Good Questions: Is It Possible To Trim Down This Rug?

Hello AT,

Many years ago while traveling in Turkey I bought this beautiful rug. Over the years it has moved from room to room and has gotten damanged along the way.

I would like to trim it down to a smaller size, which would result in a like-new albeit smaller rug, perfect for my new den in Harlem. Can a rug be trimmed in this manner? I can't seem to find anyone who know how to do this. Thanks! Scott
