Kilim Repair

 


After all these years, I still get excited when I start a new kilim restoration project.  I enjoy every stage of the process, including the yarn selection that is so critical to how the restoration looks when it is completed.  While it is never possible to find a perfect match, we generally have success in making sure that the shade we choose will allow the restoration to blend into the original piece as much as possible.  Whenever I start something new, I always marvel that it takes so few tools to create, or in this case, restore, something that will likely outlive our generation by so many years.  It's a way of connecting to the past, and to the future.  And in that fact, I find great peace and beauty. --www.traditionalrugrepair.com
