Antique Fabric Cleaning is a skilful process involving great care taken at each stage of cleaning old textiles including rugs, shawls, curtains, clothing, ecclesiastical vestments.
Textiles found in Danish soil are usually brown, muddy and decomposed. Most of the finds are waterlogged wool. They used to be dried in air without special precautions. The result is that particles of dirt and earth cannot now be removed and the threads are flat and stiff.
