William Clark & Sons is delighted to introduce a new range of Archival Linen fabrics.
The new range of Archival Linen fabric has been developed for long-term conservation solutions. The 100% linen fabric has been treated without the use of bleach and is assisted by neutrally adjusted pH mixes.

Conservation of Bindings and Bound Materials
The Repair and Aero linen can be used to reinforce the original sewing of bound materials and is an ideal fabric to use on the spine, lining and hinging of books.
Navy & Brown Box Linen
The Navy and Brown Box linen is renowned for its strength. Previously known as “Islandreagh Linen”, the fabric is used by The Ashmolean Museum and The British Library.
11056 Navy & Brown Box Linen is 122cms wide, sold in 25mt rolls or cut lengths
Archival Storage Boxes
The Navy and Brown Box linen can be used for conservation repair and the production of archival storage boxes. Objects of historic or aesthetic value should be kept in archival storage boxes in order to retain their condition and to prevent further deterioration.
The Navy and Brown Box linen is acid-free and ideal for safe, long-term storage and preservation of historic items. The durability and strength of the fabric guarantees a robust structure that will protect any precious object housed inside.
We are committed to providing exclusive archival linen for archivist and conservation field and welcome any recommendations or requests to provide specific items. We have our own production facility, which in itself can be dated back to the early 18th century, and we take great pride in producing useful, quality products.
