Oriental rug fringe repair - before pictures


While pretty much everyone agrees that a new puppy brings nothing but joy to a home, every once in a while, a new (or sometimes not so new) puppy decides to chew on your new (or sometimes not so new) Oriental rug.  This is what happened to the owner of the Persian rug pictured here.  As you can see, the puppy was fascinated by the Persian rug's border motifs and cotton fringe in particular.  A fringe is the most vulnerable part of a rug and is absolutely critical to preserving the integrity of the handknotted pile which forms the various motifs of the rug.  Left as is and unrepaired, the damage shown here would eventually start to worsen and the entire edge of the rug could come undone.  It is for this reason that I always recommend to have any compromised fringes on an Oriental rug repaired as soon as possible.   --www.traditionalrugrepair.com
