WHAT YOU CAN DO WITH THE OLD FUR GARMENTS STORED IN THE CLOSET?
November 14, 2017
Many of us have inherited an old fur garment from our mothers, grandmothers, aunts, etc. Garments that, although have a great sentimental value, are totally out of date and they just take up space in our closet.
The second-hand market for these types of items is saturated and most likely the amount of money which people offers for old fur garments is ridiculous. Taking this into account, the alternatives are reduced to: sell them cheap, throw them away or transform them. In our opinion, if the leather is in good condition, the transformation is the best option.
A fur transformation is an unknown alternative for many people that consists of completely undoing the garment to make a totally new model. The client gets accustom-made garment for a much lower price than a new garment. The advances in the leather industry allow furriers to make spectacular garments through a fur transformation. With this service, the leather goes through a cleaning process to improve its condition as much as possible, and it can also be dyed, shaved, combined with other materials, etc.
In this photograh we show you the result of a transformation of an argentinian fox fur coat. Combining fox fur with suede strips, it is possible to go from a voluminous and out of date ferment to two modern and light jackets. And dyeing the leather of one of the garments, you get a casual look. See more examples of fur transformations in our Facebook.
One of the most interesting aspects of a leather goods transformation is to be able to follow the entire creation process and participate in the decision of the details of the new garment. All this process becomes a unique shopping experience.
Finally, we believe that it is important to carry out this process with professionals form the sector with extensive experience. The confection of leather garments has nothing to do with the textile manufacture and a bad arrangement can destroy a garment completely, becoming an important loss of money.
We hope that this article has solved some doubts about what to do with the old furs, but if you have any further questions, you can always ask us.
