Museum Quality Chests
For Pristine Preservation
Careful cleaning is essential to prolonging the life of all of your family’s treasured fabric heirlooms, and our archival-quality chests offer the best protection for your precious garments and linens. Association of Wedding Gown Specialists members have six different sizes that safeguard against accidental crushing or cuts from sharp objects. In some cases our chests, unlike plastic cartons, have even survived fires! The chest was seared and charred, but the contents were safe.
For best results, never store your fabric heirlooms where there are extreme changes in heat or humidity, such as your attic or basement. Even worse, pipes could break and flood your treasured items with water.
There is never any charge to consult with our Certified Wedding Gown Specialists™ about caring for your vintage wedding gown and other vintage clothing. They can offer you ideas for redesigning the family gown for today’s ceremony, suggest ways to turn your wedding gown into a christening gown, or help you with special projects such as displaying a family gown at a reception or anniversary celebration.
