Our clothes wear out as they are washed, but contrary to the usual, natural woven carpets become fresher and more beautiful as they are washed.
As Ararat Rugs, we have been providing carpet cleaning services in Japan at a very advanced level for 5 years, we are the leading and most preferred carpet-cleaning company by many customers. For this reason, we wash carpets and rugs of many types; hand-woven, machine-woven, hand-tufted, natural dyed, synthetic-dyed, silk, wool, polyester, cotton, hemp and low and high quality, big size small size, new and antique carpets from different countries all around the world. We have the opportunity to observe their durability. In this way, we encounter new products and techniques every day, and we gain experience with different types of carpets. Therefore, we are touching each of them, learning by washing which contributes to our knowledge and experience. We see that the high-quality material carpets are getting better, but the rest remain at their current status or getting worse.
Our customers also learn about their carpets and rugs and we try to educate our customers with real examples like the yarns and warps, the dyeing and lightfastness and wash-fastness properties of the carpets, etc. Also specific to elder Japanese customers; It is known that natural dyes (Kusakizome) do not last long in silks used for Kimonos in Japan. The common Japanese image is that they are natural, but not very durable and long-lasting. While we are explaining natural dye to our Japanese customers, we provide examples of antique wool carpets to prove that have survived to the present day intact.
