Vintage Bridal Gowns
Vintage bridal requires that extra care and at Moline Kronberg we know how to process this vintage pieces, Many times, the gown yellows all over and you may also notice brown stained areas. Unfortunately, certain stains may not be able to be removed one hundred percent but they will lighten. Heirlooms also normally require what we call a ‘restoration’ or a wet cleaning. Basically, a garment will be placed in a bath with a very gentle solvent. As we take a very gentle approach, it may take a few soaks to lift discoloration to a shade we are satisfied with without distressing the fabric. If you are planning on wearing an heirloom, please figure in at least two to three weeks for the restoration process alone.
