The material on this box was actually woven in a big sheet and then wrapped onto the box. There is braid holding down it's edges and seam. It is almost impossible to find this kind of woven 'cloth' and to re-weave the damaged areas on this
So instead our client went for a more creative route. Instead of repairing the woven fibers, we covered them with some custom made medallions. While we were cutting, we also made a much nicer lid. Our client does her own 'faux painting' so she is going to add all the finishing touches to this project. We think this box came out looking very cute! Hopefully we can convince our client to take some photos for us, once her painting project is done.
