Peruvian Kilim belonging to the years of 1920 to 1930

This Kilim , made from Lama woolen fibers (South American camel), is woven with unique technique, designs and drawings which are taken from Asian and Middle East kilims. These kilims are commonly used as coverlets .

From point of quality view, Lama’s fibers are finer and tinier than sheep wools . They are not smeared with any kind of wool fat (lanolin-existing animal fat on the sheep skins).

Using pairs and parallel wraps and woofs which are woven as clothes, is the applying method and technique in Peruvian Kilims. Its designs and drawings are created by weaving the colored woofs between cream colored wraps. This weaving technique is the same as technique that is applied in weaving Mexican Poncho and it is also similar to Iranian Jajim .

Cleaning the strewing color caused by dog’s urine (chines hand woven rugs)

Dog’s urine includes harmful chemical compounds for rugs. It mixes up the rug’s color compounds; moreover causes the rug’s wraps and woofs lose their elasticity and become very hard and stiff which cause the rug to be broken and pierced by any pressure.

As illustrated, on the part of the rug containing cream and red colors, there is strewing color be cause of existing chemical substances in dog’s urine. We succeeded to clean it completely from the rug by the chemical compounds which are made by experienced skillful.

In this case, cleaning the spots is very important but removing the chemical substances, existing in dog’s urine, is more important than that and protecting the elasticity and preventing the warps and woofs from the cracking up and chafing as well.

Repairing the ripped or torn Birjand Mood rugs

Sewing  the warps to gether  is not used in this method, but the warps are woven in new warps by knots and it is woven row by row by using old wool and yarns which are prepared from old Kilims. The wefts and yarns are passed through the warps from left to right and vise versa. By using this method, there will not be remained any trace of the repairing. Using old yarns and applying cutoff yarns and wefts weaving method with new yarns make improving repair in high level.This method needs more time for repairing, but the quality is remarkable and recognizing the repaired parts is very difficult.

Explanation about Birjand Mood rug:

The rugs of this area are very fine and nice with high number of rows and in crimson, cream and orange colors. The Birjand’s designs are often Reez Mahi (tinny fish), Boteh Jegheh and the vertical patterns of Lachak and Toranj.

Learn the proper rugs cleaning

Below you see a type of carpet and rug  washed by the customer getting the expensive carpet and rug  spoiled, stained, and run. In order to safely wash a carpet, a person   requires rich experience and high knowledge of identifying a variety of colors and chemical detergents for cleaning. Actually, while washing a carpet, we should take into account the specific method for the type of carpet at hand on the basis of the kind of its color, material, fibers and wool. On account of these reasons, it is better to assign this specialized work to an expert of this field. In so doing, not only is your carpet completely washed and beautified but it can also be kept safe from any damage to the material and dyes of carpet fibers.

Here as you see, there is a sample of a carpet  and rug that a customer has tried to do its washing and cleaning. In fact, this action has unfortunately caused severe color run all over the carpet. However, having rich experience and knowledge in this regard, we made an attempt to remove this damage costing too much and taking time. At the central part and Toranj of the carpet, we could successfully clean the dye bleeding area to 90%.

After

When washing a carpet and rug , you should meticulously observe the following crucial points:

  1. Try to wash the carpet  and rug just with cool water because hot water makes the dyes of fibers and wool be dissolved and run to other parts of the carpet.
  2. Try to quickly get water out of the carpet  and rug after washing it with the neutral PH detergents because in case of staying water inside the carpet, it goes into the side edges of the carpet and causes dye bleeding of fibers at this area.
  3. Do not dry the carpet  and rug in the sunlight because the sun heat as another damaging factor dissolves the fiber dyes in the water existing inside the carpet and this causes to form colorful stains on the carpet. After washing the carpet, place it on a smooth surface to allow for air circulation. This action indeed gets the carpet really dry and prevents carpet creasing too. In order to facilitate the action of drying, you can put a fan near the carpet to blow the air directing towards two sides, on the carpet and under it or even you can lift a corner of the carpet and use the fan to blow under the carpet.

It should be noted once more that if you have a carpet and rug, you had better give it to an experienced carpet washer rather than wash it yourself; because based on my experience working with carpet cleaning services, carpet dye bleeding is considered to be one of the major irremediable damages to the carpet.
