Tapestry Repair Tapestry Restoration Tapestry Cleaning

We repaired a very old, delicate and damaged 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.

Our customer came in to check the tapestry out yesterday. She inspected the restoration and the whole job. She was extremely happy with the outcome. We have wrapped up the tapestry in special type of thick cushioning wrapping paper to deliver it. Since this 18th century tapestry is very fragile, we have rolled it up around a heavy duty long tube.
