This paper presents a new methodology for reproducing historic fragment in 3D with realistic behaviour, providing users with a feel for the fragment detailing. The fragment piece originates from the English National Trust archive held in the collection at Claydon House. The aim is to utilize a combination of both 2D pattern software and state-of-the-art 3D technology to recreate a compelling and a highly realistic representation of historic fragment. The process starts with investigation of the textile construction. Textile fragments will be incomplete and/or have a level of deterioration therefore various recording techniques are to be explored. A combination of both photography and 3D scanning technology will be utilized throughout the methodology to accurately record the digital data. The equipment setting will be analyzed in order to produce an accurate working method. This paper forming part of a larger study, will specifically focus on the methodology for recording data from one fragment piece.
