¿WHAT DO I DO IF MY LEATHER GARMENT GETS WET?
A very frequent request among our customers is what to do in case that our leather or fur garment gets wet. Today we will explain how to proceed correctly in that event.
The first thing that we have to know is that water is not good for our leather and fur garments. For this reason, our first advice is to avoid as far as possible that our garments get wet.
However, is obvious that sometimes is impossible, for instance, we could be got by unexpected rain. The way to react in that case will depen on the amount of water that has fallen on the garment.
If we are talking about a fur garment and it has only got a little wet, we recommend shake the piece to remove superficial water and hang it in a well ventilated place until it dries. It is not recommended to use artificial fans, is more convenient let the garment dries bit by bit in a natural way.
The real problem appears when the garment gets completely wet. In that case and depending on the leather and fur quality, water can severely damage the garment. For that reason, in that event, we recommend to bring it to your trusted furrier in order to review and analyze the state. Only professionals can give expert advice.
Finally, it is important to remark that leather and fur garments are completely diferrent from those made of textile. For that reason, whenever you have a question about a leather or fur garment we recomment to contact an expert.
