Fur coat storage

How to store fur coats at home?

The more time a fur is in cold storage for fur coats, the longer it will last.

Our professional cold storage fur coat closets have the following characteristics:
• 35-50° Fahrenheit (2-12°Celsius) is optimal, but any temperature under 55° is worthwhile.
• Humidity controlled between 45 and 55%
 Minimal U.V. light exposure
 Aerate space for each garment
 Easily accessible (you may want your garment for an event or suddenly cold weather)

Why cold storage for a fur coat?

Moths... they thrive on wardrobes full of cashmere, wool, fur and other fabrics made from animal hair.
So this is the way to protect your clothes without resorting to mothballs.
Second reason, when temperature gets colder, molecules slow down.
In biological materials, the less molecular activity, the slower the biodegradation process.

Why humidity control?

Humidity level is important when a fur will be hanging in one place for a significant amount of time.
If the humidity is too low: dry air, natural oils in the pelts will evaporate quicker, so the garment will become dry and deteriorate.
If the humidity is too high: damp air, the pelts can rot at a fast rate.

Some tips to maintain your fur coat:

• Do not put your coat in a plastic bag or plastic: the fur can't breathe.
• Dry your wet fur naturally. Do not hang it near a heat source to dry faster.
It must be kept in a closed with the appropriate humidity.
• Do not leave your fur in the natural light or the sun: it will suffer, like any natural material, of discoloration.
