Maintain you’re products
- Fur needs to breathe, so allow it to hang freely on a broad-shouldered or padded coat hanger. Store it in a garment bag. To avoid fading, keep it away from direct sunlight.
- When your fur is wet from rain or snow, simply shake it and hang it in a dry, well-ventilated room. Avoid any direct heat sources as they will damage the fur. Once it is dry, shake it again. It is now ready to wear.
- Have your fur cleaned by a professional dry cleaner and mention that you’re product is made with genuine fur. Insure to get you’re product cleaned every year or every other year, depending on how often you use it , as dirt and pollutants will be removed during the cleaning process and the leather side will be revitalized by having the necessary oils added.
- Always have small rips or tears repaired by a furrier immediately to prevent more expensive repairs later.
Avoid spraying any kind of chemical onto fur garments. This includes perfume and hairspray. Never comb or brush fur garments.
– Fur & Sustainability
The countries we buy our fur from has one of the toughest environmental legislations in the fur trade and often serves an example for other fur producing countries.
Fur apparel is remarkably long wearing, unlike the trend towards disposable fashion. Fur garments can be easily recycled, tailored into a new design in keeping with changes in fashion and consumer needs. Thus, ensuring an even longer lifespan from one generation to the next.

• Recommended dry cleaning, if washed use and delicate soap and avoid strong agitation in the washing machine
• Silk is sensitive to heat so it should be ironed carefully whilst damp
• Sunlight can weaken and cause yellowing to silk fabrics and garments worn next to the skin are recommended to be washed or dry-cleaned after each wearing to maintain the fabrics standard.
- To maintain the standard of you’re cashmere products we recommend you dry clean for the best results.
- Before packing away your cashmere products insure to de-pill and de-crease to make sure the product is nice and ready for when you next use it. Insure to get rid of any dirt such as hair as this can attract moths which will damage the cashmere.
- Pilling happens to well worn cashmere however there are ways to remove this by using a cashmere comb which will also soften the fibres.
- When de-creasing you’re garment , iron inside out on the lowest heat setting using a damp cloth between the cashmere and the iron and keep it moving however the best option would be to use a hand held steamer.
- When storing cashmere there are a few tips you should take into consideration in order to maintain the fabrics quality. Any storage area for your product must be hoovered , dusted and then wiped down before storing the cashmere in order to keep it clean and damp-free. If you store the cashmere in a draw or shelf line it with anti-moth fragrance paper and use cedar balls or scented sachets if you store your product in the wardrobe.
- When storiging the cashmere do not use cardboard boxes as they aren’t pH neautural and could react and damage with the cashmere fabric.
- Also do not leave cashmere garments in plastic bags for more than 3 months due to the changes in temperature when heating is turned on and off as this will cause condensation in the bags which will in turn dry onto the garments and cause yellowing on light colours.
- We also recommend you wrap your cashmere in a pH free tissue paper to preserve its colour and protect against dust and dampness.
- Another key note is to never store you’re cashmere in direct sunlight as this will cause you’re fabrics to rot and this is a general rule for clothing.
