Preserve jewelry, photos, textiles
with Acid-Free Tissue Paper

Whether you've found brittle lace or discolored quilts in antique stores or your grandmother's attic, you know the value of protecting stored textiles. The pang of lost chances hits you as you think, "Oh why didn't they take better care of this?" So this year, this generation, as you store stitched ornaments or put away unfinished needlework until you can get them framed, take the right steps to preserve the keepsakes.

Over the years, we have worked with many museums and galleries on textile restoration and conservation, and one of the most important ways to protect anything of value starts with the material in which it's wrapped. Instead of harmful plastic bags, old pillow cases, or open-air exposure, store needlework with a protective layer of Acid-Free Tissue Paper. It's the same material used by conservationists, and it can preserve your valuables too.

Why acid-free? Isn't all tissue paper acid-free? Actually, it's not, so put aside that dollar-store bargain stack of tissue. Acid in normal tissue paper can transfer to textiles over time and cause them to become discolored, brittle, or tarnished. The specially made Acid-Free Tissue Paper, however, is neutral, unbuffered, and therefore the safest way to store textiles including cotton, wool, silk, linen and even real metal threads. It's safe for your jewelry, photos, and other heirlooms as well.

After all of the time and love you put into each handmade creation, make sure they don't become brittle or stained over the years. A protective layer of Acid-Free Tissue Paper can make all the difference in the world.

How to order Kreinik Acid-Free Tissue Paper: Look for it in needlework shops, quilt stores, Keepsake Quilting catalog, or online stores.  Or order from Kreinik.com:
