Tapestry Repair and Restoration, 18th Century Tapestry

We just finished restoration of big ca 8' x 10' 18th century French tapestry. We are going to deliver and install it on the wall tomorrow. We're all excited that we finished this very difficult job. This beautiful antique tapestry was falling apart when we picked it up from our customer's house. It has wool and silk face and silk parts were rotten and in the process of repair, the silk threads disintegrated and became like dust and powder. The wool parts were in better condition.

It was a delicate job and where ever we wanted o put the needles through to secure was weak and almost
un-repairable. But, we managed to finish it. Tapestry cleaning and repair is a good part of our service department and we have knowledgeable repair crew who do this with love and care.
