Turkish Konya Kilim Repair - Before


The kilim pictured above is from the Konya region of Turkey.  The beautiful bright blues, greens, and reds make Konya kilims particularly vibrant pieces.  This kilim had wear in various areas, including in the "hands on hips" motif pictured above.  After we professionally cleaned the kilim, we fastened it to a temporary wooden loom.  We then removed all the compromised weft and ensured that the warp's integrity was intact.  The next step was to find matching red yarn and reweave the missing motif.  --
