Fur Storage

Furs coats in New YorkSTORAGE AND CLEANING BY A PROFESSIONAL FURRIER IS VITALLY IMPORTANT TO YOUR FUR

A fur coat exposed to heat and humidity will be slightly stiffer as it ages, since its leather has lost some of its natural oils and dried out a bit. Eventually this drying will lead to cracking of the leather and excessive fur loss due to shedding.  Protect your investment, store your coat with a professional furrier every summer.

Professional fur storage is the most important thing you can do to keep your fur looking beautiful and keeps it in good shape for many enjoyable years to come.

Your basement does not offer the proper conditions for fur storage. A cedar chest is never a good place for a fur coat. Not only does it not offer the proper temperature or humidity control, it makes your fur smell awful! Storage by a professional furrier-not a dry cleaner-is vitally important to your fur. As soon as the weather turns warm, your fur wants to be in a fur vault, where the temperature is chilly, and humidity controlled. The vault is kept dark, and your coat is protected from moths and other insects that thrive during the summer months. Our clean and modern facilities will insure that your furs receive the finest care during the warm, summer months. Our state-of-the-art vaults are designed to provide maximum protection and preservation of precious furs.  Cleaning, glazing, and restorizing are available for all your furs, liners and shearlings.

 

Fur Cleaning Service

Furs coats in New YorkCLEANING AND MAINTAINING YOUR FURS ON A REGULAR BASIS INSURES MANY YEARS OF ENJOYABLE USE.

Cleaning before storage is a must to keep furs fresh and supple for the next season.

Glazing is a process of bringing out the natural luster and sheen of a fur after it has been cleaned. It involves a steaming and ironing process that will vary with each type of fur. Glazing will restore the life, luster and beauty of your garment. Fur cleaning is performed by hand using a fine powder, which consists of a mixture of ground walnut shells and corncobs. This powder has a very mild cleaning agent added to it and is delicately rubbed into the fur. The powder removes dirt and excess oil from the coat. This process is the safest and most efficient way of cleaning your fur.

The special fur cleaning process also adds to the longevity of your fur, makes it soft and supple, conditions the leather, frees the fur of dust particles that rob your fur of its sheen.  The hairs become fluffy, so the coat looks new again. Sometimes your fur might not look dirty, but it is. Dirt gets trapped into the oils near the leather base of the fur, where it makes the hairs stick together and causes a matted appearance. Fur is hair, after all, and you know how your own hair needs cleaning. Annual cleaning is a necessity. Even just makeup and dust can rob your fur of its luster and sheen. Fur also absorbs smells, such as those coming from your kitchen if your coat closet is nearby. The cleaning and conditioning process revitalizes it. Cleaning and glazing replace some of the oils in the leather, so the fur does not become stiff. We also hand-clean the entire lining!

  • Our unique shearling cleaning process professionally hand-cleaned.
  • While your coat is with us, we’ll make sure all loose buttons, hooks and rings are secure and all minor repairs are taken care of free of charge.
  • If a more serious repair is required you will receive a free estimate.
  • We only clean garments that are stored with us.
  • Remember to have your fur cleaned and conditioned once a year to keep them at their best.
  • Your coats will return in like-new condition.

We also have perfected a cleaning process for all fur-lined fabrics. Our expert cleaners will expertly maintain your lined and trimmed coats. Linings and shells will be expertly restored to their original beauty. Remember, furs and fur-lined coats must be cleaned and glazed each year regardless of use. The back of the pelts is leather that must be moisturized annually in order to prevent cracking and drying. Even when the fur looks good on the outside, it needs care on the inside.

 

Repairs and Alterations

Furs coats in New YorkMAKING IMMEDIATE REPAIRS TO YOUR GARMENT WILL SAVE YOU MONEY IN THE LONG RUN.

Webfurs will inspect your fur and check the seams, particularly at the shoulders, front, closure and pockets; check the lining at the neck and sleeve and the entire back area where the coat receives the most wear.

Rips and tears are the most common repairs and require our furriers to open the lining of the garment and reinforce the form area and sew it back up. The repair won’t be visible from the outside of the garment. In some cases where a spot has been rubbed bare or hair has been torn from the leather, we can patch in a matching piece of fur that is very hard for the eye to detect. We always call you first with an estimate before doing any repairs.

 

Restyling and Remodeling 

Custom furs online at Webfurs.comWE CAN REMODEL YOUR FUR TO KEEP IT IN STYLE.

While your coats are in storage you may want to consider remodeling or restyling work performed. When your favorite fur becomes outdated, a new and modern look may be obtained through our remodeling services.

Many older coats can be made into beautiful sheared jackets, linings for new fur-lined designs or cashmere trimmed garments at a fraction of the cost of purchasing a new coat. We use the finest imported fabrics from Italy. Shearing your old furs make them look new again, while looking great at the same time.

Remaking your old furs is economical way to get further use out of an out dated design. Our expert furriers will show you the latest fashions and give you expert suggestions as to how your old fur can give you many continued years of use. When your favorite fur becomes outdated, email Webfurs for expert remodeling!

  • If your fur is too tight we can loosen the garment in the body, sleeves or shoulder area. With age the human body compacts upon the spine and the shoulder blades and hips get broader, even though you may still weigh the same. We can let out 2 inches across the back, 2 inches across the bust, drop the armholes an inch or more.
  • We can shorten the length and restyle the body to a shape more becoming like a jacket or stroller as well. We can also alter the collar or sleeve in a simple manner so that it brings the garment into a more contemporary style. Email or call us today to discuss the many possibilities!

Fur Care

  • Never store your fur in a plastic bag where air cannot circulate. Furs like to breathe. Use padded hangers and avoid crushing the fur.
  • Never leave your wet fur near a heater. It will cause the leather to crack. Rather, let it dry naturally.
  • Never use sprays or cleaning fluids on your fur. Have them professionally cleaned each year to insure many years of enjoyment.
  • Try not to rub the fur with handbags or packages as it can cause wear spots. It’s best to have your fur cared for each season by the professionals at WEBFURS!!!
