    Title: Motifs and Symbols in 'Polonaise' kilims
    Author: Scibor, Adrianna
    Description: At the Paris World's Fair of 1878, visitors could view a Persian carpet created with a Polish royal family coat of arms. This type of carpet was dubbed a "Polonaise" kilim in 1878. The term, still used by many, refers to kilims actually made not in Poland, but in Persia during the Safavid era. This project will focus on motifs and symbols in "Polonaise" kilims starting from the 16th century.

  2. Textile Preservation in Historic House Museums [Download]

    Title: Textile Preservation in Historic House Museums
    Author: Murphy, MaryKate
    Description: Ideal textile preservation conditions include stable temperature and humidity, limited lighting, and no pests. Museums cannot provide perfect conditions as they display their collections to the public, and historic house museums have additional difficulty. Existing structures are often architecturally significant, and must be utilized as exhibition space for collections. The example of the Preservation Society of Newport County, Rhode Island, demonstrates how historic house museums deal with textile preservation.
