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 very privileged to conserve some fantastic and important items. This gorgeous red wool 17th century Bible bag with silk velvet ribbon trim and tassels was owned by the wife of the founder of the Library of Innerpeffray; Scotland’s first free public lending library founded in 1680!

As you can see, there was damage and wear to the different elements of the bag which required our attention. The first job was colour matching for fabric to support and in-fill the holes. We'll bring you more updates on the progress of the conservation work!
