Textile Storage for Museums

Textiles come in several forms, including rolled textiles, hanging garments, and delicate textiles that are best stored flat. Museum textile storage racks, shelves, cabinets, and drawers provide a safe and controlled environment for storing textile artifacts. No matter what type of textile you are storing will determine how to best protect them from dust, sunlight, insects, water, and other environmental hazards. Below is information on the different categories of textile storage. These products are mobile-ready and will mount onto moveable compact storage systems in the future.

Hanging StorageHanging garments, uniforms, costumes, wardrobes, and clothing is the best way to store some artifacts. These metal shelving units with garment rods can be open shelving, partially closed shelving, or have doors added to protect clothing wardrobes further from damaging light, insects, and other threats.

Rolled Storage Museum Rolled Storage is an effective way to store historical rugs, carpets, tapestries, quilts, and fabrics. This type of storage prevents creasing and folding, damaging the textile and affecting its appearance. Museum Rolled Storage also helps to protect the material from insects, dust, and other contaminants. When properly stored, a fabric will retain its shape and color.

Flat StorageMuseum Flat Storage is a great way to store historical flags, gloves, and other valuable and delicate textiles in acid-free boxes, shelving drawers, or flat file cabinets.
