Washed Spanish rug by natural washer (neutral P.H)

This rug is cautiously washed by hands, soft brush and natural washer (neutral P.H) in our working place. Its opened roots are sewn by very narrow yarns and 5 metal rings are sewn among the warps and woofs in order to hang it on the wall. The weaving technique of spanish rug (Andlosia) belonging to 1930 t0 1940 was brought to Europe by the North African barbarians who immigrated to Spain.

The weaving of this type of rugs greatly has kept the originality of the North African desert dwellers’ rugs but its design have been become different and European style is used in it.

One of interesting points in weaving of these rugs which are brought to us for repairing is the method of weaving. Fars knots and Kurdestan-Saneh’s weaving technique has been used in them.

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.
