Fringe Repairs

Rug Fringe Replacement

Regular vacuuming of an Oriental rug with an electric vacuum cleaner is good for the rug. Without regular vacuuming, dirt on the surface of the rug will filter down into the pile where it can accumulate and cause increased wear. That being said, it's imperative to be careful with a cleaner equipped with a power brush or beater bars. The brushes within a vacuum do a good job on machine-made carpeting, but they can wreak havoc on the top layer of an Oriental rug's pile and fringe.

If your vacuum cleaner has a power brush, use it only occasionally and lightly on your Oriental rug. For routine cleaning, use just the plain vacuum nozzle. This is especially important for fringes; try not to run an upright vacuum or a power brush attachment over fringes. The brush shreds the fringes and causes rapid wear. Frequently fringes get caught and chewed up by the rotating mechanism of the brush.

Here's a video of an overcast stitch being applied to a rug. This method includes sewing the edges of the rug to salvage its original fringing and to prevent further wear. The overcast stitch will preserve your rugs strength and stop it from unweaving. Overcast stitching is often used on handmade Oriental Rugs.
