Founded in 1917 by Camille Chevalier, Chevalier Conservation specializes in the restoration, conservation and cleaning of carpets, rugs, tapestries and textiles be they ancient or contemporary. These services are offered to clients be they private, institutions and museums or professionals.
In 1954 Georges Chevalier succeeds the founder and continues the tradition. Pierre Chevalier and his brother take over from their father in 1975. A result of this new management was the creation of the computerized equipment, unique in the world, for the cleaning of tapestries, the conservation studios in Aubusson, the Espace Chevalier and the Viaduc des Arts in Paris.
Nicolas Chevalier, Pierre’s son, has today taken over the running of the family firm, meanwhile continuing its development and expansion in both France and abroad.
Chevalier Conservation undertakes the care and preservation of textiles from the collections of museums and institutions from around the world (Louvre, Rheims cathedral, Museum of Capodimonte, Naples, Italy, Museum of Natural History, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil), the maintenance in situ or in the studios, of textile objects belonging to well-known hotels (The Ritz, Hotel Georges V….) and lends the same care and attention to objects owned by its private clients.
