Turkish Kilim Repair - Result



After professionally cleaning the kilim, we removed all the compromised warp and weft along the diagonal slit weave design.  We then rebuilt the compromised warp while sourcing yarns for the weft that would match the original kilim's colors.  We then rewove the weft while striving to maintain the beautiful varied abrash of the red colored yarn in particular (i.e., the wonderfully non-uniform red color along the diagonal).  Above is a picture of the result of our Turkish kilim repair; below is a picture of the piece before our restoration.  --www.traditionalrugrepair.com
