Antique Turkish Kilim Repair
Normally, rugs and kilims provide a beautiful backdrop to our everyday busy lives. But every now and then - especially when a new family member arrives (two legged or four legged), kilims and rugs become a tasty, irresistible, and costly snack. The beautiful antique Turkish kilim pictured above was one such snack. A new puppy grabbed onto this fine kilim and didn't let go until it tore through a significant piece of the kilim's field. When undertaking this kind of kilim repair project, it is of utmost important to match the yarns so that they blend into the rest of the kilim as much as possible.
