Conservation & Repair

Beloved christening gowns, fragile wedding dresses, and other heirlooms all deserve skilled treatments to preserve the past and enrich our lives and those of our children. Fine hand-stitching, reweaving, dye and stain analysis are among techniques used in conservation.

Cleaning & Care

Acidic discoloration, stains and creases can often be removed using a combination of wet and dry cleaning. After careful testing, cleaning, and stabilization, your heirlooms can be preserved for many more years to come.

Display & Installation

Mounts are designed to protect and preserve a textile while augmenting its strong graphic power or subtle beauty. Custom displays can include the design of interior space and lighting and professional installation to showcase textile collections harmoniously with other artworks.
