The hot weather brings so much joy to so many of us, especially hungry moths who thrive in hot, humid, and dark environments where there is little cross circulation. If you store your wool sweaters in a closet or wardrobe, now is a good time to take them out to inspect them. If you store your rugs in a dark closet, we would recommend an immediate inspection. Even if you do not store your rug but have it out in the living room, perhaps a section of it has a heavy peace of furniture on it or is under a sofa. Moths can damage those sections if left undisturbed.
Many clients reach out when they suspect but are not certain of moth damage. The photo above shows what advanced moth damage looks like. Moths ate entire little areas of wool pile as a section of the rug was left under furniture undisturbed for an extended period of time. --www.traditionalrugrepair.com

We hope that you and your families are healthy and safe during this incredibly challenging time. As we transition to our newly emerging normal, we remain grateful to those who have helped heal us, support us, and provide for us in the fight against something that has robbed us of so many. Our indebtedness to them is immeasurable.
Like so many businesses around the world, we have been temporarily closed in an effort to help control the spread of Covid19. We remain hopeful that after lockdown ends, we will reopen in a way that keeps our customers and our team as safe as possible. We are currently developing procedures and protocols to that end.
In the meantime, we will begin weekly blogs to share some past projects and our musings on all things rug related. We hope those that love textiles as much as we do will enjoy seeing how even the most damaged of rugs or cecims can be brought back to life for generations with just a little care and time.
