A rug can have many types and forms of repair issues. Color run for example, can lead up to structural damages and rug repair. For every type of problem there is a unique approach and intervention.
Color run can be caused by many mishaps and unfortunately it is very common! It causes major damage to valuable area rugs and requires the experts of RevitaRUGS to fix and repair!
If rug repair and restoration was a food chain, fixing a color run would be on the top! The people around the world that can truly fix a color run from a Tabriz or a handmade Silk are probably limited to a hand few!
Color run in simple term is when the darker colors of a rug bleeds into the lighter areas and cause damage. This happens when the rug is wet or exposed to moisture. The following are some common causes:
From Orientals to antique silks and very intricate Persian rugs, RevitaRUGS know the origin, wool or silk type, dye and age of each rug in such great detail. Every rug takes a special and unique process to remove the color run. Too often we receive beautiful rugs for a routine wash and we find it covered with acrylic or similar paint as a mean to mask and fix color run or a stain! An unfortunate discovery that unveils when we wash the rug and residues of dried-up paint separates only to expose the original problem. Sadly, in some cases the chemicals from the paint has already damaged the fibers; caused structural damages and rug requires major repair! A blasphemy!
