Art/Literary - Textiles / Clothing / Fashion / Garments deterioration list
Spanish term or phrase: Galería
On a list of different fabrics and garments, I found deteriorations such as discolouration, wrinkles, loose threads, darns, pulvurence, etc. One of these deterioration comes as "Galerías" and it is on the same list as Deyecciones, oxidación, manchas de hongos, y ataque de insectos. And is considered Ataque Biológico.

I have no idea how to translate GALERIAS as I havent found a definition in Spanish.

Any help would be much appreciated.

English translation:termite infestation
Explanation:
Please see the references in Spanish and English. The English reference refers to wood but I believe that the same would apply to clothing. They like to hide!!
