This extra large archival box is ideal for storing textiles, costumes and wedding dresses with lots of fabric. Also ideal for large documents, prints and paper cuttings.
Silks, old lace, and other textiles need archival protection or they will yellow and deteriorate over time. The same goes for fragile documents prints and paper.
This costume box passes the Photographic Activity Test (P.A.T), is acid free, lignin free and is coated with a light grey coloured laminate on the outside. This laminate is abrasion, dirt and grease resistant.
