Like an elderly loved one some vintage clothes can be very delicate and should be treated with respect.  To look after them I suggest that:

•    They should be hung on padded hangers.

•    They should never be stored in plastic bags.

•    Knitted garments should be folded, not hung.  Leather and suede should never be folded

•    Always make sure your vintage clothes are clean before you store them and any repairs

       carried out.
