Frequently text or words make up documentary evidence attached to textiles as labels, letters or documents either as part of the function and manufacture of the original or as later additions that are of notable relevance. Today, it is accepted wisdom that conservators, in their treatment strategies, take into account the written components, in addition to the textile, because they embody history, context or significance that contributes to the veracity and comprehension of the textile. The paper high lights the paradox that, in some cases, the existence of the text element in a textile can actually accelerate its deterioration. Moreover embracing the text in treatment proposals can preclude complete stabilisation and limit treatment choices of the textile.
