Restoration of antique textiles and tapestries is not an easy task.
It requires enormous patience and a great deal of skills.
In comparison with other historic artifacts, very few textiles have survived to become collectable because unlike other antiques, textiles are extremely fragile.
Always presume that the textile is unique, irreplaceable, and fragile.
It is very important not to subject an antique textile to any stress.
Antique textiles and tapestries can be maintained for years of use and enjoyment provided that professional attention is given to their care and preservation.
