Handmade Turkish Rug Repair - Before

This hand knotted rug is from a region of Turkey not far from my hometown in central Anatolia.  It is from Taspinar, Turkey which is known for finely knotted rugs decorated with marvelous geometric motifs, and colored in dynamic blues and vibrant reds. This Taspinar rug was damaged along the border and selvage by both moths and undue stress along the selvage.

From the underside of the rug, the moth damage is more apparent, in particular along the selvage. --www.traditionalrugrepair.com
