Abstract:
The research includes a treatment and restoration of a piece of textile from the Abbasid period which decorated with writing. It was stored in the Egyptian Textile Museum. The piece has been found in a severe damage case that led to the weak fibers. It has many missing areas, stains and dirt. Scanning electron microscopy was used to analyze the fibers to identify them and to characterize their deterioration. UV Analysis was used to identify the type of dye and identify the type of adhesive which the piece pasted with it on a free acid paper. The piece was treated by supporting it by using needle work. Finally the piece was prepared for museum display.
