American Indian headdress

This week we are on-site restoring an American Indian headdress for the Carbon County Museum in preparation for a new exhibit that opens on June 15th.  The conservation treatment includes stabilizing the textiles, which are fragile due to insect damage, and cleaning the feathers and other elements.

Conservation treatment of an American Indian war bonnet made with textile, leather, and eagle feathers.
