Oushak Rug Repair - Process
After we professionally cleaned this beautiful Oushak rug, we proceeded to start our repair project. We always work on handknotted rugs from the back. As you can see from the photo above, our task was to rebuild the damaged and missing warp. The warp is what forms, with the weft, the grid like structure on which the knotting can take place. It is like the back bone of a rug. The warp of this Oushak rug is cotton which is a very strong material that is often used for the warp and weft of hand knotted rugs. -- www.traditionalrugrepair.com Kosker Traditional Rug Repair
