result. You can hardly tell that there was any problem with it. All the areas had to be custom dyed to match the rug and sewn carefully to give it the proper texture.

A handmade rug repair story

Repairing handmade rugs can be a challenge. Not only does each color that is being repaired have to match or be custom dyed, but the weave must look similar. 

You could see some areas were completely thread bare!

Probably the most challenging area to repair because of being such a large area near the edge.

We can take on just about any kind of rug repair job. Even though we don’t carry Navajo rugs, we can repair them. If you have any rugs that need repairing, please contact us and bring your rug with you so we can give you a proper quote. It should be noted that rug repair work is a serious job and thus isn’t really meant for rugs that you don’t consider to be of great value, as repairs can be costly.  However, for a rug that is valuable or has sentimental value, getting your rugs repaired can be a very worthwhile experience.
