Fringe Cleaning and repair

It’s important to understand that the fringe tassels on hand-woven rugs are integral to the rug’s structure. These tassels are the strands of silk or wool around which pile knots are twisted and tied, forming part of the rug’s skeleton. Consequently, if the fringe becomes dirty or damaged, cleaning and repair can be quite challenging and should be handled by a professional rug cleaner to ensure the best possible results.

In contrast, machine-woven rugs are much easier to clean and repair because the fringe is typically glued on or sewn after the rug is created. These fringes do not form part of the rug’s foundation, so you can simply remove the old, damaged, or dirty fringe and replace it with new fringe.

Regardless of the type of rug, if the fringe cleaning and repair has been chewed off by a pet, torn by a vacuum cleaner, or worn down from heavy foot traffic, it’s crucial to address the issue promptly. Proper care and maintenance are essential to preserving the beauty and longevity of your rug.
