Fringe is the skeleton of your rug. Most rugs have white cotton fringe tassels, and others have wool or silk tassels. Some rug owners like the look of the fringe on their rugs, others find it frustrating to always be straightening them, or keeping them from getting caught in the vacuum cleaner (that is why you vacuum from side to side instead of from end to end).
But, the fringe is not just a pretty way to finish the rug , it is actually the foundation fibres of the rug. The rugs skeleton. Each individual tassel that you grab in your hand runs through the middle of the rug all the way to the other end, emerging as another individual tassel on the opposite end.
If you don't like how it looks, we can safely hide it underneath the rug, without compromising the rug's integrity.
We are sorry to hear that your rug is in trouble, please call us and let's get it fixed straight away.
