Persian Antique Rug Repair in Los Angeles

We receive many antique Persian carpets for repair. Each Persian rug has it's own construction, weave, design, and material. If reweaving is needed, first we have to make foundations on which we can tie the knots and do the reweave. In this process, we have to match the construction and knot density. Matching the design and color palette are the other two very important matters that we have to pay attention to.

Here, I am posting pictures of an antique Farahan we received from a very respected rug dealer and collector. We are doing the repair and restoration of this unique piece. In the last picture, we can see the process of making the foundation.
