Old Anatolian rugs with the Oushak design are beautiful rugs that come in colourful blends. This particular piece was shipped to us from New York and with its old age was in a tremendously bad state with pieces missing and coming off. It took a long period of time for us to complete this project not only because of the work effort, but due to the time it takes to find the old wool in these special dyes and colours.

You can see the completed images below and the extent of damage before hand but it was definitely worth the time.

This is a 17th century French Aubusson tapestry Pillow woven with silk thread. A group of six of these pillows were brought to us and had a lot of threadbare and torn out pieces that took tremendous effort to repair and bring back to life.

These pieces were so fine that our weavers had to take breaks in between the work, as they wouldn't be able to see the knots after half an hour of work due to the extremely fine needle work.

This Particular Project was sent to us from America to be repaired. The segment in the image had become rotten and had also been repaired with little attention. At rugmaster, about 10 percent of our work is just correcting previous repairs that were not done accuratley. Dry rot in rugs lead to the deterioration of the foundation fibers, leading to a total lack of structural integrity and to a rug this means it can simply fall apart; hence we had to remove the rotten part of the rug completley and reweave the rug back to its original state. The end result came out better than expected.

The gallery shows the entire rug as well as the process of repairs while they were being carried out. This was a relatively large project that required sharp attention to detail. Our team of skilled masterweavers were able to transform this piece from its detrimental state to a piece of art that appears to be new with no prior damage. The images below show the rug when it has been completed and finalised.
