About

Preventive conservation for precious textiles

My interest in textile conservation began when I was studying at FIT. Preventive conservation is what we can do to keep textiles from further deterioration due to environmental causes or improper handling.
It is a maintenance regime that calls for frequent monitoring and use of safe materials for storage and display. In most cases people don't know what do to properly care for their collection. I provide free information on techniques, hard to find hanger sizes, and all the basic supplies to get started.
