Repair & Restoration
Our approach to restoration and repair is to first do no harm: we strive to avoid alteration of original materials whenever possible, and to match the quality of original work with contemporary techniques and technologies. This goal is based on museum-level objectives of conservatorship and has contributed to the continued professional viability of otherwise critically damaged bows, historical and contemporary.
