Moms Karla and Jennifer consulted preservation pros (a museum curator, a rare books librarian, and an archivist) as well as professional organizers to create a system that arranges and protects everything inside. Unlike that plastic bin that houses a jumble of stuff, Savor is thoughtfully designed and meant to be seen.
The sturdy cloth exterior and understated design is display-worthy, and an acid-free and lignin-free lining helps to preserve papers and photos.
Drawers make it easy to drop items into the baby edition. There are even wee envelopes for baby’s first curl or tooth, as well as folders to save sonograms and footprints. The school-age edition is all file folders to corral artwork, report cards, and letters to Santa. And the wedding version has lovely stitched envelopes (for invitations, your vows, or the reception toast) and fabric bags (protect hair pins, a garter, or dried bouquet petals).
Sweet, hand-illustrated labels help keep all those keepsakes straight. Many are pre-printed—which is a nice way to prompt you about what to save—while blank labels let you identify your own unique items.
