There is something wonderfully satisfying when a restorer is at a certain point in her or his project. For me, it's usually when the work of the warp and weft is done, and the reknotting can begin. I love seeing how the rug comes back to life, how it becomes whole again.
In this project, the photos show us close to that stage. We have professionally cleaned the antique Turkish Yahyali rug, and are reconstructing the warp and weft. All that remains is the reknotting before it can be used and enjoyed for a few more decades, if not longer. ---www.traditionalrugrepair.com
