Textile Conservation

 We work with textile conservation experts who specialise in the care, repair, preparation, mounting and display of historic textiles for exhibition. Textiles are particularly susceptible over time, to deterioration for a variety of reasons; wear and tear through use, exposure to light, insects, poor mounting. Our first concern with any textile item is condition and we will always take time to examine condition before proceeding to framing.  If there are concerns we are happy to arrange for the conservator to have a look and offer advice and if necessary, carry out conservation/preservation procedures, always with the prior customers agreement.
