Frequently Asked Fur Questions
Can I store my fur at home because I have air conditioning?
No, home air conditioning is not the right temperature, does not have adequate air circulation, nor does it provide the balanced humidity required.
Why do I have to clean and condition my fur garment?
To remove airborne dust and dirt particles that may have collected on your fur. Accumulation of these particles can pull out the natural oils of the pelts and cause your fur to become weak. As a result, your fur garment will begin to rip and need costly repairs. Unfortunately, there is a point where the skins can become too dry, and it cannot be saved.

- Store your fur in a freezer.
- Store your fur in a plastic garment bag.
- Store your fur in a cedar closet or with moth balls.
- Hang your fur in direct sunlight or by a heat source.

You should always:
