When restoring and conserving textiles, we would often offer an integrative restoration or a conservative restoration (depending on the condition of the rug/tapestry). The key difference between these styles is that integrative restoration focuses on areas of damage such as missing parts, lacerations and any damage to the corners and selvedges (side edges). As conservative restoration concentrates on the structure that would include applying conservation lining, reinforcing the material and inserting wefts.
Additional damage we restore include:
- Colour Bleeding
- Damp & Water Damage
- Vermin Damage
If it is more conservation you are looking for then we provide preservation treatments available as one offs or as part of a care program. Including a range of deep cleaning & maintenance services, we would examine the rugs or tapestries to devise a bespoke service stated to the specification of the textile.
