The textile components of historic interiors are often neglected and in need of conservation and restoration. Museum Textile Services works with curators, homeowners, architects and interior designers to endure that textiles are fully analyzed, preserved, and interpreted.
From September 2001 to June 2002, Museum Textile Services participated in the restoration of historic Gillette Castle in Hadlyme, CT. Gillette Castle is the second most visited tourist destination in Connecticut. Built between 1914 and 1919 by actor William Gillette, the castle is an eclectic example of American Arts and Crafts sensibility with a darkly romantic, European flavor. See pictures here.
