Cold storage is an essential part of maintaining your fur. The more time a fur coat spends in cold storage, the better. Fur is a natural organic material and it will degrade as it gets older. If the skins are not properly cared for, they can become brittle and eventually start to crack. At that point the fur is no longer repairable. Cold Storage and Conditioning help to prevent that from happening. “Cold” is the important word here. Room temperature or warmer will not do anything to slow the aging of the garment. As the temperature drops, the molecules of the pelts slow down. This in turn slows the biodegradation process.
We recommend Cold Storage of all fur garments every year during the summer months. Also visit our cleaning and Conditioning section to learn more about keeping your fur looking its best. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.
