- This specialized publication delves into the dedicated ongoing and intensive work necessary to preserve Heritage Malta’s unique Maltese National Costumes and Textile Collection. The artefacts illustrated are just a selection of the over 900 pieces within the collection, reflecting the society that produced them, some even dating to the 4th and 5th centuries. The publication ranges from handling and caring of these historic artefacts, to the hard yet delicate work it entails for the preservation and protection of such varied materials, to the storage methods - many times in-house custom-made support - and the materials used.
