ANTIQUE RUG REPAIR AND RESTORATION
The purpose of repairing rare, antique or valuable rug is to restore the original beauty and physical integrity that may have been damaged by years of use. This is accomplished by recreating or reweaving portions of the carpet, either the surface pile or in the case of holes, even the underlying foundation as well. Such restoration requires enormous technical skill and precision, as well as discernment in the matching of yarn texture and color. This process requires expertise and a refined eye to match as well the original texture of the carpet so that the repair will not be detectable.
The extent of restoration that may be required in both in time and expense depends not only on condition but also on the value of the carpet in relation to the cost of the repair. A knowledgeable dealer in antique carpets with market expertise will make this decision. Such restoration can make a damaged piece usable and commercially viable once again. But ultimately the greatest reward in repairing your antique oriental rugs is the knowledge that a rare and beautiful work of art is being preserved for generations to come.
