Case Dressing Fabrics


+ Click For Details

Before finally installing an artifact into its sealed exhibit case, it's important to determine that no harm will be caused to the artifact by the materials already present in the case. This is why Medite is preferred over almost any sort of plywood or why paints being used should pass testing for harmful off-gassing. Likewise, case dressing fabrics can sometimes cause problems within the closed case environment - problems leading to tarnishing or corrosion of artifacts. We currently offer two types of fabric that we've submitted, with successful results, to Oddy testing.

The Case Dressing Fabrics are custom-ordered and non-returnable. Please choose carefully before placing your order. To avoid disappointment, please allow at least two weeks for delivery. Shipments are oversize and incur extra UPS shipping costs.

Sample rings are available for both Linens and Plain Weave.

We're very excited to have found these beautiful linens and linen/cotton blends from Poland. They are very similar to Belgian linens at a fraction of the cost. They are an ideal fabric for dressing case interiors and covering blocks and are available in six neutral colors, without sizing or fire-retardants, ranging from black to beige to white.

Sold by the yard / 5 yard minimum.
Fabric is a custom order and not returnable. 

Oversized shipping applies for this item.
We'll add (1) Oversize Charge to your cart for every 1 - 60 yards per color. 

We've done our best to accurately depict our colors. However, we can't guarantee colors over the internet & strongly advise ordering a sample ring. We try our best to ensure color consistency, but due to the natural fibers, some fabric lots may vary slightly.

Plain Weave Fabric


+ Click For Details

Manufactured by one of New England's oldest textile mills, this fabric has a relatively large weave when looked at up close. Once installed, the effect is a wash of solid color that has a subtle texture to give it depth. And for us installers, when you have to move an object (therefore leaving a hole behind where the old mount came out) this particular weave is very forgiving. That has saved the day for us more than once!

It is also made from 100% recycled material, and biodegrades just like natural fibers.

The Plain Weave offers the following advantages:

- The weave is perfectly straight and true.
- The fabric is non-directional.
- Polyester has a low coefficient of moisture absorption.
- Computer color matching insures color consistency.

66" wide. Sold by the yard / 5 yard minimum.
