What You Really Need to Know about Your Area Rug’s Fringes – Prescott AZ

What You Really Need to Know about Your Area Rug’s Fringes – Prescott AZ

Love them or hate them, there’s no denying that the fringe is a very essential part of your area rug.  While some believe fringe only adds to the beauty of their area rugs, others think otherwise.  For some, the fringe seems to attract more soil than anywhere else on the rug, and they can also be damaged easily if you aren’t careful.

We’ve seen many rugs with damaged fringes at Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care here in Prescott AZ.  Some culprits to this damage are puppies that like to chew on the fringe and heavy foot traffic.  The biggest cause of fringe damage, however, is vacuums.  Always take caution when you vacuum your area rugs and avoid the fringe as much as possible.

Fringes are an extension of your area rug’s warp threads, which run the length of your rug.  When the weaver has completed a rug, they will finish the ends by knotting them in various designs, creating the fringe and securing your rug.  So as you can see, fringes are a very essential part of your area rug as an extension of your rug’s foundation.  You should NEVER CUT YOUR RUG’S FRINGES OFF because you will compromise the entire rug.

Our repair shop at Arizona Oriental is well equipped to handle all kinds of repairs.  Whether you want to remove the fringe altogether, replace it, or repair it, our repair shop can offer a variety of options.  After inspecting your rug’s fringe, your rug’s needs will be evaluated and we can make recommendations for repair.  Of course, we offer repairs for whatever your rug needs – not just fringes!
