We are now fully aware that natural resources are exhaustible, and that’s why we attach great importance to recycling. Fur has a long life and has a huge potential for remodeling.
The advantage of remodeling is to offer a second life to one’s coat, and at a lower cost than buying a new fur.

There is no need to remodel a coat from A to Z; some alterations may be sufficient to rejuvenate the garment.
Here are some examples of alterations; shorten it, add a detachable hood, make it more adjusted, modify the collar, sleeves, shoulders, or even insert another type of fur…
Besides remodeling, accessory confection is also an option to recycle your fur; hats, handbags, gloves, collar, ear muffs, sleeveless vest, cushions, carpets.
Is it necessary to store your fur? Yes. A fur can last up to fifty years (depending on the kind of fur) if stored. In storage vaults, the air quality, temperature and humidity are set to ideal conditions for the preservation of fur. If it is not stored, the skin will dry out over time and will consequently be impossible to recycle.Vaults on the spot, proven against fire and theft
Storage includes insurance on your fur. The picking and delivery of your coats are free for the storage service.
It is recommended to clean one’s fur once a year (depending on the frequency of use) and this, in order to restore its luster and flexibility, and to get rid of calcium stains and dirt accumulated during winter. The cleaning combined with annual storage allows the fur to last longer. Cleaning must be done by a specialist.
