The TTT Group

Museums, religious temples and private institutions around the world house very fine and diverse collections of textile objects. In the past decades, their significance as witnesses of old cultures and the daily life of their people have been highlighted by new research methods, which have highly contributed to an increased awareness of their artistic and historical value. The TTT comprises a network group of researchers that encourages the interdisciplinary combination of science, conservation and art history for the study of historical textiles, costumes and related materials.
