Re-sizing Existing Rugs
Have a favorite rug that doesn’t fit in your new space? We can make it fit.
Found a really hip rug that doesn’t come in a big enough size? We can put two or more together.
Have an old rug with permanent stains? Surgery may save it.
Left – This Oriental style rug had multiple permanent stains in the cream border. The rug owner had decided to discard it.
Right – The rug after removing the damaged border. The ‘new’ rug is finished and ready for another life.
If you have a room that is longer or shorter than the ‘rectangle’ that is the most common shape for pre-existing area rugs, we can help.
Rather than removing one end and leaving an unbalanced pattern, we took the center out of this rug.
It is now ‘custom-fit’ to the room.
The major elements of the rug pattern are carefully aligned. In this case the rug seam will be hand-sewn to ensure that alignment stays true and to make a seam that will last for the life of the rug.
