Fur Storage & Maintenance
Store Your Furs
Keep your fur coats with a reputable furrier that has a fur storage facility on the premises. If you must store your furs at home, store them in your darkest, coldest closet, away from heat ducts or hot or cold water pipes. Heat and humidity will dry out the natural oils in your fur.
Keep Them Clean
To keep your furs clean and fluffy, have your coat cleaned and conditioned by a professional furrier. Professional fur cleaning removes dirt, oils, and make-up, and it keeps the hide soft and supple, bringing back the fur’s original luster, and prolonging the fur garment’s life.
Repair Rips & Tears
Before storing your fur coat, examine it if for rips or tears in the lining, for bald spots throughout the coat or cape, and for broken or damaged closures. Only a professional furrier can repair a tear or rip in fur garments. Do not rely on a regular tailor for fur coat repairs.
Restyle in Summer
If you are interested in remodeling or restyling your fur coat to a more modern look, discuss it with your furrier during the winter or spring months. By performing the work in the summer months, you'll be sure to have your new coat at the beginning of the next fur wearing season.

He insists that fur coats designed and created in his fur shop will only be made with top quality pelts, superior workmanship, and beautiful designs.
David Appel believes that furs, more than any other fashion item, need to be of top quality. Inexpensive, cheaply made furs quickly lose their glamour because of inferior design, poor skin quality, and substandard craftsmanship. It is important that you buy a quality fur coat that will fit your lifestyle, so it can be worn for many years to come.
