The application of silica optical fibre sensors (fibre Bragg gratings) to tapestries using a tapestry-like textile as a representative material is described. It is shown that the attachment method is crucial in the procedure and must be done without damaging the tapestry. The silica fibres are much stiffer than the tapestry yarn; the effect of this is investigated in the paper. The response of the optical fibre mounted on a tapestry like material is quantified in both quasi-static and creep conditions.
