Rug Repurposing at Main Street Oriental Rugs - A Pillow Story

 A customer came into the store with an old Dhuri carpet that had belonged to her grandmother. The rug brought back many childhood memories of fun times at her grandmother’s house. Unfortunately, the rug suffered from one too many pet stains, cleaning was not successful, and repair was cost prohibitive and exceeded the value of the rug. The customer was grateful for our attempts to save the rug and knew it was too far gone to save. Imagine our surprise when a week later friends of the customer returned with the rug, they had saved it from the trash and asked what they could do to save the rug for their friend.  We suggested that we could salvage some parts of the rug and make a throw pillow at a reasonable cost. Our rug repair experts made the pillow and it was given to our customer as a Christmas present by her friends. Now she still has a piece of her Grandmother's rug to remind her of all her good memories.
