Before & After Photos: Dog-Chewed Damage on a Fine Persian Area Rug!

Hey there folks, Ruthie with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care here in Prescott AZ and I wanted to take a minute and share a repair that we did for our clients.  Our client has had this rug in her home for a number of years but recently she noticed that her dog had been chewing on it and left a big ‘hole’ in the side of the rug!

The puppy certainly got into a heap of trouble and our client was pretty worried about the state of her rug - could anything be done to fix it?  It was a fine Persian area rug that she had enjoyed for years and wanted to continue to enjoy, she certainly didn’t want it to be ruined!

We took her rug to the experts in our repair shop and they performed what is called a “patch” fix.  A swatch from a similar-looking area rug was taken and sewn into the original rug. Special dye markers were used to blend the new piece into the original to help hide the differences.  We thought it turned out pretty spot-on and was a cheaper alternative to completely rebuilding that part of the rug. Our client loved how it turned out too!
