Mexican Kilim Repair - Final Result

Above is the final result of our Mexican kilim fringe repair.  As we detailed in our last post, we first professionally cleaned the kilim, then removed all compromised fibers, rebuilt the fringes (warp), reconstructed the damaged weft, and bound the fringe in the style of the rest of the undamaged fringe. If you look closely at the photo above, you may note that there is a slight difference between the red yarn we used in our repair of the weft right above the fringe and the red yarn of the original, but with time even this slight difference will dissipate.  Below, as a reminder, is what the kilim looked like before we started our repair project. --
