The Origins of Needlepoint and Aubusson Rugs
These rugs date back to the time of the Egyptians. The process of hand-stitching threads together has significantly evolved throughout the centuries, and thread embroidery through open-weave canvases was used in France and England for creating rugs and other items used to decorate homes.
Needlepoint rugs were created to mimic and reproduce the style of the beautiful Turkish cultural designs. These rugs are covered in soft colors, lots of gorgeous flowery designs as well as a number of other similar design elements. These spectacular details and gorgeous designs need to be restored and preserved for many more years to come, which is why our Aubusson rug cleaning jobs are always done professionally with minimum damage.
Aubusson rugs are similar to needlepoint rugs and they are also comprised of vertical and horizontal threads weaved together to create precise images and patterns. These rugs have a French influence as well and they are named after the town Aubusson, located about 200 miles away from Paris, France. The Aubusson River was used for washing the fabrics needed to weave these rugs starting with the 17th century.
Aubusson rugs are usually covered in eye-catching color patterns and they are expensive to buy. They are also completed with symmetrical knots and the designs and w have often times been asked to clean Aubusson rugs that are covered in floral patterns, as well as military and architectural depictions.

Aubusson Rug Cleaners: Regular Maintenance Solutions
Vacuuming a needlepoint or an Aubusson rug regularly will help keep the wear-and-tear and the structural damage to a minimum. Give us a call, schedule periodical maintenance cleaning jobs with us and allow us to come over and have all the grit, dust, pollen, and dirt removed from deep within the rug’s fibers. This way, pile, fibers and overall foundation of your rug will be better protected in the long term.
Our technicians who specialize in Aubusson rug cleaning know to only use vacuum suction and steer clear from beater bars and brush attachments that could cause severe damage to a rug. This is because a beater bar will roll over the fibers and begin pulling them, thus removing parts of the fibers and triggering the so-called fraying phenomenon. This will eventually lead to the complete destruction of a rug.
