Fur needs to breathe, so allow it to hang freely on a broad-shouldered or padded coat hanger. We advise you not to store your fur in a synthetic garment bag, use a garment bag that allows the fur garment to breath. To avoid any fading, keep it away from direct sunlight.
When your fur is wet from rain or snow, simply shake it and hang it in a dry and well-ventilated room. Avoid any direct heat sources, as they will damage the fur. Once it is dry, shake it and it will be ready to wear again.
As your fur is to last for decades, do yourself the favour, and have it cleaned by a professional once every other year, maybe once a year, depending on the use of it. Dirt and pollutants will be removed during the cleaning process and the leather side will be revitalised by having the necessary oils added to it.
We do not advice you to mothproof or try to clean a fur garment without the necessary professional skills, as no kind of home treatment can work as a substitute for professional cleaning. Feel free to give us a call to help you locate your nearest fur cleaning.
Always have small rips or tears repaired by a furrier immediately to prevent more expensive repairs later on.
Avoid spraying any kind of chemical onto your fur garments. This also includes perfume and hairspray. Never comb or brush fur garments.
During the summer or if you are not going to be using your fur for a long period of time, it is advisable to store your fur with a professional furrier or in a fur storage facility, where it will be kept at the right temperature. If you prefer to store your fur at home, choose a dark, cool and ventilated room.
