Carpet Conservation: Cleaning, Repair, Restoration, and Appraisal
The conservation and restoration services offered by Noure's Oriental Rug provides one of the world's most highly regarded conservation services around. Available to private collectors as well as offering their services to homes, museums, and galleries, this has been a central faction of out services since opening over 30 years ago. We employ the best conservators and weavers, many of whom were trained in Europe, Turkey, Pakistan, India, Afganistan & of course Persia or Iran. They are all fine artists in their own right with a strong intuitive knowledge of colors, textures and composition. Combined with their in-depth conservation experience, our team is outstandingly qualified to handle fine antique carpets and tapestries.
Part of the attraction of rare and exceptional antique & decorative carpets are qualities that they have acquired over time. The enhanced characteristics of the original weaving process - the mellowing of colors over the years, the subtle "abrash" variations of hand-weaving techniques and vegetable dyes, and the textures associated with normal usage over time gives old capret their desireable patina. The goal of Noure's Oriental Rug is to restore a carpet to sound condition while preserving the intrinsic character of a fine work of art. Since insensitive and irresponsible restoration can adversely affect the value of an important piece, our primary concern is to conserve and only to a lesser extent to repair damage, although restoration of lost areas and detail remains an important part of our work.
It is vital that you have your rug cleaned at least once every 5 years if you wish to keep its vibrance and longevity. At Noure's we clean your carpet with the appropriate techniques based on its age and condition. We employ a variety of techniques including: hand washing, machine washing, tumbling, and enzyme treatment among others.
