Antique Persian Rug Restoration - In Process

Above are pictures of our recent antique Persian rug restoration in process.  As we blogged yesterday, this beautiful antique Persian carpet had a tear along its side as well as compromised sections of its selvage.   We reconstructed the missing and damaged warp and weft, as highlighted in the first couple of pictures, and then reknotted the pile.  The next stage in the restoration process is to cut the excess yarns which will reveal the reknotted motifs.
