Turkish Kilim Restoration

We recently restored this lovely Turkish kilim, which was made using a slit weave design.  The kilim is absolutely beautiful constructed entirely of warm shades of brown and beige yarns.  The warp was mostly intact so the focus of our restoration was mostly on finding the right yarns for the missing and damaged weft.  One of the most gratifying aspects of working on kilims is that the result of our work is immediately visible - there is no need to shear down yarns in order to see if our work is as we desired.  The photo above shows us restoring a damaged tent motif.  After our restoration is complete, the owner of this beautiful Turkish kilim should be able to enjoy it for many years to come with just a minimal amount of periodic care and maintenance. --www.traditionalrugrepair.com
