After professionally cleaning the rug and removing all compromised fibers, we were able to assess the complete extent of the wear and damage of this fine Persian rug. We reconstructed the missing pile striving to match the colors of the original rug's yarns and motifs. Above is a photo of the restored rug.
We have heard from some clients in the past that they actually favor the worn look, and we can definitely see the appeal. However, some wear, while aesthetically pleasing, might compromise the stability of the rug and allow for too much loss of the rug's original weaving. In these instances, it is always best to restore the rug to stabilize it and to ensure that it can be enjoyed for decades to come. --www.traditionalrugrepair.com
