Use broad-shouldered hangers when hanging your fur garments in the closet, and allow space to prevent it from being crushed or creased.
Never store the fur in a plastic bag. Plastic prevents air from circulating and can dry out the leather. If you want to cover the fur between wearing, use a cloth protector. However, this is not suitable for summer storage.
Never leave your fur near heat as it will cause the both the fur and the leather to become brittle
Avoid any chemicals, strong perfumes, hairspray and make-up near your fur.
