Persian kilim restoration - in process and final result




We left you with a "before" - actually a "just started" picture of a recent Persian kilim repair we did.  
                                                                           

We first recreated the warp which acts as the "backbone" of the kilim.


Next, as shown in the picture above, we started reweaving the weft and recreating the motifs as they once were - note the completion of the star motif outlined in blue.



And, lastly, above is a picture of the completed repair.  We always strive to blend in the repaired or restored area to the original kilim as much as possible.  --www.traditionalrugrepair.com
