Textiles, costumes, tapestries, carpets and leather

Very important sectors in the decorative arts have often been wrongly considered as minor areas of production. There are many artifacts of these genres that too often are preserved in an unsuitable way. These materials are used in a wide variety of productions, in ancient costumes, in liturgical vestments, in the oriental sphere where, for example, painted silks are used, the fabric support is used in the same way as painting, in carpets, tapestries and upholstery made of precious fabrics, or in the covering of precious objects, but they are also frequently used in design and contemporary art. In all these and many other cases they need specialized attention and care.
