Laundry bags are the perfect solution for storing diffusion and background material

Having been around for a few years, I have acquired a number of backgrounds, silks, diffusers and fabrics. In cleaning and purging the studio I needed a solution for storing all of the backgrounds that needed to be stuffed. I don’t fold my fabric backgrounds I just stuff them. It keeps the wrinkles pristine. I just use laundry bags that I purchased from IKEA to hold all the different backgrounds. It is a cheap and easy solution. It lets us seen what’s in the bag. We made little ID tags from gaff tape with dimensions and cable tied it to one of the corners of the background.

They then all get piled on the storage shelves with the ID tags facing out so we can easily find what we are looking for. It really helped in organizing all the fabrics.
