Old is Trendy Again with Antique Textiles!
Similar to the proverb "old is gold," antique or legacy textiles date back to a bygone era and are regarded as valuable possessions. This includes antique items, blankets, drapery, aprons, linens, and vintage clothing. Heirloom clothing refers to special attire worn by members of royal families that is transmitted from one person to the next and commands a premium price on the antique clothing market. These textiles can be manufactured in other ways except by hand as well. To keep their value, historic fabrics need to be maintained and conserved for the future. Sites like eBay are exploring emerging markets as buyers get more aware of Antique textiles.
