Do you have a valuable rug that has been damaged? It can be horrifying to discover tears, fading, and other damage, but Azhar’s Oriental Rugs can help reverse the irreversible. We specialize in antique rug restoration, rebinding, repiling, hand insert fringe repair, shearing, color erosion from sun damage, and more. Customers throughout Miami, FL, and Coral gables, FL, have turned to us for professional rug restorations for many years because it actually works!
Rugs can become damaged from time to time, even your fine, heirloom antique Persian rugs, hand-knotted Oriental rugs, Persian silk rugs, modern and contemporary rugs, and Kilims. Your fine rugs, like your best clothing, deserve gentle professional cleanings. Harsh treatments and the use of caustic chemicals can make them worse and even ruin their value.
Thankfully, Azhar’s Oriental Rugs offers the most professional, dedicated, and affordable workmanship when repairing fine rugs like a Hereke silk rug and other fine rugs and carpets. Our work is so reliable that many of our customers can’t even identify where the damage occurred, nor can they spot the difference between our weaver’s repair weaves and the original rug’s appearance.
From reknotting rugs to dyeing materials like silk and wool to match their surroundings, our expert treatments can restore beautiful fabrics like fine Persian wool-on-wool and Persian wool-on-silk rugs to their original beauty. We have been restoring antique and heirloom rugs for the last 45 years.
We can reverse migrated coloring, or dyes running over a rug, and even sun damage (areas where UV rays have broken down fibers and deteriorated rich dyes).
Rugs that experience frequent foot traffic can become damaged and start to look deteriorated. They’ll need a process called repiling. This is a repair technique by which our experts recreate a replica of the original design and weave and knot it into the original rug, restoring it to its original glory. Then, they dye the fabric and hand-tie each Persian or Turkish knot to match. Next, our experts will shear silk or wool to the exact pile length, a process that has been effective on very old, antique rugs. Antique rug repiling can make rugs that are hundreds of years old look brand new again!

Children and pets can rip or chew on rug fibers. When this happens, they’ll need reweaving. This intricate process reconstructs the original foundation of the rug, which consists of a warp and weft. This foundation holds the knots in place and creates a flat surface under the rug. Our skilled professional reweaving teams can use the same material that was used to create the original rug foundation, like cotton or silk, and secure it to the original foundation. Then, our team will finely re-knot the rug in the damaged area, matching the quality and style of knot used throughout.

Aggressive vacuuming, foot traffic, and pet damage can damage the fringes of your rugs, which provide it with an elegant and detailed border. However, fringes are also necessary for protecting the knots within the rug. If you have an elegant rug with damaged fringes, bring it to our rug repair team immediately, before knots begin to unravel and more extensive damage becomes visible.
Please don’t attempt to refringe your own rugs or put machine made fringes on handknotted rugs. This can dramatically reduce the value of your pricey handknotted rugs. Azhar’s Oriental Rugs staffs a professional team with over 45 years of experience installing various types of rug fringes, and are able to not only repair your rug, but also match the original fringe pattern so the preexisting damage is not visible.
Please see videos demonstrating the process of refringing very fine silk on silk Persian Qum rugs.
Vacuums, home steam cleaners, and general negligence can damage the unfringed sides of rugs, also known as binding. If you have a rug that needs rebinding, we can restore it for you, whether you have a Persian wool rug, Hereke silk rug, contemporary rug, or virtually any other type of area rug. We can restore the original look of the rug before the exposed binding worsens and knots become damaged.
Please see videos demonstrating the process of rebinding.
Believe it or not, the dyes in your rugs can migrate onto other colors. Known as color run, this can make your rug look stained and make its colorful pattern look haphazard. If rugs are exposed to water damage, wet footprints, ink, dyes, or clumsy washing, color run is commonly the result.
Azhar’s Oriental Rugs professionally reverses color run and restores the rug’s original pattern.
UV rays don’t just damage your skin, they also damage your rugs – especially rugs made of organic fibers like wool. Dyes will fade, materials can degrade, and the rug will lose its rich, brilliant appearance. Thankfully, this process can be reversed, but only by a professional. Our restoration team can reverse the fading and stains caused by sun damage, so your area rugs look good-as-new again.
Only entrust your rugs to true professionals. Unskilled or at-home treatments can make damage worse, and machine repairs not done by hand can make the value of your rug plummet.
