Antique rugs, even old rugs, are becoming increasingly rare and so, if their condition is good, are ever more valuable. Heirlooms definitely should be looked after, but holiday souvenir rugs, too, can be rescued if accidents happen. And if the disaster is bad enough – a lovely rug can still be reincarnated as beautiful cushions.
