Antique Farahan Rug

We received an antique large Farhan (Ferehan) rug from a customer for repair. The size is 18 x 14 and the design is Herati, an old version of today's fish (mahi) design. It is used under a very big and heavy dinning table and the heavy chairs damage the rug which is very thin and vulnerable. The foundation of this magnificient Persian carpet is cotton and the pile is wool. The knots are asymmetrical and it is double-wefted.
