Tapestry Repair

This is an example of a damaged handmade chain stitched Kashmir tapestry.  As the pictures indicate, the beautiful intricate stitching was torn in the area surrounding the floral motifs.  The tapestry was stitched in lovely neutral tones - an immediate challenge was to find yarns that could blend into the neutral palette so as not to attract too much attention to the restored area.  --www.traditionalrugrepair.com
