Types of Damage We Can Reweave
- Moth holes
When first noticing an area of damage on your rug, we recommend repairing it as soon as possible to prevent further destruction. Once restored, these works of woven art will live on to be cherished by many instead of being thrown away and disappearing forever.
Does Repair Affect a Rug’s Value?
A common question is whether or not repairing rugs affects their value. A quality repair, using high-quality vegetable-dyed wool and proper technique, will always add to the value of a rug whether it is new or a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. However, when a rug is repaired poorly, using the wrong wool or technique, or is repaired in a way that goes against its original character, rugs will lose value as a result. At Koko Boodakian & Sons you can be assured that your rugs always receive the highest quality repairs.

At Koko Boodakian & Sons, we restore all of our rugs in our warehouse located in Winchester, MA. Our plant is equipped with state-of-the-art, machinery, wool, and tools so that your rug receives the highest quality of treatment.
We require all rugs to be cleaned before being repaired!
Our policy is to ensure the greatest possible results of your rug repair. By having your rug thoroughly cleaned, damaged areas will become more apparent so that we can fix them and deliver your rug back looking its absolute best. This effective measure was also put in place to eliminate the possibility of bringing unwanted, outside pollutants into our repair room.
Three Ways To Have Your Rugs Expertly Repaired By Us
The Different Types of Fringe Repair We Do:
Unraveling ends are usually caused by normal foot traffic over time. We recommend the “Zangera” stitch for thin rugs which not only looks great but completely secures the rug from any further unraveling.
Damaged fringe can be caused by traffic and/or vacuum cleaners. New fringe replaces the damaged fringe and looks better on thicker rugs and better matches their character. The new fringe also completely protects and secures ends from unraveling.
Unraveling sides are usually caused by normal foot traffic over time. We recommend securing the sides that look great and completely prevent the sides from further unraveling.
Protect Your Rugs
The sides and ends are the first lines of your rug’s defense to protect it from unraveling. We recommend having your rugs restored every five to ten years in order to keep them looking great and lasting for generations to come.
