It's your Wedding Gown, so the choice is simple. Only the very best will do. You may choose Museum Hanging Method, or Museum Quality Boxed Application.
While you and your knight in shining Armani are honeymooning, we will use our advanced environmental technology to clean and preserve your modern heirloom. Your gown will be waiting for your return.
Your Wedding Gown is meticulously cared for at Clothesline Cleaners. Our gentle and thorough process cleans your gown without harsh or toxic solvents. Pearls, beads, sequins and other adornments are gently and harmlessly cleaned. If you choose to create your modern heirloom, we provide the finest Museum Quality Archival Preservation. Every detail is guided by the standards used at the Smithsonian Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, and forty different museums, historic houses and fashion designers.
The Archives of the exhibits of Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Giorgio Armani and the Costume Institute of MOMA prefer our method.
The objective is to place the gown in as relaxed a state as possible in a neutral, breathable environment. The gown is surrounded by layers of inert materials to protect against environmental contaminants.
We begin with the chemically inert archival box: it is double wall corrugated, adhesive free, lignen free, neutral pH, and it has excellent strength characteristics exceeding archival quality requirements. The paper is lignen free, neutral pH quality, and buffered against acid migration. The unfinished organic cotton muslin liner is placed into the archival box and surrounds your gown for further protection. The archival tissue is lignen free, neutral pH and photo activity tested. Your gown will breathe, warding off vermin, mold, mildew and acid.
A family treasure is preserved forever.
Your clothes are as individual as you are
