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 four weeks for delivery. Shipments are oversize and incur extra UPS shipping costs.

Storage mounts, moving mounts, dust-free storage, mannequins, textile display....whatever you can think of, these “working fabrics” are a great help. We offer a selection of various muslins, flannels, stockinettes and twill tapes. The muslin, flannel and twill are unbleached, undyed, sizing-free and natural colored. The stockinette is 100% polyester in two colors: snowy white and beautiful deep black.

Samples are available upon request. Odd yardages and discounted put-ups available on our Sale page.

Flannel


+ Click For Details

100% cotton flannel, unbleached and unsized fabric, for protective padding or 'tooth' to help hold textiles of any size in place. Offered in two weights, both of which can be glued or stapled to a wedge or tube for textile positioning and protection from the substrate.

  • The 4 ounce flannel is double-napped (fuzzy on both sides), with a very nice tooth.
  • The 8 ounce flannel is napped on one side only, the other side is a twill pattern. It is yummy, creamy stuff, quite thick and should be used where more padding and more tooth is required.

The flannels are sold in pre-cut 5 yard lengths.

(So if, for example, you place an order for 2, we will ship 2 five-yard pieces)
