Always use broad shouldered or padded hangers when hanging furs. Allow space to prevent the furs from being crushed.
Never store your fur in a plastic bag were air cannot circulate; it causes the leather to dry out. Loosely cover your fur with a cotton bag or sheet. (Use materials that breathe)
Unbutton your coat when sitting, this prevents tears and undo wear. In case of a tear, have repairs made immediately.
Never leave a fur (wet or dry) near heat. This will cause both fur and leather to become brittle.
Hanging wet furs to dry in a cool place with circulating air, not in a closet. A little rain or snow won’t injure furs; however, if a fur is soaked through, it requires prompt treatment by reliable furrier.
Never moth-proof your garment or use insecticides or sprays on the fur.
Do not use dry-cleaning fluids on furs. Have them professionally cleaned regularly by a fur specialist. This prolongs the life of the fur.
Avoid combing or brushing furs. Occasionally shake your fur coat gently to keep it clean and to restore its natural shape and fullness.
Do not carry heavy packages or handbags where they rub against the fur and cause wear spots. Don’t pin flowers or jewelry on your garment. Avoid putting perfume on the fur (alcohol dries leather and stiffens fur).
