HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR FUR:
- Never comb or brush furs, just shake them out.
- Never leave a fur near heat because it causes both fur and leather to become brittle.
- During warm weather, furs need to be protected from heat, humidity and insects, such as moths. They should be placed in modern storage vaults where temperature and humidity (34 °F and less than 40%) are kept constant.
- Never mothproof furs with chemical sprays. To avoid moths be sure to store them under the auspices of a furrier. Never store your fur with moth balls, it will dry your garment out.
- Furs need to be cleaned regularly (at least yearly) and only by a fur specialist who really knows how to clean furs. Professional cleaning removes dirt, enlivens the leather and rejuvenates the luster. It will prolong the life of a fur garment.
- Since minor problems may become major problems, have any small rips or worn areas repaired immediately by a reputable furrier.
- Be certain that you have adequate insurance with up-to-date appraisals on each fur garment that you own. Most likely your Homeowner’s will not adequately cover your garments unless there is a specific rider to the basic policy. If you require a written appraisal on your fur or if you are interested in our year-round insurance and storage, we will be happy to help you.
- If furs are damp, hang them to dry in a cool place with circulating air – not in a closet. Rain or snow won’t damage a fur if this drying procedure is initiated immediately. However, if the fur is soaked through, take it immediately to a reliable furrier for proper treatment.
- Use broad-shouldered hangers when hanging a fur garment in a closet and allow space to prevent it from being crushed or creased. If you place your fur in a garment bag, it should be a porous garment bag so that the fur is allowed air flow. Fur garments should not be constantly stored in a garment bag as this may crush the fur. Remove your fur from the bag and allow it to hang freely.
- Never store your fur in a plastic bag. Air cannot circulate and the leather will dry out. Given reasonable care, your furs will last for many enjoyable years.
- Don’t pin flowers or jewelry on your furs and try not to wear heavy jewelry where it can rub against the fur.
- Use belts and hooks with discrimination as they can be points of wear. Always be sure to unhook and/or unbutton furs before sitting to prevent pulling or tearing.
- Never allow perfume, hairspray, or makeup to come into direct contact with furs. The alcohol content in these products will dry the leather and stiffen the guard hairs.
- Car upholstery should be covered with a smooth cloth to prevent damage to your fur. Car upholstery can grab the guard hairs on your garment and pull them out when you leave your seat.
