Today, The Textile Museum staff offer counsel for professionals around the world seeking the latest best-practices in textile care and display. The role of the Conservation Department has evolved to encompass not only the treatment of individual textiles, but also provisions for the long-term care of the collection as a whole, with major emphasis on the development of improved exhibition methods. This set of guidelines for your personal collection was prepared by Textile Museum staff.
