Oriental rug's fringes repaired - final result




As some of you will remember, I last left you in the middle of repairing fringes that had been chewed off by a client's hungry puppy.  We stretched new warp onto a loom taking care to stretch it far into the field of the rug.  To complete the repair, we knotted the missing pile, bound the edges, and put in decorative knots along the edge of the fringe and the pile, as seen below.



Pictured below is the front of the repaired fringes - I hope these are less appetizing, but equally beautiful. --www.traditionalrugrepair.com
