Coptic Textiles

Private owner

The textile is very brittle having come from an excavated burial and is stained with body fluids.  Such textiles require very careful cleaning and handling to prevent loss of fibre.  It was humidified, then cleaned and prepared for long term storage on an acid-free roller housed within an acid-free box.
