Antique Turkish Tulu Rug Restoration - Final Result




As we highlighted in our recent posts, after professionally cleaning the antique Turkish Tulu rug, we reconstructed the missing warp and weft.  We then started knotting the Tulu pile and left the yarns loose in the same "shag" style of the original Tulu.  The pictures below were taken in different lights and therefore appear to be of different colors, but they are of the same area of the rug.



Below is a picture after we started knotting the missing pile.  As you can see, there is still visible warp and weft on which we had to knot more pile.


Finally, below is the final result of our antique Turkish Tulu rug restoration.  Again, the different light that we used to take the pictures makes the rug's colors seem different, but they are the same color.  --www.traditionalrugrepair.com
