Nepalese silk rug repair

The silk rug pictured below was handknotted in Nepal.  It is a modern piece suitable to many tastes, including that of puppies which apparently took a bite out of the corner as seen below.


Below is an image of the missing and damaged corner of this silk Nepalese rug.  The repair project included reknotting the missing areas, replacing the missing warp and weft, and binding the selvage and fringes.  

The silk rug is monochromatic, although as with all silk rugs, the colors look different depending on whether you view the rug along the pile or against it.  Stay tuned for the results of our Nepalese silk rug repair. --www.traditionalrugrepair.com
