Preserving antique Rope Handles?

I am cleaning up a 19th century sea Captain's chest. It has the original hand-woven rope handles, but they are very dry and stiff although not rotted or moldy. They are still very sturdy, but I want to preserve/conserve them and restore strength and flexibility to the fibers if possible. Are there any means to do this? Thanks!
