Where can I find acid-free boxes to store my wedding gown and vintage clothes?
Acid free boxes and tissues are essential to store your fine vintage garments, textiles and wedding gown. I asked Aaron Salik of Talas the best way to choose boxes for storage. "I would choose an acid free box of an appropriate size determined by the pieces going inside of the storage area and wrap the pieces in acid free tissue inside the box. There are two types of tissue, buffered and unbuffered. Unbuffered tissue is acceptable for almost all types of materials, where as buffered tissue
is not suitable for animal fibers such as silks or wools. If you wanted to be safe, I would recommend unbuffered tissue, as it is
acceptable across the board." Talas has many acid free boxes and tissues available on their website.
