The Kent State University Museum is a world-class destination for the study and presentation of historic and contemporary fashion, textiles and related art forms. Beautiful and unique, the textiles and clothing in the museum collection are quite fragile. Fibers begin to deteriorate the minute the cotton is plucked, the sheep is shorn or the silk cocoon is unwound. Proper storage slows deterioration by preventing hazards such as exposure to light, dust, and changes in temperature and humidity and preserves priceless artifacts for generations to come.
