Repairing woven shield

In some areas the woven plant material had become loose, or broken. To prevent further losses or damage the loose ends where glued back down so they don't catch on anything and break off. An adhesive was painted onto the under sides of the loose ends and held in place with very light pressure from tooth picks wedged against a foam block.
