The Prince'scapotain Hat is Made of Felt Using the most Basic of Textile Techniques

 In 2004, the archaeologist Renata Peeters (of the UCL Institute of Archaeology in London) and the cultural anthropologist Frank Salomon (of the University of Wisconsin) undertook a project to conserve both the quipus in Rapaz and the building that it was in, due to their increasingly poor condition.

In 1968, the Museum of Contemporary Craft in New York City held a ground-breaking exhibition called Body Covering that focused on the relationship between technology and apparel.
The show featured astronauts’ space suits along with clothing that could inflate and deflate, light up, and heat and cool itself. 
Particularly noteworthy in this collection was the work of Diana Dew, a digitizing designer who created a line of electronic fashion, including electroluminescent party dresses and belts that could sound alarm sirens.
The persistence of ancient textile arts and functions, and their elaboration for decorative effect, can be seen in a Jacobean era portrait of Henry Frederick, Prince of Wales by Robert Peake the Elder (above).
His clothing is made of woven cloth, richly embroidered in silk, and his stockingsare knitted.
He stands on an oriental rug of wool which softens and warms the floor, and heavy curtains both decorate the room and block cold drafts from the window. 
Goldwork embroidery digitizing on the tablecloth and curtains proclaim the status of the home's owner, in the same way that the felted fur hat, sheerlinen shirt trimmed with reticella lace, and opulent embroidery on the prince's clothes proclaim his social position.
