The Art of Rug-Reweaving

Do you have a Persian rug that needs reweaving?

By Rassin R.  |  December 24, 2018

Behnam Rugs explains, Persian Rug Weaving and Oriental Rug reweaving are interchangeable terms that essentially mean the same. Persian rug weaving is a process of creating textile by interlacing threads. The initial rug weaving is done on a loom, a frame like piece of equipment that holds two types of threads.

  1. Warp threads that run vertically, attached to the loom frame and held in tension.
  2. Weft threads run horizontally and are interlaced with warp threads.

Depending on what type of rug it is, the warps can either be natural silk, cotton, or wool. The wefts also can be natural silk, cotton, or wool. In that case the rug is a “silk on silk rug”, or “silk on wool rug”, or “wool on silk rug” or “silk on wool rug” or “cotton on wool”, or “wool on cotton”, or “cotton on silk”, and rarely cotton on cotton.

However, Persian Rug Weaving is more like a Persian rug repair. The Warps and Wefts will be repaired by an expert Rug weaver. Behnam Rugs is a go-to design resource since 1978.
