Restoration of Textiles  

Is it worth to restore these items?

Why should we invest our money in things that are often in a pretty bad shape?

There are many interpretations of “value” regarding these pieces of furniture.

Actually, on second thought. we are used to restore old damaged paintings, frescos, and sculptures. So, why shouldn't we take action in this field?

Restoration

As a first step, it is important to identify the necessities and the expected results. 

People often think rugs are identified only by their design or fabric quality, but this is not true at all. They are just two components used to identify them but not the only ones. 

Actually, we should also observe the underside and some textile components. 

Thorough research, restoration is carried out into some techniques used to ensure minimum intervention with the structure of your product, and to retain as much of the original textile as possible. The good news is that most significant damage can be halted or reversed.

Each item is examined to assess the level of restoration required, giving consideration to:

  • Country of origin and age
  • Usage
  • Materials used
  • Construction techniques
  • Dyes used
