Oriental Rug Restoration - It's All in the Details


What makes for a successful Oriental rug restoration?  There are many elements involved.  First, the right yarns - the right texture and shade will go a long way in making for a seemingly "invisible" restoration that blends into the original.  Second, the proper set up - something that allows for the damaged area of the rug to be stretched out is also important.  Next, a uniform and tight grid to work on (the foundational warp and weft) is critical.  Lastly, a lot of time, patience, and skill.  These last elements are important because a proper restoration is nothing without attention to detail.  Getting the knotting right and following the pattern to recreate the missing motifs is important if the restoration will be successful.  --
