The preoccupation for textile conservation has always existed due to the destruction that use, wrong storage, parasites and fibre deterioration cause in the pieces. Traditionally, textiles were carefully looked after to extend its life, therefore the use and throw culture shouldn’t be common practice. If we retook old traditions and practices and we adequate them to current procedures, we could lengthen the life of our garments. Moreover, there’s plenty of textile pieces that we should conserve so that future generations can learn about their past and make them an active base to build the future.
