TAKE A FRESH LOOK AT YOUR CARPET… IT’S VALUE!

As we entrust to the expert hands of a cabinet maker an antique furniture, a carpet of artists, Orient, Iran, silk, wool, Kilim of Anatolia … can be restored, renovated, cleaned, if the work is done by a professional.

From its origin, patterns, materials, pigments, frames and knots, David Fitoussi knows all the subtleties. Since 1962, his family is at the head of the Carpet Clinic. By taking over the head of this family business, he wanted to perpetuate this knowledge of the art of carpets with a special focus on their restoration. Passionate with carpets, the symbolism of their motives, the beauty of their colors, David Fitoussi works with Frank Kassapian, an international expert.

Rejuvenate in 5 steps:

Step 1: the expertise of the carpet is a preliminary step and necessary to estimate its value and the cost of restoration.

Step 2: expose the part to be restored by removing the wool or cotton so as to reconstruct the frame and the chain that will support the pattern.

Step 3: recreate the wool colors specific to each carpet with mixtures of plant or mineral pigments, expertly dosed to obtain the exact color in which the virgin wool, silk or cotton thread will be immersed. The color of the wire is then fixed with sodium bicarbonate. And the meticulous work of recreating the pattern can then begin …

Step 4: recreate the lost motif by resuming the point of the carpet. Patience skill counted points to redraw the pattern centimeter by centimeter. An expert work that requires knowledge of weaving techniques specific to the origin of the carpet.

Step 5: cut the reconstructed pattern with scissors to obtain a perfectly leveled surface.

The need to clean
his carpet and his tapestry |

When did you clean your carpet for the last time? It is not a matter of vacuuming, but of cleaning it thoroughly. Once every 22 years! On average, in France, the time we expect to tackle the dust that tarnishes and damages the fibers of a carpet.

It should be offered a cleaning rule every 3 or 5 years.

It is not a simple washing, but several essential steps: the threshing, the possible fixing of the colors, a bath or several, the washing with the help of natural detergents non-aggressive for the fibers, the drying in the open air, then combing the hair.
