The Artisans of the Loom is your first hand access to area rug cleaning and repairs in New York. We've been providing our services to auction houses and museums for many years and charging the public the same rates. In fact, the companies with the best ratings by consumer reports for antique oriental rug cleaning and restoration have been handing the job over to The Artisans of the Loom and charging their customers for a hefty profit.
At the Artisans of the Loom, we treat every handmade area rug individually by examining its style (knotted carpet, kilim, French Savonnerie, Aubusson, Tapestry), origin (Turkish, Persian, Chinese, Indian, Caucasian, Moraccan, etc), material (wool, silk, cotton etc.), dyes (natural vegetable, artificial chemical), age (new, antique) and condition. Cleaning is done by hand as should be to avoid the risk of wear and color runs. A handmade rug is meant to last for centuries and we'll try and make sure it does.
