Furcare.org was designed as a consumer advocacy website and licensing program to help owners of fur garments and accessories understand how to care for their items. There is a lot of information available on the topic in the form of “old wives tales,” advice from friends and recommendations from businesses that do not specialize in furs. Much of this information is incorrect and can actually cause damage to furs and speed up biodegradation.
The intent of this website is to make clear how to care for your furs, and in some cases, explain the reasoning and science behind fur care methods and actions. Caring for your fur is very easy when you have the correct knowledge. Simple precautions and inexpensive maintenance can assure an extended life of beauty for your fur. Please refer to the list below for most everything you need to know. And remember… only trust the advice of an Authorized Furcare SpecialistSM.
