American Braided Rugs; Wow these go way back in American history as flooring cover, used by many to eliminate the coldness of cabin floor and to add beauty to a room. Colonials used scraps of clothing and other excess material and we still find them today in homes.
One issue with older braided rugs is, the cotton thread used to link each loop can dry rot and cause the rug to pull apart. We know that some of these rugs hold great sentimental value to the owner and can't stand the thought of throwing them away once dry rot begins. We have a solution for that, we can repair that rug with a new thread and make it last through more generations of use in your family. Now, when you bring or send us one for repair, we also require that we are allowed to wash the rug so that all those years of dry soils can be removed to ensure the rug itself last as long as the repair.
If you have an American Braided Rug, don't fear, we can clean that rug for you and make the necessary repairs to make it last another generation. With any repair work cost figures, we have to see the rug to determine that and provide you an accurate quote. Besides, we like looking at all the different designs and learning the history behind your rug. Every rug has a story and here at Robin's, we like to hear about them. Until next time, Rugman out!
