After professionally cleaning the moth infested Beni Ourain rug, we extracted all the damaged fibers and began the repair process. As the photos above and below show, we first reconstructed the warp and weft, the grid-like structure upon which we could build the pile.
Below you can see the reconstructed warp and weft from the front side of the rug.
Now the reknotting of the pile can begin. In our next post, we will share our final result of this Beni Ourain rug repair. --www.traditionalrugrepair.com
