Vintage and heirloom items that have yellowed or collected dust require hand-soaking and a custom cleaning process to return them to top condition. With over 100 years of expertise, we’ve perfected the painstaking methods of reviving your treasured legacy pieces.



At Peninou, we use the same heirloom preservation process as the Smithsonian Museum. After careful cleaning, we store your item in an acid-free Heirloom Preservation Storage Box with acid-free tissue and a cotton muslin liner. Museum conservators expect this process to extend textile life by up to 200 years, preserving your special memories for generations.
