Persian Rug Restoration - Before Pictures



Among the many wonderful aspects of working on Persian and Oriental rug restoration projects is the fantastic opportunity to work with an amazing array of colors.  The Persian rug pictured above is a field of vibrant reds, blues, oranges, greens, pinks, and even more colors that one would assume would ordinarily yield a jarring or disjointed color composition.  Yet this rug, with its floral design woven in the traditional Persian single knot technique, is not only harmonious, but pleasing to the eye.  The damage shown above - a hole or tear about twice the size of a quarter, was the subject of a recent rug restoration of ours.  Below is a picture of the damaged area from the back of the rug.  Note how the single knot technique allows for the design of the rug to be mirrored clearly from the back as well as the front.  --www.traditionalrugrepair.com
