Language: Original   -   Translation
Abstract: This diploma thesis deals with two Turkmen tent band fragments in mixed technique consisting
of knotted pile areas on a warp-faced ground fabric. They originate from the region of presentday Turkmenistan and are dated to the 19th century in the course of the work. The
classification of the objects in terms of art and cultural history enables a better understanding
of their function. In the course of the technological inventory, the special features of the
manufacture of these objects are illuminated and hence damage inherent in the material and
production is identified. The practical part focuses on securing one of the two fragments by
stitching repair, which is then lined and mounted. The concept of conservation developed in
advance of the restoration and the mounting will serve as a guideline for the restoration of the
other fragment.


Keywords: knotting technique, material research, stitching repair, lining, mounting
