MOUNTING SYSTEMS FOR ETHNOGRAPHIC TEXTILES AND OBJECTS

Gail Sundstrom Niinimaa



4 ROLL-UP BAG

A similar type of matboard support was made for the roll-up bag. Three acid-free matboard inserts for the three pockets on the bag were covered with fabric and placed in the pockets. Fine microbore Tygon tubing was used to link the inserts to the matboard support by wrapping around to the back of the board and secured by tying or stitching. The Tygon tubing is easy to tie into place and is relatively inconspicuous. The smooth round surface of the tubing provides somewhat of a cushion between the mount and the artifact. (Figure 2).
