Egyptian Felt Rug

Egyptian Felt Rug

This old Egyptian Tribal felt rug as evident was severely damaged over time. As a result of moth damage, the embroidery work on the rug had started to diminish. Egyptian felt rugs are not only rare but also encompass a weaving style which one may describe as uncommon and unusual. However, despite these drawbacks and the delicate task at hand our master weavers were able to restore the rug to full health. They even managed to do this without any sort of template or picture to work on, simply making use of the deteriorating stitch marks of old, utilising them as a guide in terms of where to weave. Thus pleasing our customer who may have thought it was a task close to impossible.
