Fringes can be damaged by vacuums, pets and general foot-traffic. They can also be permanently damaged by over-zealous rug and carpet cleaners who attempt to whiten them by using harsh bleaches. The level of damage and quality of a rug will determine the repair work that is needed on a rugs’ fringe.
Securing a fringe is, as with so many aspects of rug care, an example of ‘a stitch in time saves nine’. The fringe of a rug will often gain a little wear at parts which causes it to start to unravel, spotting this early and having it repaired will prevent any further damage and costly repairs. It is a fairly quick an inexpensive repair and is something that you should keep an eye on and aim to have done every so often to keep you rug in top condition.

If you do not wish to lose a couple of rows of knots there is the option to have new fringes woven into the rug. This involves intricate work where each individual strand of fringe is interwoven and locked a couple of inches into the rugs’ pile and out the end which allows a longer fringe to be created (even if the rug only originally had a short fringe). Carrying out this repair means that even if parts of an original fringe have worn away the pile of the carpet does not need to be lost. This is for rugs that in repairing by removing knots would disturb its appearance, effecting its border; or for more valuable rugs which are perhaps investment quality and you would like to keep in as original condition as possible. By nature this is extremely intricate and time-consuming work and therefore can be more expensive however the results are well worth it.

Further to adding new fringes, it is possible to restore some rows of knots that have been lost due to fringe damage. Adding on a longer fringe then re-weaving lost knots before securing the fringe to bring the rug back to its original appearance. The colour, age and type of wool will determine how close a colour match can be achieved while re-knotting. Again, this is even more time consuming work than adding new fringes from within the rug’s pile and is reserved normally for high-end rugs or rugs which have so much damage that they need additional pile to be re-knotted to maintain the carpet’s appeal.
