Our work for museum settings

Since 1982, we have been supplying museums with reproduction textiles, usually because appropriate period objects are not available or are too fragile for the rigors of exhibition. This allows museums to educate their visitors without jeopardizing objects in their collections. In addition, private individuals make up over half our clientele. Their names are not listed, but we can share photos of many examples if you contact us.
