Rug Pads & Underlayment

The right pad underneath your rug will not only keep you safe from slipping, but also increase the longevity of your rug by protecting the knots. We offer free samples of all three types of pads that we carry.

Our pads are $2.50 per square foot. Each one is custom cut for your rug, leaving the pad approximately 1.5” smaller than your rug on all four sides to ensure a seamless fit.

Need a pad? We can have one ready same-day.

    My most favorite rug shop of all time! Service is always courteous, professional and helpful, and promised times for completion of services (multiple rug cleanings in my case, though I aspire to buy in the future!) can be counted on. I've had all kinds of rugs with stains, needing general cleaning and even small repairs, and in each case the rugs came back as though they were new! I'll be proud to put them down in my new home, and will gladly sing the praises of this delightful company!

    Tomas and his team are as good as it gets. Great service and a Huge inventory of beautiful carpets. We purchased a beautiful area rug from Tomas and we were very impressed by all aspects of how they do business, above and beyond is the way they operate. Service after the purchase has been more the excellent, would highly recommend the Asian Trade Rug Co as the place you need to go when you are looking for a new rug.

    My wife and I have purchased three rugs here, and have had another cleaned with remarkable results. The folks here are wonderful and extremely knowledgeable about every detail of the construction and history of their products. The prices are very fair. We'll buy there again without a doubt.

    We can't say enough good things about this business. Not only did they do a great job cleaning a dhurrie rug for us, but Ali, their master carpet repair man, repaired a treasured rug for us after we thought it had been destroyed by the dry cleaners. The rug, a remnant from the old Mountain Oyster Club downtown, was torn in several places when we foolishly sent it to be dry cleaned. From now on we will only take our rugs to Asian Trade Rug Company for any cleaning or repairs.

    We took our oriental rugs for cleaning after having a bad experience elsewhere. They were very reassuring and knowledgeable and we are very pleased with the results. We recommend Asian Trade Rug Company wholeheartedly.

    After having our area rugs cleaned at Asian Trade Rug Company this last spring, we recently purchased two rugs from Asian Trade Rug for our home. Not only were we pleased with both the process and the results from their cleaning our rugs, but also we are very pleased with our new purchases from Asian Trade Rug Company. Its entire staff makes the process for both easy, comfortable, and convenient. They have a wonderful selection, so if you are interested in traditional, antique, tribal/nomadic such as Gabbeh, and so on, you very likely will find something you love.
