Conservation of a Tebriz Salting rug, XVIIth century, Louvre Museum

Restoration and conservation of carpets and rugs

Deciding on the type of treatment, conservation or restoration, essentially depends on the historical value of the object: if the carpet is ancient and unique, preference is given to a conservation treatment.

The restoration of a carpet involves the restitution of the techniques used in its fabrication: the colours should match as closely as possible those of the original, and the number of knots per m2 should be identical.

In a conservation treatment the areas of loss are consolidated by stitching to localised textile supports of a weave, nature and colour that are adapted to the object; the edges of areas of loss and the warps are consolidated by couching stiches to the textile support.
