Kilim Restoration - Mid Process




Here is the kilim restoration mid-process. I have already rebuilt the warp (the "backbone" of the kilim; in the second picture, the white vertical lines are the warp). I am wrapping beige yarn around the warp to create the weft of the kilim in a "slit-weave" design. "Slit-weave" is the type of weaving that leaves little "slits" or holes in the weft. It is a beautiful type of weaving typical in many Turkish and Persian kilims. - www.traditionalrugrepair.com
