Antique Persian Rug Restoration

Our rug restoration projects have been keeping us busy, and we've sadly taken a long break from blogging.  We intend to rectify that.  One of the recent projects we took on during our blogging hiatus was an antique Persian rug restoration.  The Persian rug, seen here, had extensive damage, including a clean tear along the middle.  Perhaps the two pieces of this runner were torn apart to be used in separate spaces, but the client, understandably, wanted to restore his beautiful Persian antique runner to its former glory.  The rug required extensive restoration, including joining the two pieces that had somehow been separated.

The restoration also required that we reweave extensive wear and several holes that had occurred over a century in the field of the Persian rug.

Below is another picture of the worn field of the antique Persian rug.

This was a fantastic challenge for us.  We will share our progress and results of this damaged, but beautiful, antique Persian rug in blogs to come.
