Repairing a Turkish Kilim - Final Result
After professionally cleaning this Turkish kilim, we attached small wooden frames on the sections needing to be repaired and rewoven. Next, we wove in warp, the vertical white strands pictured below.
Next, using yarns that match the original colors of the kilim, we rewove the missing motifs following the original design. Below is a picture of the weaving in progress.
Finally, pictured below is our latest Turkish kilim repair.
