Costumer Advice

FUR CARE

 

Fur is a organic, sustainable product that need special care its not like most other product you sell. 
To ensure the longevity of your costumers garment, we strongly advise you to carefully read the 
following information and recommendations:

 

 

  • When a fur coat is not in use for longer periods of time - such as during summertime - it is preferable to store the fur with a furrier. He or she will have temperature, humidity and light-controlled storage facilities. If it is for some reason not possible to store the fur coat with a furrier, then try to keep it in as cold and dark a place as possible
  • A fur coat must be cleaned annually by a fur specialist - NOT a dry cleaner. Dirt and pollutants will be removed during the cleaning process, and the leather side will be revitalised by having the necessary oils added. 
  • Never attempt to mothproof a fur coat without the necessary professional skills. No kind of home treatment can work as a substitute for professional cleaning.  
  • If storing a fur coat at home, avoid leaving it hanging in direct sunlight or in a brightly lit area, as the light can cause the fur to oxidise or change colour especially the light colour tones.

  • Never hang a fur coat on a wire hanger. Instead, you must use a broad-shouldered hanger. Furthermore, you must always make sure that the fur coat has enough space in the wardrobe so it will not be crushed.

  • Recommend your clients to store their fur coats in cloth garment bags while travelling. Never use plastic bags or rubber-lined bags, as these will prevent air from circulating and the fur from breathing.  

  • Always have small rips or tears repaired by a furrier immediately to prevent more expensive repairs later.

  • If a fur coat gets wet, shake it and hang it to dry in a well-ventilated room. Never place it close to hot places such as a radiator, as these will dry out the fur and leather. After the fur coat is dry, shake it again. If the fur coat is soaked, take it to a furrier to make sure that it gets proper treatment.

  • Never comb or brush fur garment.

  • Avoid spraying any kind of chemical onto fur coats. This includes perfume and hairspray.
