Antique Persian Worn Rug Repair - in progress

As we already had professionally cleaned the rug before commencing our last repair, we were able to proceed directly to removing all the compromised wool pile that had been affected by the worn areas.  Because the warp and weft of the rug had not been compromised, we were able to use the existing structure for our reknotting.  Pictured above is the reknotted section before we cut down the wool knots.  --
