Especially with an aged rug and with the effects this has on colors, finding the exact match can be very difficult and at times impossible. Many colors used in previous generation rugs may not be readily available. One similarity with fine antique rug repair and silk rug repair is in the weaving process. Both types of rugs requires a weaver who can weave with fine precision. The reason for this is that the threads used for both silk and fine antique rugs are usually very fine.
