As preservation specialists, we are trained in the art of wedding dress cleaning.
Our work begins with a complete inspection and testing of your dress. We analyse fabrics, dyes, and weaves, and note ornaments and their composition. We then determine which cleaning method is the best for your dress.
We ensure that fabrics keep their shape and do not discolour. We also make sure that embellishments (beads, sequins, and other trimmings) remain affixed.
Using sophisticated testing techniques, we can identify stains and spills – even those you can’t see. We then remove them before cleaning without causing harm to any fibres.
This is important, because certain stains will oxidise over time if left untreated. For example, sugar stains (like those caused by champagne) and chloride salts (perspiration). These can appear as brown spots months or even years later, causing irreversible fabric deterioration.
