Caring for Wedding Dresses

Te Papa has a nice article on Caring for Your Wedding Dress by textile conservator Anne Peranteau. Storing textiles in an acid-free box is preferable to storing them in bags. Creases and wrinkles can be avoided if using rolled acid-free tissue paper or even unbleached cotton fabric to pad out the garment.

We're open Wednesdays and Sundays, 2pm-4pm, and by request. Your comments are always welcome!
