Antique Soumak Repair - Final

After rebuilding the warp and weft, we then rewove the missing motifs in yarns that nearly matched the original colors exactly.  Above is a picture of the rewoven area (as a final step, we removed the excess warp (the white loose thread)).  As a reminder, the picture below is the same area before our restoration work.  This Soumak restoration was a pleasure to work on - the piece is so vibrant and lovely, we hope its owner will enjoy it for many years to come.
