Saving framed silk art out of the frame

I have silk pictures framed as well as a red silk fabric that my parents had framed and on it wedding guests had written out their names. These frames items were passed down to me, however, the space in my home is limited, and there is not the option to hang them. I would love to take them out of the frames, but afraid to ruin the fabrics. Any suggestion as to how I can store these items out of the frames so as to save space, but also save the memory of them and protect the fabrics? Can they be folded? Thank you

Oh, Samra. Don't worry. You can take them out of the frames and preserve in correct ways.
Before you put it into a storage box or wardrobe, you are advised to use clean paper or cloth to warp the silk completely. Then put it into a plastic & sealed bag.
Notably, the storage places must be dry and clean in order to avoid moth-eaten and mildew.
