>>Your Textiles in Confident Hands<<

Welcome to Textile Conservation Lyko in Cologne!

Historical textiles – whether in use or being used as a decoration – can exhibit different shapes and styles. Textile artefacts can also be found together with other materials. For you and conservators the original item contains a special value due to its history. However, textiles can react sensitively due to damage and deterioration that has occurred over time.

Purpose and Ethics of the Conservation Field

The purpose of conservation is the preservation of cultural property for future generations. This involves protecting the object from further deterioration while retaining the authenticity of the object including any signs of usage.

For the conservation of unique pieces and cultural property we are working on the basis of the ethical conservation principles. This makes it important to recognize the condition and to identify the manufacture of the artefact for the evaluation of a suitable conservation concept with suitable conservation techniques. It is necessary too that the work follows scientific guidelines and standards. Therefore we take care of each object with the same demand of responsibility and accuracy.
