A tribute to the Persian rug connoisseurs of Canterbury

With a rich history dating back to the Romans and a significant presence during the Norman Conquest, Canterbury, one of the most famous towns in Kent, boasts a unique blend of historic charm and modern sophistication. Known for its stunning cathedral, Canterbury reflects the appreciation for intricate detail and timeless beauty that owners of Persian rugs similarly embrace. This city, with its wealth of heritage, thriving cultural scene, and discerning inhabitants, is indeed a fitting home for the elegance and grandeur of antique Oriental and Persian rugs.

Persian rugs, like the rich tapestry of Canterbury’s history, offer a tale woven over centuries. From the Roman ruins to the medieval architecture of Canterbury Cathedral, the city’s history mirrors the timeless beauty and intricate craftsmanship of these rugs. Just as Canterbury’s heritage buildings are carefully preserved, so too must the intricate designs of these rugs be meticulously maintained.

Understanding the distinct parallel between Canterbury’s love for historical preservation and the need for professional care of these heirloom rugs, our cleaning and repair services are tailored to serve the inhabitants of Canterbury. We appreciate the immense value these rugs hold, both in terms of monetary worth and as treasured artefacts passed down through generations. Our team of experts is equipped to restore and maintain the splendour of your Persian and Oriental rugs, ensuring their longevity for future generations to enjoy.

In the heart of Kent, within the charming historic city of Canterbury, we stand ready to preserve the magnificence of your Persian rugs, mirroring Canterbury’s commitment to retaining its unique cultural heritage and historical charm.

Typical Rug Nurse antique rug cleaning, repair & restoration services

Note: All rugs are expertly cleaned before we undertake any repair in our specialist London workshop. The method we use to clean your rug will also depend on the type of rug you have, and its current condition. For example, a fragile old antique rug will need a gentler approach to cleaning than a newer vintage rug that would benefit from deep-cleaning to remove fixed stains, ground-in grime before repair.
