which are all made-to-measure and cut-to-size for each individual rug, carpet or tapestry, when the order is placed with us here at Magic Hand Ltd. Please note, therefore, these services are non-refundable and non-returnable, once the order is in progress or has been undertaken.
ANTI-SLIP RUG UNDERLAY SERVICE
We stock and supply to order a best quality, durable anti-slip rug underlay to protect and cushion the weave foundation (underside) of your kilim, rug or oriental carpet, while ensuring a secure hold to any surface. Made of modern materials in its construction, this underlay product carries the 'Confidence in Textiles' Certification, which ensures is can be used safely on smooth or hard flooring surfaces such as: wood, stone, marble, tiles, laminates and textile flooring surfaces such as: vinyl and fitted carpet, as well as being suitable to use with under-floor heating systems.
Unlike older varieties of underlay, which overtime and with prolonged use, may disintegrate or thin out quickly, our professional anti-slip rug underlay product utilises a micro-fibre finish to ensure it grips securely, while cushioning and protecting your weavings. Ultimately, this prevents kilims, rugs and oriental carpets from rucking, creeping, slippage or creases and ridges forming.
Our underlay is cut-to-size for each individual kilim, rug or oriental carpet here at Magic Hand Ltd, which may come as one or more pieces – depending on the size required. This durable underlay is easy to fit and lay out at home, under your piece. It also has the added bonus of being machine washable making it infinitely re-useable, with a longevity of use.
Please contact us to discuss your underlay requirements and the costings for the piece, where Conditions and Terms of Business apply, once purchased.
RUG AND TAPESTRY WALL HANGING TECHNIQUE SERVICE
For pieces 'too fragile' to lay on the floor for example: tapestries, silk weavings and antique or rare pieces, we provide an ingenious, durable and concealed wall hanging technique originally devised by Magic Hand Ltd’s Senior Master Rug Craftsman, where works can be undertaken for any type of rug, tapestry or textile in any size.
Once in place, your piece will lie flush to the wall, when mounted on either picture hooks or screws (not supplied) secured to a wall. Alternatively, should you decide to lay your rug, tapestry or textile to view on the floor, the hanging rail can be easily removed from its secure casing and the piece will lie flat on any floor surface.
We will carefully assess the size, weight and condition of each individual piece requested for our hanging technique service, prior to any work being undertaken, to ensure it can be properly and evenly supported and conserved by the hanging apparatus, and relay the costings for works.
We are happy to discuss your rug wall hanging requirements, so please contact us for more information.
