This paper presents and explores 3D techniques for analyzing historic textile fragment. The textile fragment piece examined throughout this paper originates from the English National Trust archive held in the collection at Claydon House. The aim is to utilize data collected with a combination of both 2D pattern software and state-of-the-art 3D technology to both recreate and reconstruct a compelling and highly realistic representation of historic fragment. The process starts with investigation of the textile construction. Textile fragments will be incomplete and/or have a level of deterioration therefore various recording techniques are to be explored. A combination of both photography and 3D scanning technology will be utilized throughout the methodology to accurately record the digital data.
