Silk rugs are a thing of beauty. With their sheen and luster that they exude, they are known for their delicacy and sophistication. With that comes the higher expense of repair. Silk being such a fine fiber it is certain that these type of rugs generally bring with them a higher cost, but also the need for a highly skilled weaver with a fine eye for detail. Another type of rug repair that is known for its very costly expense and the need for a highly skilled weaver is Navajo rug repair. There are not many weavers that are experienced enough to repair Navajo rugs, which is another reason the cost associated with repairing them tend to be higher.
