Packing a decorative textile
The conservation of decorative textiles and costumes requires a very special approach, not only because they are often in poor condition due to use, but also on account of their complex structure and the particular materials and processes used in their composition. In addition, bleaching, mould, and insects have over the years damaged the objects in this group and left them brittle and unstable, for which reason special measures must be taken when they are lent and exhibited.
