A Dog Chewed My Kilim! Help!
It has been a long time since we have written, but we have been busy working on great restoration projects for clients. This kilim was damaged by a well-meaning, but hungry, puppy who took a big chunk out of this kilim. This is a Maimana kilim from Afghanistan and is lovely for its bold colors and geometric motifs. Like many Maimana kilims, this kilim was woven with rich reds and autumnal shades of orange. The damage spanned an 8-9 inch section of the border of the kilim. The kilim's owner luckily saved the kilim before further damage ensued. --
