Tapestries

We offer two tapestry services.

A faster and more affordable option using an upright loom and a polypropylene support, which has been used by the managing director for over 50 years. 

We also offer a more traditional method on a horizontal loom, using a linen support and full conservation stitching.

Rugs and Carpets

The Landi Company offers conservation for woven and tufted rugs and carpets, both large and small. This includes re-warping, reinstating missing pile, and lining.

Embroideries

Embroideries, including samplers, can be worked on in our studios, and our services range from wet cleaning, to stitched conservation, to adhesive treatments. Mounting embroideries onto custom-made padded boards is available upon request.
