About this title

Synopsis:

A definitive, step-by-step guide to the reknotting, reconstruction, care, and preservation of oriental rugs

The demand for oriental rugs has increased dramatically in recent years. Many owners now put more value on their rugs as works of art than as floor coverings, and current prices reflect their status. As a result, rugs that may once have remained stored in attics or been destined for the junkyard are being revived, repaired, and restored.

Rug repair services are more popular than ever, but many repairs are not as difficult as you may think. Anyone who can learn needlecraft can acquire the necessary skills.

This comprehensive guide covers all the essential techniques, materials, and tools required to repair oriental rugs. The accessible text is accompanied by clear step-by-step diagrams and illustrations that teach you how to:
  • assess damaged areas
  • understand rug structure
  • select yarn
  • reknot
  • reconstruct warp and weft
  • use patches
  • repair selvage and edges
  • repair ends and flatweaves
  • wash rugs, remove stains, and carry out general maintenance
Oriental Rug Repair is a must-have reference for beginners and a useful sourcebook for dealers and collectors. 40 color and 370 b/w illustrations
