Georgia represented the research project “Textiles from Georgia” and gained the EU Heritage prize for a scientific research. The jury has evaluated the theme and the originality of the project and paid great attention to the research about frescos. They pointed out the relationship between cultures revealed throughout the research.

Unique collection of the textiles at the Art Palace was in a very bad condition.With the Ministry of culture and Sport of Georgia and the private educational fund, Art Palace provided essential conversation and restoration of the textiles. Scientific study took place and historical textiles were survived from destruction. The goal of the project was not only to study the fabrics but also to emphasize their value and significance for the region. A group of artists and scientists worked to recreate clothes of Georgian kings, queens and noblemen based on ancient manuscripts, frescos and miniatures.

The extensive research explored the relationship and influence between Caucasian, Asian and European cultures. Georgian art has always been open to absorb something unique from various ethnic groups. The group of the scientific research had been studying royal garments, graphical forms of textiles and fresco paintings on Georgian churches and monasteries. In total more than 400 patterns and 50 historic fabrics were restored.
