The Textiles Working Group focuses on the preservation and conservation of objects made from all kinds of textile fibres, whether organic or inorganic, natural or man made. They can be as varied as 16th century tapestries in wool and silk with metal threads, 18th century silk bedcovers with embroidery, archeological textiles in wool or linen, religious vestments, costumes, or wall coverings. Modern and contemporary textiles, as well as scientific research into the properties of textiles and the materials used to conserve them, are among the interests of the Working Group.
