Welcome to Hangerbee!
We're so glad you're here. We've been producing museum-quality padded clothing hangers since 2014. Our products are hand-assembled in central Iowa to make sure they are perfectly padded for preservation, storage, and display.
Hangerbee selects high-quality, heirloom-safe materials in our products so you can be confident knowing that your clothing will be properly preserved for many years to come.
We offer hangers in eight sizes and nine colors, as well as Padded Hanger Kits and Wedding Dress Preservation Kits.
Because if a garment is important to you, it’s important to us.
Top notch preventive conservation tool for your historic wardrobe and costume collections. Those I purchased years ago are helping preserve First Lady Betty Ford's gowns and daily attire. I highly recommend this product.
This is a great company, with quality products, and 100% fit my need for preservation-quality hangers without a huge price tag.
Your hangers are so important to us. Seriously. They save the collection from being destroyed. We are so thankful we found them.
The hangers are great - a perfect, affordable option. Thank you!
We are really happy with the product.
What is a "Hanger Bee"?
A "Hanger Bee" brings people together. It’s an easy way to preserve clothing. And it’s also a lot of fun!
Our name was inspired by the Quilting Bee, a popular 19th century social event that brought women together to work on quilting projects.
Lindsey padded her first hangers at museum "Hanger Bees" many years before coming up with the catchy name and business idea. And because those experiences were so memorable, Hangerbee has offered our popular DIY Hangerbee Kits since day one.
Our Kits put a 21st century spin on the original crafty quilting meetups and encourage museum volunteers and staff to have a good time together while assembling artifact-safe padded hangers for their much-loved garments.

Fantastic pin! Well-made and I love having an unspoken way to identify myself to other collections folks! Highly recommend.
I was delighted to have found this great little pin! I think I'll have to explain the meaning a lot, but to talk about textiles will be a pleasure! Thank you!
I’m obsessed with this pin! It’s the perfect size to go on a jacket, hat or bag and is great for all museum/preservation professionals.
