Ethnographic objects :

  • • leather goods,
  • • boxes,
  • • musical instruments,
  • • gloves, clothes,
  • • trunks, cushions,...

Sometimes made of leather, usually made of skin, ethnographic objects need meticulous conservation.

Varied decoration techniques

The conservation methods must take into account different kinds of decorations (pigments, pearls, gilding, embroidery, porcupine spikes…).

2CRC has a wide network of collaborators to act on metal, textile, wood, etc.


Objects are systematically photographed before, during and after conservation. Each object is returned with a complete documentation explaining in detail the techniques employed and the materials used.
