A Rare Persian Senneh Rug With Silk Foundation

One of our repeat customers brought in an antique rare Senneh rug with multi-colored silk foundation for cleaning and repair. They had this wonderful piece in the family for a long time. It was at least 100 years old. Some of the colored warps had bled.

We did the work we should and it turned out great. I just wanted to share the brief story and few pictures with my readers.

Always fantastic photos from you Dr. Sobhe. I like very much these "rainbow warp" Senneh Rugs. They are so unique.

The touch of using multi-colored warps adds such a greater dimension even though 95% is hidden by pile: A modest display of what is truly a work of art.

A fine looking weaving, thank you for sharing! Best,

You're welcome. Rug dealers do not want to share their stories! It does not cost to share.

Thank you,
