Archival Garment Storage Boxes
Important to me
Many years ago my great grandmother made two dresses for my mother. They are works of art. Completely made by hand, with tiny little stitches and intricate detailing. 48 years ago, I hand made my daughters christening gown, complete with slip and bonnet. Several years later I hand knit my son's christening suit.
I was going to give these precious memories away, I had no idea how to store them properly. Then I saw this box while looking for something else at the Container Store. My precious memories are now packed carefully away so that my great grand children might appreciate them.

Purchased this product to store some family heirlooms. Having worked in the museum industry, I was looking for something that would be safe for textiles as well as paper products. These boxes have ample room to nicely and securely, but not too tightly wrap and protect my items.
Note - the boxes that I bought come with acid free tissue paper which I was not aware of. Check to see if there is tissue included in the box you are buying before buying the separate package of acid-free tissue. The good thing about the extra tissue package is that the sheets of paper are HUGE!

sturdy boxes that really fit the bill!
I bought a few of these boxes, not for garments but for photo albums, loose large and smaller photos and they really organized a huge problem into three neat, safe boxes. Until I can organize these photos I've worried that they were deteriorating where we had them. Now that they are all in these acid free boxes with tissue between layers I don't worry at all. I know they are safe until I can get to them, and then I'll have lots of room to store the finished albums! thank you Container Store!

Great Size Box...
Larger box than I thot, but can put some other items in . Can't tell you about how box/tissue preserves...as haven't had it long enough. This is a wonderful item to preserve things that can't be washed/dry cleaned.. At least it makes me feel like I'm doing something good w/my Grandmother's dancing gown (circa 1920's)
