FUR CARE CONTINUED

STORAGE

Always store your fur garment in professional, climate controlled storage in the spring or during prolonged periods of unuse. Pologeorgis offers secure, onsite fur, shearling, and leather storage in vaults with optimal temperature, humidity, and light to prevent loss of oils and natural beauty. 

CLEANING

Clean and condition your fur regularly by our fur care experts. We do not recommend a dry cleaner. While your garment may not appear to need cleaning it is important to gently remove all microscopic dust, salt, makeup, perfume, and airborne pollutants to maintain softness and suppleness.

REPAIR

Repair small rips or tears immediately. This will prevent more expensive repairs later.

HANGING

Always hang your fur on a broad-shoulder hanger, allowing ample space around the garment so the fur is not damaged. Do not use wire hangers.

STORAGE DON'TS

Never cover your fur in bags of any type. Plastic bags prevent air circulation, and cloth bags crush the fur where it rests against the garment.

Do not store your fur in a cedar closet. Cedar wood absorbs moisture, which can dry out your fur, and does not protect your garment from dust.

Do not store your fur with moth balls. Moth balls react with moisture in the air to produce a gas which acts as fumigant. This chemical reaction causes irreparable damage to your fur (not to mention a lingering odor).

Avoid spraying perfume, hairspray or other chemicals on your fur. The alcohol content in these products will dry the leather and stiffen the guard hairs.

LIQUIDS

If your fur gets wet shake it out and hang to dry in a well-ventilated room. Avoid direct heat or radiators, which can damage both fur and leather. If your fur is completely soaked, deliver or ship immediately to Pologeorgis for proper treatment.

REMODELING

Let Pologeorgis creatively transform and remodel your older fur into a new look. Our experts craftsmen can custom restyle full length coats, jackets, and stoles into modern and comfortable silhouettes which complement your lifestyle.
