Fur Care

How To Care For Your Fur

  • Allow your fur coat or other garments proper space in your closet. Never keep your fur coat or other valuable coat in a plastic bag. Your fur jacket requires proper air circulation; Use a cloth bag when traveling or transporting your fur to and from cold storage. The smell of both moth and cedar balls often adhere to fur and create unpleasant odors.
  • Proper cleaning and conditioning of your fur coat and other garments will often remove such and most other unwanted odors.
  • Do not sit for a prolonged time on your fur coat as this may lead to premature wear.
  • Refrain from excessive use of purse straps and other shoulder straps while wearing your fur coat as this too will lead to premature wear.
  • If your fur coat gets wet, shake it off and let it dry naturally. Using heat will cause both fur and leather to dry out. If your fur item gets soaked it needs special attention by a specialist master furrier.
  • Be sure to have proper annual care including cleaning, conditioning, tightening of buttons, closures and lining and the mending of early tears – some will be invisible to you.
  • Reconditioning is a process which replenishes essential oils necessary for the longevity of your fur.
  • Mend any small tears immediately. Often times delaying a repair can lead to an expensive replacement of pelts.
