In season, it is important to allow your garment ample space in your closet. Never keep your fur in a plastic bag as furs require proper air circulation … and always use a cloth bag when traveling or transporting your fur to and from storage.
Do not sit too long on your fur garment as this may lead to unsightly crushing. Refrain from excessive use of shoulder straps while wearing your fur, as this too will lead to pre-mature wear. If your fur gets wet, shake it off and let it dry naturally. Applying heat can cause both fur and leather to dry out. If your fur gets drenched, it needs special attention ASAP!
Be sure to access proper annual care including professional cleaning. This process replenishes essential oils necessary for the longevity of your fur. Make sure to mend any small tears immediately as delaying a repair can lead to the expense of replacing pelts.
Your furs, leathers, shearlings and fine outerwear will provide you years of enjoyable wear when they are professionally conditioned and stored. Each spring, store your garments in a temperature and humidity-controlled vault. Keep your garments away from heat, humidity and moths. The smell of both moth and cedar balls often adheres to fur, and creates unpleasant odors, but proper conditioning can remove most odors.
