  • CLEAN-UP OPERATION Conservation at the The Royal Manufactures of Tapestry, De Wit in Belgium⠀
⠀
If the restoring of paintings is meticulous and time consuming, think how much harder it is to repair antique tapestries with their sheer size and transportation problems. The Royal Manufactures of Tapestry, De Wit in Belgium however, undaunted by these considerations, has been dealing with tapestries since its foundation in 1889. Nowadays their staff routinely collect tapestries from leading museums and collectors world-wide and bring them safely ensconced in tubes, to the workshops for conservation. The vogue for tapestries in aristocratic house and royal courts peaked in the sixteenth century (the English crown had 2,450 of them) when they were far more valuable than paintings. Unsurprisingly, those, which have survived, have in many cases, undergone interim interventions which have not always been beneficial. In fact as well as the decomposition of old silk weft threads from exposure to light and that of dark wool weft threads due to the use of chemical mordants, the most serious damage comes from such treatments as rubbing with bread to refresh ‘decaied colors,’ painting in lost details, patching and even gluing in additional sections. All this can be learned on a visit to De Wit’s establishment in the attractive and spacious building of the old Refuge of Tongelo Abbey in Mechelen. There, An Volckaert, the Academic Advisor and Yvan Maes De Wit, the President and grandson of the founder, take visitors through some of the stages of their world famous conservation programme.⠀

  • Silk pillowcase ✨
.
Every beauty addict is always looking for new ways to improve their routine and promote gorgeous healthy skin and hair. While we often think a lot about the products we apply to our hair and scalp, we don’t often think so much about the materials they interact with. Using a silk pillowcase for hair is one of the ways you can fight these invisible beautify foes. Rather than letting your strands mattify and break on course fabrics while you sleep at night, satin or silk pillowcases encourage the stands to lie flat and glide over the surface. This results in the cuticle lying flat and the hair looking shiny and smooth in the morning.

  • A colorful, personalized tallit for a beautiful Bat Mitzvah. Such an honor to be part of this simcha- especially when I've known this young lady since birth! Mazal Tov Ruby! This tallit was difficult to photograph, but you can sense its spirit by scrolling through the pics and seeing some of the process (including my daughter helping tye on the tzitzit- which, by the way, is halachically permissable if you know how).
