How To Store Your Quality Clothing

Here at Heddels, we aim to buy less and buy better, with longevity and timeless style at the heart of our product choices. But buying better doesn’t necessarily mean that your quality goods will last forever. You have to help them along the way by caring for them with the same love and care you put into sourcing them. And a key element of that care is storing them correctly.

Awkward creases, funny smells, unwanted pests —and even sun damage — there’s a host of things to consider when choosing where to keep your garments when you’re not using them. In this article, we’re going to look at the fundamentals of storing them properly, focusing specifically on hanging and folding.

Before we get into it, a quick disclaimer: everyone will have different ways of doing things, whether it’s folding your favorite pair of jeans or conditioning your beater boots. And that’s totally cool. The goal of this piece is to share our guidance on storing your quality goods. And if you’re already a clothing care-bear, then hopefully this piece will help to refine and reinforce your knowledge. With that, let’s get into it.
