This article presents strategies for conserving and storing historical textiles that have deteriorated from exposure to uncontrolled env-ironmental conditions. The focus of this study was to document the treatment and storage process of two specific pieces: an Omani black velvet dress and a flower-printed scarf. Various forms of det-erioration were observed, including dust, food and bodily oil stains, and snags. The conservation treatment processes involved repairing the snags, cleaning the oil stains around the neck and arms of the dress, and vacuuming the two objects based on their condition. To provide support, a new fabric was used for the textile. Addi-tionally, a storage system was implemented to ensure long-term preservation. Throughout the entire conservation process, thorough photographic documentation was carried out.
