A significant part of cultural heritage contains textile in some shape or form. Inspired by the recent NICAS colloquium and match day, we decided to investigate piece of textile from a left-over symposium bag with neutron tomography. The piece of cloth was folded over a few times, inspired by a discussion with Paulien Coopmans on possibilities to investigate 17th century wardrobe textile, non-invasively.
As shown in the reconstruction, the threads and patterns of the textile can be observed clearly. This example could be a showcase for neutron imaging application in textile art samples.
