Suzan Meijer

Rijksmuseum
Head of Textile Conservation
Amsterdam, Netherlands
Suzan Meijer studied Textile Conservation at the State Training School for Conservators in Amsterdam (1988-1992). She started working as Textile and Upholstery conservator at the Rijksmuseum in 1993. Since 1997 she is Head of Textile Conservation. The Rijksmuseum has a very important collection of textiles, including costume, accessories, tapestries, oriental carpets and linen damasks. For many years Suzan was involved in the training of textile conservators at the State Training School for Conservators and the University of Amsterdam. Current work involves the conservation of tapestries, costume, accessories and other objects. In co-operation with conservation scientists research on technical aspects of those, such as the use of different dyes and mordants is undertaken. Special interests include upholstery and the history of conservation.
