      The recommended labelling technique for attaching accession numbers to textiles is sewing a written tag onto textiles.

      What would be the correct course of action to take if the textiles are very delicate, and there is a potential for the labelling procedure to cause unnecessary damage to the item being labelled?

      Would it be a sensible course of action to ask a skilled needle worker to undertake the procedure, rather than a curator who is competent to perform the procedure on textiles of a robust nature, where there is less risk of damaging the object, but is concerned about causing the minimum necessary distress ?
