About Heritage Garment Preservation

Our History

Heritage Garment Preservation was founded in 2000 to provide expert wedding dress cleaning and museum quality wedding dress preservation to brides in the San Francisco area. The business grew to serve all the United States and a few customers from outside the US (Canada, Australia, England, and Germany, to name a few.) In December of 2016 HGP moved to Tyler Texas and joined with The Cleaning Company, a prestigious dry-cleaner with excellent skills in wedding dress care.

Our Research

Determined to preserve each wedding gown with the best preservation method, Kathy Wright, the business founder did extensive research on garment preservation used by museums, such as the Smithsonian in Washington D. C. and The Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

Mrs. Wright also studied various cleaning methods and solvents used by dry-cleaners for bridal gown cleaning to determine the safest and most effective way to clean gowns. All of this research has been compiled into a brief (but quite comprehensive) Wedding Dress Cleaning and Preservation Guide that will help you make an informed decision on your wedding dress care.

Our Commitment

Over sixteen years and thousands of wedding dresses later, HGP’s commitment to provide the finest care for your heirloom garments has not wavered. We continually research new methods and treatments to clean, restore, protect and give your treasured garment the best possible care.
