“If it’s too hot to wear your fur- it’s time to store it!”
Many fur coats are tucked at the back of the wardrobe for more than 8 months a year. Our simple rule is if it’s too hot to wear it, it must be put in the cold to store it. Cold storage prolongs the life of fur so the longer it’s in cold storage, the better.
Keep the life and glamour in your furs by protecting them from moth damage and from drying out. We maintain the condition of your furs by keeping them in a constant temperature controlled environment to protect them from factors that can harm them when not stored correctly.
As the temperature decreases, molecules slow down and the less molecular activity the slower the bio-degradation process, therefore this keeps the skins supple and stops them drying out and losing their fur. The same principle applies to the natural oils, the cooler the garment the slower the natural oils evaporate and these are necessary to keep the skins soft and supple. Once the oils are depleted from the fur or leather, it can tear as easily as tissue paper.
When transported to and from clients’ houses and the storage facility, the garments are always carried in a breathable garment bag as fur should never be packaged in plastic as this crushes the fur and can lead to shedding. When in cold storage, the furs are stored freely without garment bags to maximise the benefits cold storage provides.
