New materials and eco-sustainable technologies for the conservation and restoration of textiles

Objective

There is a urgent need, jointly acknowledged by EU Member States and Macs, to preserve Textile Heritage. Hence, R&D project-TEXMED- intends: to find out appropriate and eco-sustainable solutions to problems of conservation and restoration of the Euro-Med Textile Heritage; to transfer the project results to the final users. Such ambitious targets will be achieved through: integration of research activities on advanced, different but complementary research topics, simultaneously considered and carried out by a multidisciplinary team; training of curators, restorers, etc. Thus, expected results are: new formulations and innovative technologies (free of toxic and/or harmful solvents) for the conservation and restoration of textiles; non-destructive methodologies for identifying nature, origin, colour, dye and manufacturing of fibres composing textiles; ad hoc treatments toward exhibition of textiles stored at Museums, Art Galleries, etc. in the Euro-Med Area
