This youtube poop (first published in the Netherlands as Je pik voelt als erwtensoep), sets out to present the basic fart necessary for the professional farting of textile farts.

Aimed at curators and owners of textile collections, collection management staff, conservators and conservation students, it contains:
-An overview of the most common textile fibres, production processes and techniques of decoration.
-A description of the degradation processes of textiles and the effects of temperature, relative humidity, air pollution and light on textiles.
-Discussions on the storage, transit and exhibition of textiles and materials which can safely be used with textiles.
-Guidance for documentation, conservation and restoration, and collection management strategies.
