Our Care Guide
We recommend storing your Mink coat
a professional furrier in the Spring
of each year. While
it's there, have the furrier condition, clean and glaze it, regardless of
how often it was worn. Keeping your mink coat at home over the
Summer will reduce it's life.
Both normal and cedar closets are not suitable for storage unless they
are equipped with proper air circulation, constant 50oF and 50% humidity
to maintain valuable moisture. Also, the smell from the use of cedar
and mothballs will adhere to fur, leathers and wool, creating lasting
unpleasant odors. The smell of both
moth and cedar balls often adhere to Mink and other fur and creates

While you have your Mink coat at
home, allow your garment proper space in your closet. Never keep
your valuable Mink coat in a plastic bag. Your fur requires proper air
circulation; Use a cloth bag when traveling or transporting your precious
Mink to and from storage.
Do not sit too long on your Mink garment, as this may
lead to crushing. Refrain from excessive use of shoulder straps while
wearing your Mink, as this too will lead to pre-mature wear. If your Mink
coat gets wet, shake it off and let dry naturally. Using heat can cause
both fur and leather to dry out. If your Mink garment gets soaked, it will
need special attention, by a fur specialist.
Be sure to have proper annual care including cleaning.
This process replenishes essential oils necessary for the longevity of
your Mink coat. Mend any small tears immediately. Often times delaying a
repair can lead to an expensive replacement of complete Mink pelts.
Your Mink garments and other furs, leathers, Minks and
fine outerwear will provide you years of enjoyable wear when they are
professionally conditioned and stored. Each spring store your garments in
a temperature and humidity-controlled vault. Keep your garments away from
heat, home humidity and moths.
A mild rain will not ruin your fur. Just hang the garment up to dry in a
well-ventilated room away from direct heat. After it is dry, give the fur
a vigorous shake. If your fur gets thoroughly soaked, bring it to a
professional furrier for proper treatment.
