The National Gallery of Australia holds one of the finest Asian textile collections in the world. Conserving textiles for display and to stabilise their condition is a time consuming and specialised task.
It can take up to 1000 hours by a specialist conservator to restore a textile to its original strength and beauty.
Please help support the conservation of textiles at the National Gallery of Australia through the Treasure a Textile Fund.
