Subject: Polyester crepeline

Polyester crepeline

From: Nana Jonsson <nj<-at->

I work as Textile Conservator at Langelands Museum, DK. My problem
is that the fabric I'm used to use for supporting fragile fabrics
such as silk flags/banners are no longer produced by the company
called SEFAR in Switzerland. The fabric, a polyester crepeline, was
called SEFAR TR-Fabrics ('Textile Restoration), approximately 13
g/m2 and thickness of 85 micrometer.

Another Danish Textile Conservator has tried to bye a stock from a
company in England called Plastkok with no luck. So I would like to
know if any other textile conservator or any conservator at all know
a similar kind of fabrics I can use instead and where I can purchase
