Undoing an Old Repair - Afghan Rug Restoration Project Final Result
After many hours of weaving and knotting, we completed our Afghan rug restoration project. Pictured above is the result. You will note from the final result picture (as well as from our in progress pictures) that the restoration is integrated into the original structure of the rug thereby making it both more aesthetically pleasing and significantly more durable. With time, the very slight variation in the red yarns should appear even more like the original rug once the rug is exposed to some sunlight. The photos below show the original patch before repair.
