BEFORE & AFTER PHOTOS: Have an Old Braided Rug That’s Falling Apart?


Hey there, folks!  Ruthie here with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care in Prescott AZ and today I thought I would share some of my favorite rugs with you all - handmade rugs!  They have so much character in them and they showcase a very important part of your family. If they’re well taken care of and well-made, they truly can last for generations!

While braided rugs are some of my favorites in this category, they also tend to show their age in some unfortunate ways.  Over time, the threads holding them together can break and cause the rug to unravel. I’ve included a couple of pictures below of one of our client’s own braided rugs that had this happening.

As I always remind my clients and my readers, it’s never a good idea to leave rugs in a state of disrepair!  The damages will only worsen over time and end up being much more expensive in the long run!  We here at Arizona Oriental have a wonderful repair shop that does wonders on any rug with damages.

This photo shows the EXACT SAME RUG AS ABOVE after it got a good cleaning and repair.  It looks brand new, doesn’t it!? Grandma sure would be proud of how her family has taken care of the rugs that she made all those years ago.  Now this rug can be enjoyed for even more years to come!

Till next time, enjoy your beautiful art for your floor and remember a clean rug is a rug that can last you a lifetime!
