Santa Fe Oriental Rug Services

Professional Oriental Rug Cleaning, Repair & Restoration, Appraisals, Custom Made Rugs


Silk Road Collections specializes in producing custom, hand made Oriental rugs. Choices are available in almost any design imaginable; from traditional patterns to more contemporary designs. Customers can come in with a design of their own or commission a hand knotted museum quality, antique reproduction or a rug with a modern design. Any Oriental rug you see on our website or at the Silk Road Colllections store located in Santa Fe, NM in the Plaza Mercado, can be duplicated and reproduced in any size or color.

We do not charge extra for special orders if it's based on a rug in the shop. If a customer wants us to produce a custom design rug of their own, then there would be extra costs involved.

See Custom Design Rugs or Oriental Rugs and Carpets FAQs for more information.


Silk Road Collections is happy to come to your house or place of business to look at your space and make area rug design suggestions. We furnished an entire house in Washington State. We did the material and color design specs, technical drawings (cartoons) of the rugs’ designs, showed the client material (wool, cotton, silk) samples and then shipped the design to our expert weavers overseas. Quality, handmade, natural dye rugs take time to produce. They are woven knot by knot, inch by inch. The rugs were finished and shipped back in one year.

See Custom Made Oriental Rugs or Oriental Rugs and Carpets FAQs for more details.


Although Silk Road Collections specializes in Oriental Rugs, we will do appraisals for all rugs whether they are Navajo Rugs, new or antique rugs. The fee depends on the rug. The cost varies and can run anywhere between $80 - $120.


Silk Road Collections provides the best professional Oriental & Navajo rug cleaning services in Santa Fe, NM using traditional methods. As specialists with a lifetime of experience in dealing with antique rugs, we can appreciate the fact that your Oriental or Navajo rug is a valuable and treasured asset. Handwoven, vintage wool, silk and cotton area rugs need expert care and handling. If not done right, the rug cleaning process can damage the rug backing, fringe or pile.

We hand wash vintage Oriental and Navajo rugs using traditional methods. We use organic soaps and hand dry the rugs with fans. If for any reason you have concerns about your rug cleaning, we will hand wash the rug again free of charge or refund your money.

You have the option to use our rug pickup and delivery service. If you live nearby in the Santa Fe, New Mexico area the service is free.

Our basic charge to clean an average dirty wool rug is $2.50 per square foot. If there are difficult spots and stains, then that will affect the cleaning cost.


Silk Road Collections offers high quality, rug repair and restoration services for any sized antique Oriental rug including Navajo rugs. We utilize our expertise in antique oriental rug appraisals to assess your rug, determine the correct type of repair and make recommendations. Based on our meticulous evaluation process, we choose the materials, colors and techniques needed to ensure a seamless repair and restoration job.

We make all repairs by hand in keeping with traditional methods. We utilize expert rug weavers with the technical mastery needed to maintain the structural integrity and timeless beauty of your rug. We fix damages due to wear and tear, water damage, smoke or cigarette burn damage, pet and insect damage, and severe food or wine spills that can not be remediated with professional cleaning services.

Our restoration services include reinforcment or replacement of rug fringe (cotton, wool, silk) and rug edges. Patching damaged or worn areas of vintage Oriental and Navajo rugs may require re-knotting or flat weaving. This requires precision, experience and extraodinary attention to detail. Restoration can be tricky, especially if the damaged area is part of a complex rug border or field design. Our services also include carpet resizing and cutting, repair of rug backing and more. We also sell rug pads and cut them to the exact size you need.

We are happy to answer all of your questions and take great pride in our service. If you live in the Santa, Fe, NM area, we provide free rug pickup and delivery service. However, we recommend that you come into our shop for consultation to discuss your project. We have been serving satisfied customers in Santa Fe, NM and surrounding area for over 25 years.

We ship free any rug that is $700.00 and up to any state in the country.


Silk Road Collections warranty for organic natural dye oriental rugs is 10 years for fading and bleeding. If you buy a chemical dyed, commercial quality rug, thats a different story.

Just a note to say "thanks" for the great rug that I purchased from you during the holidays. I found some clips that have plastic inserts so they do not damage the rug and I hung it in my office. I've also started reading about Persian rugs and I'm having a lot of fun going to estate sales in L.A. and checking out the bargains. Thanks again for making our trip so much fun.

While visiting Santa Fe, my wife and I bought a small Turkman rug in your gallery. It arrived today. The new fringe looks great, and the mat makes a big difference. Thank you. It's beautiful.

Peter H. Pawlowicz

Thank you so much for the runner. It goes with the hassock you so extremely kindly gave me last year. It also perfectly fits a traffic pattern in my house. It's lovely.


We wish to thank you for the two beautiful rugs we now have hanging in our house. Also we very much appreciate the prompt response to my request to see more rugs made in Persia. The copy of your rug book and the appraisal arrived also.

Smitty Hoegstett
