Carpet straightening (for handmade carpets)
Majority of handmade carpets are not 100% straight when they cut them from the weaving loom. Once they are washed or used for long time, you might find irregularities in sizes or angles.
For carpet straightening we use a stainless-steel stand with griping jaws in two sides and griping hooks for the other 2 sides. The carpet is in upside down position)
Once all 4 angles are gripped, a rotating gear will pull one of the jaws and stretches the carpet. Meanwhile a mixture of gum tragacanth blended with warm water is sprayed to the back side of the carpet to ease the process by softening the base of the carpet.
