Back holes in textile with suitably dyed material to match original.
Generally good. A number of holes scattered over the textile.
Cotton calico was dyed to match using Solophenyl (azo dye). This was used to support the damaged areas which were couched to the support using monofilament silk custom dyed with Lanaset (comp. unknown). The textile was rolled for return to the department.
