Un tout grand merci d'abord pour la rapidité avec laquelle vous nous avez répondu d'autant plus qu'après un quart dâ??heure de travail avec eau et vinaigre (50% de chaque liquide), toutes les taches avaient disparu: miraculeux ! Vous imaginez à quel point nous vous sommes reconnaissants de ce très judicieux conseil: nous ne l'oublierons pas. Bonne nuit et bon week-end. Marc et Isabelle Evrard.

Repair and restoration of oriental carpets, kilims and tapestries.

The rugs consist of natural and therefore perishable materials, which is why deterioration appears to be inevitable, even in the best maintained carpets. The pile wears, the fringes come off, the edges disappear or get loose. Intervention by our restorers is urgently needed. 

If moreover your rug has sentimental value and you want to keep it as a personal souvenir, entrust your rug to us immediately for any repair performed by enthusiastic professionals.


Restoration of holes and tears caused by wear, moths, dogs, burns, etc. on quotation.

First a drawing is made of the pattern where the repair has to be performed. This is done with the aid of coloured circles. Each circle represents one knot in the rug. The circle has the colour of the actual knot in the pattern of the carpet. When this drawing is fully completed, the rug is attached to a sort of small table. Finally we set new threads and weaving can begin.


Repair of fringes, making a stop: from € 55 VAT incl. per running metre.

Method 1:

In this method, a small part of the rug is first unravelled and subsequently a stop is knotted against it to prevent further fraying. In this way, new fringes are made. Finally they are cut to the same length. Here you can personally choose how long the fringes of the rug should be.

Method 2:

There is also the option of sewing in new fringes. We opt for this method if you want to restore the rug to its original state or if in the first instance there were no fringes on the rug.

With this procedure we can shorten the pile and/or remove any sunlight discolouration and return the colour of the rug to its original state. Obviously provided that there is sufficient pile available (it is not currently possible). 

With this technique we can straighten the rug (length or crosswise) or remove creases after water damage or after the rug was exposed to temperature differences combined with moisture. For old rugs too we can apply this technique to remove certain folds. 



Je tiens à dire toute ma satisfaction de l'achat d'un tapis Beloutche chez Mengal Orient et pourtant la tâche n'était pas facile tant le choix était multiple, parmi des tapis plus beaux l'un que l'autre. Grâce à la disponibilité et la compétence de Mr et Mme Claeys-Mengal ce fut chose faite et maintenant ce tapis illumine mon salon.
