Another Kilim Restoration - The Before Picture
kilim repair/restoration project. This time, I repaired a beautiful kilim from the Caucuses. As you can see, the entire warp and weft were missing in a section of the kilim. As I have written in earlier blog posts, the beginning of any rug repair or rug restoration (or kilim repair or kilim restoration) begins with finding the right yarns. But, generally, it's also important to make sure that repair and restoration is done after any necessary rug cleaning or kilim cleaning. This way, the yarns used in the repair or restoration match the clean rug or kilim. Come back soon to see how this project turned out! --www.traditionalrugrepair.com.
