Many of our clients have asked us similar queries about the shape of their rugs. Unfortunately, most hand-knotted rugs are not exactly straight, and it is rare to encounter one that is perfectly straight all of the time.
Hi there! Live from Prescott Valley, AZ. It’s Ruthie and Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care.
There haven't been many straight rugs in Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care in Prescott. Instead, I've seen rugs with one side longer than the other and one end wider than the other.
You can also discover rugs with clearly defined curves in their shape. Hand-knotted rugs exhibit their handcrafted origins in various ways, including their flawed forms.
Rugs shrink and expand in unpredictable ways. This item is simply a byproduct of the natural cycle. Cotton rugs distort when they shrink, but wool rugs do not.
Rugs made with flat weaves and needlepoint are very delicate. Cleaning alone causes shrinkage or buckling in varying degrees!
Most badly buckled rugs or rippling can be "blocked," and Arizona Oriental are experts in dealing with this.
When you block a rug, you gradually stretch it out while it dries to give it a similar shape. But, of course, blocking has its limits in terms of how straight your rug can get, and it won't make your rug perfectly straight again.
Naturally, the rug won't be ideal, but we're able to develop a workable solution. A malformed rug cannot be repaired without destroying it.
Blocking a rug isn't a long-term solution, and woven rugs will eventually revert to their original shape.
