Persian Rug Repair - After
After professionally cleaning this Persian rug, we removed all the damaged fibers, as well as all the surrounding fibers that had been compromised. We then reconstructed the warp, weft, and pile. Above is a picture of the selvage after our repair. Below is a photo of the same area as seen from the back of the rug. Often, it is easier to spot a repair or restoration from the back of the rug rather than the front.
Below is a photo of our rug repair in progress. The grid-like area comprised of cotton yarns is the structure upon which we reknotted the woolen pile with motifs consistent with the original design of the rug.
As a reminder, below are pictures of the front and back of the damaged area before we undertook our repair of the damaged edge of this rug. --www.traditionalrugrepair.com
