AFTER CARE

Fur needs to breathe.
Hang your fur article on a broad or padded hanger, allow it to hang freely and do not store in garment bag or any synthetic material. Direct sun and spotlight may cause colour to fade.

Rain or snow does not cause any problem. Just shake your wet garmented and hang in a well-ventilated and dry room while avoiding direct heat sources and high temperatures, both these are damaging to fur and leather. Once the fur is dry, shake it again.

Depending on how much you wear it, your fur should be dry-cleaned once a year or every two years by a fur cleaner.

Fur travels easily. Fold it before putting in your suitcase and simply shake it upon your arrival.

During warm weather, or if you don’t need your fur for an extended period of time, store your fur with a professional furrier or fur storage facility. Should you prefer to keep it at home, choose a dark, cool ventilated area.
