The Art of Over Weaving

The weaver takes a piece of fabric from a hidden area of the garment, matching the direction and pattern of the damaged area. Using a special latch needle and magnifying glasses, the fabric piece is woven into a blocked area around the damage. Then the cut out area is replaced with lining.

The overweave can show as a faint square, especially in light tan colors. Usually, however, it is unnoticeable to a person not aware of the repair.
