Regarding the delicate art of cleaning silk rugs, expertise and precision are paramount. Silk is an incredibly delicate material that demands special care during cleaning, mainly because water and machinery can damage its fine fibers.
At Margaret's, we specialize in traditionally hand-cleaning silk carpets, rugs, and runners. Our expert cleaners carefully massage the delicate silk fibers using only the gentlest cleaners and soft-bristled brushes.
Whether your rug is made purely of silk or is a blend of silk and wool, like some Persian or Turkish rugs, we employ traditional methods, always eschewing machinery in favor of hand cleaning. This meticulous process guarantees that the shimmer in the silk fibers of your rug is beautifully restored.
Whether it's a Persian Qum or a beautiful silk Hereke prayer rug, you can trust Margaret's experts to deliver the finest results. Advice is always free of charge. Please contact us to help you find the best course of action today!
The Beauty of Silk Rugs
Silk rugs are often considered the epitome of luxury and craftsmanship in carpets. The material is among the most expensive used by carpet weavers, often employed to highlight unique design elements in intricately woven rugs.
However, several rugs, hailing from regions like Kashan, Qum, Nain, and Isfahan in Persia, as well as Istanbul and Turkey, are woven entirely from silk. Despite their beauty, silk rugs are incredibly delicate and require specialized care to maintain their grandeur.
Often, these rugs are heirlooms, passed down through generations, adding beauty and a sense of history and familial continuity to a home. With intricate patterns and vibrant hues, these silk masterpieces hold cultural significance and artistic value.
Given their irreplaceable nature and the sentiment they carry, it is essential to focus on their long-term preservation, which makes the need for professional cleaning services like those offered by Margaret's even more crucial.
If you are looking for professional cleaning solutions for your silk rug, whether it's an age-old family heirloom or a newly acquired piece, our team of expert cleaners at Margaret's is here to assist you. We are just a call away from helping you maintain the beauty and integrity of your treasured silk rug.
Did You Know Silk Rugs Are Likely To Get Damaged
Silk rugs, while luxurious, are prone to a variety of damages that may compromise their beauty and integrity. Environmental factors like improperly ventilated rooms, broken HVAC systems, or even natural phenomena like home flooding can lead to mold growth.
Damage occurs gradually and often in hard-to-notice areas, eventually spreading across the rug's entire surface. Sun exposure can also cause colors and designs to fade. Accidental spills and pet-related incidents can also inflict irreversible harm on these precious rugs.
Additionally, prolonged exposure to high foot traffic areas can lead to premature wear and tear on silk rugs, especially in busy households or commercial spaces. The delicate nature of silk fibers makes them susceptible to abrasion, causing the rug's texture to lose luster. Lastly, improper cleaning procedures and products can further deteriorate the silk's quality.
At Margaret’s Couture Cleaners, we’re intimately familiar with high-end materials, like silk rugs, and how they can be stained and damaged. We’re also highly experienced in restoring them to their original luster. So, if your rug has been damaged, don’t count it out yet. Contact our team, and we can look at your rug to help you decide the best course of action.

Valentino Handbag #3
Description of Services: A Rodeo Valentino boutique’s heartbroken client brought into their store what was a brand-new purse that she had recently purchased from them. This beautiful lambskin bag with contrasting quilted stitching and studded accents was destroyed (or so they all thought) by a large hand sanitizer spill. The client was going to throw it away...until they recommended Margaret’s Cleaners. They had learned over the years if there was any chance of successful cleaning or repairs of high-end items, Margaret’s is the only place to go.
"Margaret’s did not disappoint them! When it was delivered back to the store the employees raved! Here are some of the comments we heard... “Blown away” ... “An amazing save” ... “Truly astonishing” ... “Looks new again” ... “As though damage never happened” ... “Absolutely spectacular work!”
"Margaret’s is hands down, THE BEST!”
— The staff at the Rodeo
UPS just delivered my second Prada handbag to be cleaned by your business. I can't tell you how impressed I am by the beautiful results! The woman that called to tell me it was being shipped was so helpful and thorough. She was delightful and really went out of her way with customer service.
Though I live the majority of the time in Denver, I will always make a point of using your business whenever I am staying at our second home in La Jolla. Thank you!

No one in Tucson could clean my bag and have any confidence in the results. I found Margaret's on the internet. Thank you for the wonderful job that you did on my handbag. It looks better than new! I'm giving your information to my local dry cleaner as they are very interested in being able to refer clients to you who have similar problems as mine.

I was not able to find someone locally [to fix my purse]. I did an internet search and based on your website and prompt response to my email, determined that your company was probably the best! I was very pleased with how everything was handled. In today's world, it is wonderful to find a company with ""old world"" values. Thank you so much!
