tapestry. It took us two months to restore it. When we got this antique tapestry it was full of dust, dirt, and mildew. We hand cleaned it and then started the restoration process. We also prepared the backing and installed it for more protection. Tapestry cleaning and repair needs more expertise and patience than cleaning and restoring rugs because tapestries are more delicate and fragile. I am posting a short video clip here which shows before, the process, and after cleaning and repair.
