Hand made Oriental carpets and rugs are knotted using wools and silks which have been either naturally or synthetically coloured. These dyes, depending on the carpet or rug, can have differing levels of colour-fastness and some may be susceptible to colours bleeding or running into others if exposed to excess water or liquid.
We offer a full colour run correction service for all carpets rugs and runners which have experienced colour bleed. We have the ability and expertise to remove almost any level of colour run – stripping the wools or silks of the offending dyes and returning the piece to its pre-damaged condition.
Most colour run correction is carried out on either Persian or Afghan rugs and the primary offender being the deep red colours that can run into whites or ivory areas creating a light pink colouring. We can easily strip this out of the wools or silks, carefully removing the excess colour.
Our carpet has been passed through three generations of my family and has created my reluctance to have anyone but the best care for it. Tapis-service collected and delivered our carpet to the highest standard.
Tapis-service has been the only company I would use for my carpets and rugs. I have used them for decades and only recommend them.
