Restoring a Persian Kilim


This lovely Persian kilim was in great need of repair to various damaged areas, including to a hole in the center field of the kilim.  The picture above shows the missing warp and weft of a section of the kilim just as we started restoring the missing warp (see the white horizontal threads right beneath the hole).  As you can see in the picture, reweaving the section required finishing the orange motif as well as the beige motif and outlining each with blue.  --www.traditionalrugrepair.com
