Taking care of your fur coat

When you are the lucky owner of a fur coat, you want to keep it forever, right? So, you must know: without proper maintenance, you may have to replace your fur coat within a couple of years.

We know that a woman in love with her fur coat, like you, wants to preserve the quality of her elegant item. And we are about to show you how.

When winter comes…

…and you wear your fur coat, or jacket, or cape, you may choose to hang it in the closet.

Our advice: Keep the coat on a wide hanger in a closet, with enough space for the coat to hang freely. Avoid storing your fur coat in humid or heated spaces. Humidity may cause fur to rot, and direct exposure to heat over time dries out the oils in the coat, potentially leaving the fur brittle.

When it’s hot outside

If you don’t want to take it to fur storage facilities, that charge a fee to store your fur seasonally or year-round, do it yourself a fur storage at home. How? Taking extra care with its delicate nature. Do not store your fur coat in plastic, because air cannot circulate and contact with the plastic may cause breakage in the fur. Store your coat and let it hang loosely in a dark, cool, dry area. Be sure to cover your coat with a cotton protective cover, especially during warm weather months.

Be aware!

Sunlight and compression can damage or discolor the hairs. If it gets wet, simply hang the coat in an open space (not touching anything) and allow it to dry.

The fur jewel from the closet

In the closet, your coat should always be hung on a broad, sturdy padded hanger to keep the shoulders from loosing their shape. The neck of the hanger should be long enough to keep the collar of the coat away from the hanging rod. Follow these tips to keep your fur coat pristine so you can enjoy it for as long as possible. Remember: A well-treated fur can last for a lifetime. Now, enjoy the rest of the snowy season!
