Mexican Kilim Repair - In Process
After professionally cleaning the Mexican kilim and proceeding to eliminate all compromised fibers along the fringed edge, we began to rebuild the damaged fringe. The white vertical cotton strands in the next photos show the reconstructed fringe (which, in essence is the repaired warp). Our next step will be to bind the repaired fringe to minimize the risk of unraveling and reconstruct all compromised weft.
