Kilim Restoration - After the Kilim Cleaning - Mid Process

After the kilim cleaning has been completed, I rebuilt the warp (the horizontal white lines in the picture above), and am weaving in the weft to recreate the missing pattern.  Matching the yarns exactly was not possible, but I'm happy with the result so far.  This kilim is a beautiful tightly woven kilim from the Caucasus and a joy to work on.  Come back for pictures of the "after" shot once the kilim restoration is completed. --www.traditionalrugrepair.com
