A fabric wardrobe is an inexpensive and convenient option for storing clothing during off-seasons or in locations within the home that require the clothing to be protected from moisture, dirt, bugs, and so on. Choosing the best wardrobe is a matter of first determining what your needs are, where you will place the wardrobe, and whether you want a freestanding fabric wardrobe or a hanging one. Once you have determined your needs, you will need to think about what type of material you want for your wardrobe. Canvas is one of the most common options, though nylon and other synthetic materials are also available.

The advantages of a canvas fabric wardrobe include durability and aesthetic appeal, though it can be somewhat susceptible to mold and mildew damage if it is stored in a damp place. Many canvas wardrobes feature a heavy duty zipper that makes accessing the clothing inside much easier. The zipper will help keep out dirt and bugs that may otherwise damage the garments within as well. If the fabric wardrobe will be stored in a place where it is likely to come in contact with other hard objects regularly, canvas is a good choice for durability.

Other synthetic materials are thinner and lighter weight than canvas, and they are often less expensive as well. They may not be as durable as canvas, however, so some care will need to be taken to ensure the wardrobe is not damaged. If you will be storing the wardrobe in a closet that is used regularly, synthetic materials are a good choice because they are lightweight, inexpensive, and sometimes even more compact in. Think about buying a fabric wardrobe that features a clear plastic window as well so you can see the contents inside the wardrobe without having to open it up to search for a particular piece of clothing.

The two most common variants on the fabric wardrobe are freestanding units and hanging units. Freestanding units feature a metal frame with canvas or synthetic materials tightly stretched around it. The freestanding unit will feature feet or casters for a solid base. A hanging wardrobe will feature hooks like clothes hangers at the top of the unit, and like freestanding units, the hanging fabric wardrobe will feature a metal or plastic frame to give the wardrobe shape. Consider which option will work best for your applications before purchasing.
