Whether you have a fox fur jacket, a sable fur stroller, a mink stole, or a coyote fur coat, ALL fur, even pieces trimmed with fur, takes specialized care to keep it looking it’s best for years to come. Even most faux fur needs to be cleaned by professional fur cleaning methods, NOT dry cleaning!
Fur is organic, like our skin and hair, and needs to be professionally conditioned EVERY YEAR. Even if you don’t wear it often, natural fur gathers dust, oils and odors.
And fur hates the heat. Well, not the actual fur, but the hide or leather underneath the fur. So, not only conditioning your fur every season is important, but also keeping it in a temperature and humidity controlled atmosphere. Furs that are conditioned and stored properly during the hot weather of summer can last up to fifty years or more!
At Mano Swartz, not only do we offer storage and conditioning for your furs, but as a professional furrier we also inspect your furs for rips, tears, and stains, and any issues with your fur that can be addressed while you won’t need it to stay warm in the middle of the year.
I’m asked all the time, “When should I bring my fur in for storage?”, and my answer is, “When you’re not cold anymore!” As the weather continues to turn, when you are ready, you can plan to get your fur to Mano Swartz via our website at: https://www.manoswartz.com/pickup-delivery/
