Nepalese Rug Repair - Final



In our last post, I shared a "before" picture of a recent repair we did on a Nepalese hand knotted rug.  To repair the hole, we built a warp and weft (pictured below) on which to knot the missing pile.



Below is a picture of the area after our repair.  



As always, our goal was to make the repaired area blend into the original weaving.  For a rug such as this one, in which there are no bright colors and dynamic patterns, it is particularly challenging to make the repair disappear, but perhaps even more important. --www.traditionalrugrepair.com
