Fashion Vintage Textile Restoration
Whether unexpectedly discovered in a basement or attic or presented as a gift from a special family member or friend, the love and attachment one feels for a treasured heirloom is difficult for most of us to put into words. The precious christening gown first worn by your great grandmother, your mother’s wedding gown worn in 1970, heirloom fine table or bed linens from a beloved aunt, or your relative’s uniform worn during the Civil War, one thing is for certain: While in your possession, your special item will be deeply cherished before lovingly being passed to yet another grateful generation.
Today, beautiful vintage couture and designer fashions are very much in vogue. A chemise style dress from the Great Gatsby era of the 1920s, with its amazing bead work, fringes, and sashes, or a 1950s Christian Dior silk faille and velvet suit with padded hips, seemingly architectural in form, vintage style garments have a timeless attraction.
Since 1956, the skilled professional technicians of Davis Imperial Cleaners have always specialized in the evaluation and restoration of heirloom, antique, and vintage treasured pieces. Offering a complimentary analysis, a restoration specialist will examine your precious item with specialized equipment and will then discuss the results of their examination, including condition, along with the areas that could be potentially problematic.
Please know that our family and staff recognize the fragile nature of heirloom, antique, and museum pieces. We understand their sentimental and/or monetary value, and it is our number one priority to protect their integrity.
