Indian Rug Restoration
“This rug was probably woven in the vicinities of Lahore, India in the 1890s. It is huge, 12 feet by 16 feet, and a finely knotted antique rug. Unfortunately, for an extended period sometime in the past, the moisture of the flower pots placed on this rug gradually caused two large dry rots, which disintegrated the pile along with its foundation.The artistic recreation of the 16th century Safavid-Persia and Mughal-India hybrid designs, the superb quality of the woolen pile dyed with natural colors, and the softness and overall pliability make this rug so unique and precious, and worth saving.
