Oriental Rug Repair: Step-by-Step Reknotting, Reconstruction,care by Peter F Stone

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 floor coverings, with current prices reflecting their newfound status. As a result, rugs that may once have remained buried in attics or been destined for the scrapheap are being revived, repaired and restored. Rug repair services are more popular than ever, and yet many repairs are not as difficult as you may think. Anyone who can learn needlecraft can acquire the necessary skills. "Oriental Rug Repair" is a comprehensive guide, covering all the essential techniques, materials and tools for reknotting, reconstruction and preservation. Accessible text is accompanied by clear step-by-step diagrams and illustrations which 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; and, wash rugs, remove stains and carry out general maintenance.
