Antique Persian Rug Restoration - Final Result

After cutting down the reknotted pile and recreating the compromised fringe, the final result of our antique Persian rug fringe restoration is pictured above.  Note that we cut down the fringe along the edge of the entire length of the rug so that the fringe length would be uniform.  This was done for aesthetic reasons only.  We bound the fringe to minimize the risk of the pile unraveling.  As a reminder, the picture below is what the area looked like before the restoration.  In our next posts, we will highlight our restoration of other areas of this beautiful antique Persian rug.  --
