Antique bokhara rug restoration

There are very few material things that can last as long as a fine Oriental rug.  One of the characteristics of finely woven Oriental rugs that allows them to last as long as they do is their ability to be restored.  This beautiful antique rug had a hole near its center.  We rebuilt the warp and then reknotted the pile striving for the reknotted motifs and colors to blend in with the original rug.  We are always gratified when a client sees her or his rug again after our restoration and has trouble finding where we restored the rug.  We take that as a great professional achievement and are satisfied that we helped conserve another beautiful rug for another few decades, at least.
