This is an old afghan khan rug. This rug was subject to immense wear. The reason this rug’s fringes were damaged to such an extent is very simple, the fringes were not properly secured. Fringes play a vital role in the upkeep of rugs, they act as a border to prevent damage. Due to the absence of secured fringes in this rug, the customer inevitably had to bring the rug in for restoration as the very rug itself had started detiriorating. With all rugs, if they are not secured at the fringes and sidecord, one can expect an increase in deterioration over time.
