Hand-processing of oriental rugs is what makes the difference between O.K. results and great results! This is a picture of my son Matthew, from about a year and half ago. When I took this picture he was shorter than me – now he’s four inches taller! I love the time he spends with me working on rugs! Fringe oftentimes needs individualized attention, both as part of the main wash process, and as a last step in the final preparation of the rug. Do not trust your rugs to someone who is going to “surface clean” with their regular carpet cleaning equipment – the results from that type of approach will always be disappointing. Fringes should be clean, but not bleached! The original color of the fringe should remain the same! If you have any questions about your particular rug, we are always happy to visit with you about them.
