Restoring an Antique Turkish Rug - Final Result


The photo above is the final result of our recent restoration project of a beautiful hand knotted Turkish rug.  As the before picture below shows, the damage to the pile was quite extensive.  The warp and weft were extremely damaged, and the pile was completely missing from an extended section.  We recreated the warp and weft and reknotted the pile in the style and manner of the original.  We took great care to match the colors to the original rug and also recreate the missing motifs and designs.  The rug is still very worn in various other sections, but the most significant damage has been restored.  This was a very fun to project to work on.
