Decorative textiles were an integral part of the Palaces interior decoration before 1941. The holdings included an extensive collection of costumes dating from the 18th through the early 19th centuries with wardrobes of crown personages and imperial family members forming its most valuable portion. Today, the bulk of the Palaces textile collection includes commemorative artwork such as Russian and French tapestries from the 18th to the late 19th centuries as well as rare European and Oriental embroideries.
The Museums unique assemblage of secular and military costumes is of great historical and artistic significance. To make the restoration of valuable textiles possible, the collection includes original samples of textiles that were salvaged after World War II. The textile collection at the Gatchina Palace allows for a full scale restoration to be conducted of the lost interior decoration in the state apartments and private rooms of the palace.
