Vintage Turkish Rug Repair Final Result

Above is the final result of our vintage Turkish rug repair.  As a reminder, the picture below shows the rug pre-repair.   We reconstructed the missing section, including reknotting the pile and replicating the original floral motifs; we did not use a "patch" from another rug to hide the damage.  This completed repair will allow the user of this rug to enjoy this vintage beauty for many years to come.  Handknotted rugs are quite sturdy and can outlast many of their owners (!), but we always caution our clients to take care when placing heavy furniture on top of their Turkish or any other handknotted Oriental rugs.  Simple precautions can help save these beautiful rugs for our future generations to enjoy.
