Zenzie Tinker Conservation provides a complete range of conservation treatments for historic, modern and contemporary textiles. We also undertake bespoke display and storage solutions.
Established in 2003, our expert team of conservators work to the highest technical, ethical and aesthetic standards.
“What we conserve is a statement of what we respect, who we are and who we wish to be. Conservation not only sustains and refreshes the values of the past – giving us an understanding of where we have come from – but also reflects our values for the present and the future.”
– ‘It’s a Material World: Caring for the Public Realm’ by John Holder and Samuel Jones.
Our large studio is located in the heart of Brighton’s creative district. Newly fitted out with a wide range of specialist equipment, we provide a top quality service for all your conservation and collections care needs.
