If the skeleton” onto which the design is woven is not constructed properly, the repair will be obvious and devalued the value of the rug. The second step is to reweave the area to match as the rug was originally woven. At this stage our master weaver matches the color of the wool precisely to original colors. Then, the area is shaved down to match the pile height of the rest of the oriental rug.
MOTH DAMAGE REPAIR
Moth damages in oriental rug is to the wool pile as moth likes to consume organic vegetable dyed wool. Since the foundations of most rugs are cotton or silk, therefore the cost of repair is relatively less. Our experience weavers recreate the pile to original condition and restore it to initial beauty.

Over time, rugs can become worn and frayed. Our experienced repair department can hand wrap yarn to the edge of your rug to extend the life of your rug.
HAND END REPAIR
Stitching applied by hand, which prevents the ends from unraveling, is the most natural way of securing the ends of your rug.

REWEAVING & PATCHING
When rugs become damaged from an unfortunate event, such as a pet chewing a hole, we have the ability to reweave your rug. In some cases, reweaving is not the only option. We can also patch your rug using Oriental rug material that we have available.
BINDING & SERGING
Woven Passion uses the finest materials available when binding and serging rugs. When binding a rug, we first reinforce the edge with a tape and latex strip for greater durability, then we color match the binding tape from our wide selection of widths and colors, and finally sew the tape to the rug with our specialized machine for a finished edge. Serging is another popular way to finish a rug or carpet. This process involves continuously wrapping the rug edge with yarn for a secure and durable finish. We typically use wool or cotton, available in a wide variety of colors. Every rug edge is reinforced prior to serging for a long-lasting, beautiful finish.
