Most Government or Institutional Archives Reject Gifts of Non-documentary Objects Unless They Have a Documentary Value

 Fashion design is generally considered to have started in the 19th century with Charles Frederick Worth who was the first designer to have his label sewn into the garments that he created.

Before the former draper set up his maison couture(fashion house) in Paris, clothing embroidery digitizing design and creation was handled by largely anonymous seamstresses, and high fashion descended from that worn at royal courts.
Worth's success was such that he was able to dictate to his customers what they should wear, instead of following their lead as earlier dressmakers had done.
The term couturier was in fact first created in order to describe him.
While all articles of clothing from any time period are studied by academics as costume digitizing design, only clothing created after 1858 is considered as fashion design.
Objects that can be identified unambiguously as quipus first appear in the archaeological record in the first millennium AD.
They subsequently played a key part in the administration of the Kingdom of Cusco and later Tahuantinsuyu, the empire controlled by the Incan ethnic group, flourishing across the Andes from c. 1100 to 1532 AD.
As the region was subsumed under the invading Spanish Empire, the use of the quipu faded from use, to be replaced by European writing systems.
However, in several villages, quipu continued to be important items for the local community, albeit for ritual rather than recording use.
It is unclear as to where and how many intact quipus still exist, as many have been stored away in mausoleums, 'along with the dead.'
In library classification systems, the term realia refers to three-dimensional objects from real life such as coins, tools, and textiles, that do not easily fit into the orderly categories of printed material.
They can be either man-made (artifacts, tools, utensils, etc.) or naturally occurring (specimens, samples, etc.), usually borrowed, purchased, or received as donation by a teacher, library, or museum for use in classroom instruction or in exhibits. 
Archival and manuscript collections often receive items of memorabilia such as badges, emblems, insignias, jewelry, leather goods, needlework, etc., in connection with gifts of personal papers.
When accepting large bequests of mixed objects they normally have the donors sign legal documents giving permission to the archive to destroy, exchange, sell or dispose in any way those objects which, according to the best judgement of the archivist, are not manuscripts (which can include typescripts or printouts) or are not immediately useful for understanding the manuscripts.
