Moth damage is a very common in vegetable dyed wool rugs when they are neglected and unused. This is down to the fact that moths feed on the rug and lay eggs. Moth damages does not mean that the rug is ruined as we are able to bring the rug back to its original state.
At Carpets Clinic, we have a skilled team which has worked on numerous rugs with moth damage and produce a original outcome to the damaged area. Moth damages inevitably produce a hole into wool rugs if the weft, warp and pile is made of wool, this then leads to needing new foundation followed by re-piling. However, in most cases moths do not feed on the foundation as they are not made of wool so the warp and weft is not touched. In this case the rug requires to be re-piled.
