Fur repair differs slightly from leather repair, even though both are made from animal pelts. While leather is the skin with the coat of fur removed, fur remains resplendent in its natural beauty. The longevity of any fur coat depends on how well it is maintained, perhaps even more so than leather.
While we recommend that leather and fur is professionally cleaned and maintained, leather is easier to maintain at home. As fur represents the ultimate luxury, it also must be maintained to the highest scrutiny. Like matters of our own health, repairing fur is best done at the first sign of damage. Fur is much easier to repair before the damage has gotten out of hand. We often don't think about it, because the seams that hold fur coats together are harder to spot, and therefore damage is harder to identify.
If you have owned your fur coat for many years and have never had it cleaned or repaired, you can send your coat to us and we will inspect it for you. We have repaired thousands of fur coats, and our expert eyes can spot burgeoning rips and seam tears early. We know how valuable your fur is to you, and we take supreme care in our alterations and repairs.
Let's say that your fur has a bare spot, or even worse, a visible hole. We have countless numbers of fur patches, in every style and color. We can locate a spot-on match and perform a seamless repair so, from the outside, not even you will be able to tell where the damage was. As always, we check with you first before we do anything that was not in our original estimate.
