Cleaning and restoring vintage and antique quilts

Our client brought in a quilt that was handmade by her great grandmother. She estimated that the quilt was at least 80 to 90 years old.

The cotton quilt displayed all the symptoms you'd expect to find in a quilt of this age: stains, musty odor and broken threads.

Our client's primary concern was the removal of the stains and the musty odor while attempting to enhance the intensity of the colors.

The before and after photos reflect the transformation.
