Your fur coat is a statement piece. Fur protects you from the frigid Eastern winters while bringing glamour to your style. Your fur most likely represents a significant importance. Maybe it was inherited from a family member, a gift from a spouse, or a special purchase. No matter the occasion, your fur holds value as one of the most luxurious materials in the world.
To protect your important fur coat or jacket, William H. Harris provides professional fur storage. Whether you purchased your fur from our shop or elsewhere, we are happy to provide the highest level of fur care.
Experts recommend having your fur coat stored every year beginning in late spring through early fall. Storing fur during the warmer months protects your fur from a range of risks including heat, light, moisture, and pests.
The Importance of Cold Storage
Cold storage is the main facet of proper fur maintenance. Keeping your fur coat in cold storage prolongs its life. Since fur is a natural and organic fabric, it will age as time goes on. If the pelts are not protected, they will become brittle and cracked. Repairing this severe damage can be costly and time consuming, leaving you with an expensive repair bill and less time to wear your fur.
Furs are sensitive to temperature and humidity. The best temperature to keep fur is 34-45° F with humidity around 50%. Most homes do not have consistent temperature and humidity. Even the slightest variable in conditions can wreak havoc to the delicate balance of your fur.
Some people believe keeping your fur in an attic or basement is safe, but this is not true. These areas of your home are especially susceptible to temperature and moisture fluctuations.
Our cold storage vault is professionally designed to provide continuous climate control to make sure your coat last for years in its best condition.
