Care by our Rhomberg Fur Company staff for your beautiful fur is essential. It will help extend the wear of your amazing fur or shearing garment.

Mend any small tears immediately, often times delaying a repair can lead to an expensive replacement of pelts.

Your furs, leathers, shearlings and fine outerwear will provide you years of enjoyable wear when they are professionally conditioned, cleaned, and stored annually. Each spring protect your garments by storing them in the Rhomberg Fur Company‘s temperature and humidity-controlled vaults. It is important to keep your garments away from heat, normal home humidity, and moths.

Hang your fur on the Rhomberg Fur Company’s contour hanger provided at the time of your purchase. The weight of the fur will be evenly distributed on that hanger which will prevent straining at the shoulder seams.

Do not hang or store your fur or shearling in any plastic or cloth bag. This will result in a crushing of the fur or shearling. If your fur should happen to get wet, shake it gently to remove excess moisture and hang it in a cool, dry place to completely dry. If it becomes entirely soaked, please bring it to Rhomberg Fur Company as soon as possible.

Never place any chemicals or moth prevention on or near your fur. This can harm your garment Be careful not to carry shoulder bags on your shoulder when wearing your fur as the friction can break guard hairs. Be alert of the type of jewelry you wear on your wrists or neck as these can also cause unnecessary wear to the cuff and collar areas of your fur. Always feel free to call us with any questions regarding the care of your garment.

Our team of master furriers and professional finishers will mend any fur, leather, and cloth damage from the smallest tear to replacement of complete sections, assuring that your valuable garment is handled with the care and respect equal to our own.

The smallest tear can lead to the costly replacement of a complete pelt or section if not attended to properly. A minor tuck or shortening can remove minor wear from cuffs, pockets and hemlines. Be sure to have your fur thoroughly inspected and maintained annually in the spring.

A small seam opening in your lining may lead to a tear, and the need for complete lining replacement. If you have a loose hook or ring closures, attend to them in a timely matter. By securing the closures you eliminate undue stress on the fur, often times leading to the tearing of pelts.

Our experts will be happy to inspect your furs and give you a free estimate if any repairs are required.
