Textile Conservation / Restoration & Collection Care

Saving our past for the future

Welcome

Younger Conservation Ltd offer services and experience in textile conservation/restoration, materials science, collections care and project management. We conserve a range of modern and historic textiles including: tapestry, embroideries, carpets, rugs, furnishing textiles, banners, costume, upholstery fabrics, lace and ecclesiastical embroidery; and work with other conservators and contractors to preserve related ‘Objects d’Art’.

We love what we do and take particular care to understand our client’s needs. Remedial work is carried out either in our well-equipped Perthshire workshop or on site. We travel widely within the UK to meet clients, inspect and consult on work that can be varied because each job presents different challenges.

Training and experience count for a great deal; we are accredited by the Institute of Conservation in both textile and preventive conservation. When possible, we take the opportunity to disseminate our knowledge to the future generation of conservator/restorers.

Our service is bespoke, personal and dedicated.

We are currently working on these large Military Colours from The Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders Regimental Museum. These Colours were carried at the Battle of Balaklava, fought on 25th October 1854 during the Crimean War.

The Colours will be removed from their current boards, supported with stitching where required and then mounted on to new conservation grade boards for re-display.
