Costume Storage

Storing Costumes and Textiles

I posted this the other day on Facebook but figured it was useful enough to cross-post here too.

The Minnesota Historical Society has a great set of videos on storing heirloom textiles and clear explanations on different types of storage, acid free materials which is great if like me, you do not have a degree in textile conservation.

Part 1: Materials
Part 2: How to make padded hangers
Part 3: Storing Textiles in Boxes
Part 4: Storing flat textiles in boxes
Part 5: Storing Quilts and Coverlets
Part 6: Storing Textiles on tubes

I don’t have any antique or vintage clothing yet but I will use the padded hanger idea for my costumes.
