Berkeley Oriental Rug Cleaning
Talisman has been the #1 rug cleaning company in Berkeley for over 32 years.
Talisman has cleaned a variety of valuable textiles from Berkeley public institutions - including an antique Thai banner for the UC Berkeley Art Museum and area carpets custom designed by former UC Berkeley Art Department head Christopher Brown.
A unique, world-class Oriental rug collection is owned by famed Berkeley architect Christopher Alexander. The founders of Talisman have known Mr. Alexander since the 60's and assisted in cleaning and conserving rugs for his highly praised exhibit at the De Young Museum in 1990 - to coincide with the International Conference on Oriental Rugs. Talisman also prepared the entire collection for shipment when it was eventually transferred to the UK and advised Mr. Alexander on proper storage.
When Talisman began in 1980, one of our first clients was Emmett Eiland Oriental Rug Company in Berkeley - which was then located just off upper Solano Ave. 32 years later, Talisman and EEORC are still good friends and associates. Talisman unhesitatingly recommends Emmett Eiland Oriental Rugs for their integrity, expert knowledge, fine selection and reliable customer service. EEORC is a Berkeley institution that the city can rightly be proud of. Rugs taken to EEORC for cleaning will be hand cleaned at Talisman.
