Turkish Konya Kilim Repair

Various rug and kilim restoration projects have been keeping us busy and have prevented us from blogging more regularly.  One such recent project was repairing this lovely Konya Turkish handwoven kilim that had several damaged areas, including a significant tear along one of its fringe areas.  This Konya kilim has a very fine weaving density, and its beautiful hues of blues, reds, and ivories are a testament to just how more beautiful colors can become with the passage of time.  To repair this torn area, we had to reconstruct the warp and weft using materials that would blend into the older yarns. --www.traditionalrugrepair.com
