Tapestry Cleaning Tapestry Repair and Restoration

We have been working on the restoration of a big 10' x 14' antique French tapestry. Probably 2/3 of the repair is done. I have assigned two of our master weavers to work on this  beautiful 18th century masterpiece. The construction is made of cotton, wool and silk. The foundation of this tapestry is very weak and it gets damaged whenever we wrap and un-wrap it. We will sew and attach a canvas backing to it for extra support. Repair and restoration of old and antique tapestries is one of our specialties.

I spent a couple of hours this Saturday afternoon inspecting the tapestry, taking pictures and videos. I am posting few pictures of the repair here. I will have to post the video later in another post after it is edited.
