Our knowledgeable team can arrange for a sensitive restoration with treatments tailored to the precise needs of your rug. 

Antique rug damage that can be treated by our expert team includes, but is not limited to:

  • Bleeding or running dyes following water damage
  • Deterioration due to old age or wear 
  • Pest damage from moths and other insects or rodents
  • Professional removal of smoke, dust or contamination build-up
  • Fraying, hole and tear damage 
  • Advice and recommendations on UV protection to prevent fading
  • Professional cleaning following stains and accidental damage


We have experience in textile restoration from a wide variety of historical eras and styles, including the knowledge of how to approach delicate and deteriorating elements of a rug or carpet. This includes the many materials they may encounter, including:

  • Silk
  • Wool 
  • Cotton
  • Animal skins such as cowhides, sheepskin, bearskin and reindeer
  • Faux fur
  • Synthetic textiles in modern and contemporary reproductions

Antique rugs may also have complex dye techniques which have been used for centuries – including vegetable dyes and natural colours which are prone to fading or disturbances over time. These require specialist treatments to prevent further damage from harsh household chemicals or industrial dry cleaning methods.
