    I recently purchased what I believe to be a 16th century Italian textile. Initially I thought it was a tapestry, but on closer inspection it seems to be needlework of some sort. The wool field is in excellent condition, but the burlap-like woven substrate is brittle and damaged around the edge.

    I want to display it in my home, and I’m looking for the best cost-effective way to safely display it.
