The fringes, the pipings as well as the rug’s edges, strips, seams and substrate, are the most “sensitive” points on the rugs. With the passing of time and maintenance, flicking but also from extensive use, rugs can weaken, open and wear out. So if they have the predisposition, they may show some signs of attrition and start to pluck or spread on the edges. This doesn’t mean that the rug is completely damaged but needs to be repaired or restored.
They also wear out or deteriorate more quickly when the doors knock on the fringes – rails or are more often used by being pressed on specific parts.
The same is observed on the pile of the rug when there is heavy furniture, and the use is more frequent or intense.
