Moth Damage Persian Rug Repair - Final Result

As we shared in our last posts, the great vibrant rug pictured above was damaged by moths in several areas.  We cut down the newly reknotted pile to reveal the result - above is a photo of our final product.  As a reminder, below is a photo of what the area looked like when we brought it to our workshop (sorry about the flipped angle).  The warp and weft were intact (as cotton isn't attractive to moths) but the wool pile was completely devoured in several sections.  A reminder to all our readers - this is moth season so be sure to protect your valuable woolen goods - especially beloved Oriental rugs!
