Exhibition Preparation

ConText Inc provides comprehensive services for the visual appreciation of costume and textiles in both the residential and museum setting. We specialize in developing and fabricating customized solutions.

Textile Mounting

Examples of our custom mounting solutions include a two-sided "floating" mount for flat textiles, enhancing the ability to study both sides; custom dyeing of matching cloth for areas of loss; and archival padding to maintain the characteristics and alignment of the original textile.

Costume Mounting

As three-dimensional objects, historic clothing requires specific support in order to demonstrate the appropriate period profile. ConText Inc makes historically accurate supportive undergarments and archival forms to ensure proper distribution of the weight of the costume, thus preventing undue strain on the cloth and construction.
