Turkish Konya Kilim Repair - Final



After professionally cleaning the kilim, we began restoring the damaged area (shown below). As the picture above shows, we rebuilt the warp and weft and rewove the missing and damaged motifs.  As always, we tried to use yarns that would match the original yarns as closely as possible.  With older kilims or rugs, such as this Konya kilim, it is particularly important that the yarns used in any restoration  or repair be similarly aged so that the color of the restoration is muted allowing it to blend in with the original.  --www.traditionalrugrepair.com
