Invisible Mending

a recently completed patch - the threads just need clipped
The Invisible Mending technique, shown on Persian Gentleman, may be helpful to weavers who have a damaged piece they wish to repair.

Invisible mending is a sophisticated weaving method consisting in rebuilding the fabric of a garment but also of upholstery after an accident: snag, burn, accidental blade or scissor cut, etc.

Both the warp and weft of the fabric could have been damaged. Invisible mending is the reconstruction of both the warp and weft using a long needle.

The post includes photos of each step in the process.
