RUG REPAIR – 7th April 2022

This has been a very good experience from start to finish. The rugs were collected on the day arranged , followed by a discussion with the experts by phone talking through the condition of each rug , where it was made , likely value , and cost of treatments , and estimate of time needed to effect repairs and treatment. The rugs were delivered within the time frame estimated and on the day that was agreed. The repair work was superb and the colours , after cleaning , are simply stunning.

MOTH DAMAGED RUG – September 2021

I was devastated when a very precious rug of mine was badly moth damaged while in storage. Max, Andrew and the rest of the team at James Barclay Rugs have done the most beautiful job bringing it back to life, and have really gone above and beyond. I’m so, so happy that this rug will now be able to continue its life for decades more to come. Thank you so much to all of the team who worked on it.

Amazing service from James Barclay. They efficiently picked up my Gabbah Rugs. Organised for them to be cleaned and repaired. Gave us a date to return the rugs. The service was efficient and friendly. The rugs have been beautifully cleaned and repaired. They look wonderful now that they are back. I really recommend this company if you need any work doing to your rugs.

I decided to use Barclays after years of deliberating about having my rugs mended and cleaned. I should have not delayed as they were pretty shabby when Barclays came to assess them. The whole service has been beyond reproach from start to finish. Arriving on time, expertly assessing the damage and what needed to be done. Removing them. Phoning me the next day with a complete breakdown of cost and work. Everything was explained to me on site about moth damage to one particular rug, my delay! This has now been beautifully transformed by expertly reducing on both sides the damaged area. I was told on the spot that to attempt to mend the moth eaten area would be so costly I may as well buy a new rug but what they recommended has meant I have a brand new slimmer version. My other rugs, I had five in total, are beautifully enhanced by the hand cleaning and mending. I am so delighted with the service I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone seeking a professional service. What is more at the beginning of July when the rugs were removed, I was told that the rugs would be returned on the 10th August. I had a call this morning (10th August) and told they would be delivered between 11.00 a1.00pm and there was knock at 11.10am. The rugs were brought in and laid out in the rooms. Exceptional service from first to last with polite professionals at every stage. I’m so happy. Thank you.

Orla Roberts



Excellent from start to finish, they are expensive but worth it. Collected and returned our rugs, and laid them with underlay, having explained exactly what was wrong, did an excellent job of cleaning and repair, the rugs really seemed to glow. Lewis personified the excellence of James Barclay.

Margaret Smart



They were given an impossible task of cleaning a 15 year old Turkish rug that had never been professionally cleaned. I knew some of the staining would be impossible to remove, but when it came back i was amazed at how different it looked, colours and feel were brilliant. Well done James Barclay!

Sally Dolden



Really pleased with the way our Indian carpets have been cleaned & repaired, restoring their original lustre. Customer service was excellent, carpets collected & delivered when stated and work completed at price quoted.

Carolyn Braley



We are absolutely delighted with both the service and the work which has been done with our rugs. James and Luis were extremely helpful when collecting and delivering rugs and gave us a huge amount of information about the history of the rugs and about the way they were originally made and how repair work would be carried out. We really admire their genuine enthusiasm for their work and their desire to educate their customers! We are happy that ‘James Barclay’ has enabled these precious items to be preserved for enjoyment and use by future generations. Thank you.
