Textile, Tapestry, Leather & Carpet Conservation

This is a particularly specialist area of conservation, requiring workshop space and equipment, knowledge and experience. Conservation treatments will aim to protect objects by stablising them, removing harmful pollutants and supporting the weakened fabric, thereby retaining the integrity of the textile by using scientific and archaeological methods as well as traditional repair techniques.
