The cotton hem and fringe on this very fine 10x18 Persian Ispahan was badly damaged in multiple places on both ends. Over the years it had rotted and had been mended to hold it together and fringe was inserted where it was missing.

This is a picture of the completely restored hem and fringe. Due to the intricate nature of the restoration work required we shipped the rug to the restoration center in Turkey which we have been working with for many years. Because they used cotton and wool only found in the Middle East the master weavers were able to complete the task with incredible results. The project took four months to complete.

This picture depicts repairs being performed to a side cord and corner.

The technician is weaving a chain stitch to an end of a rug to lock in the wool so it does not unravel.

Our artisans have the expertise to reweave flat weaves, aubussons, kilims and Navajo rugs.

Before: Silk rug with ends unraveling.

After: Repair technician weaving a chain to secure end.

Before: This is a room-size rug that was damaged from a potted plant. The hole was 1ft. 6in. across. In the photo a piece of white paper was placed under the hole to aid in the picture.

After: This is the completed repair of the damaged rug from the potted plant. In this particular case the cost to reweave the hole would have been cost-prohibitive compared to the value of the rug. So a patch was made on a foundation of burlap, matching the pattern, wool colors, and height of pile. The end result was the rug was repaired very economically and the hole from the potted plant was very difficult to find.
