The key to purchasing a Denver fur coat


November 20, 2019

Purchasing a fur coat is a tough decision, and it can often times be overwhelming. Fur is a luxury purchase, and while you should certainly treat yourself there are a few things you need to know before moving forward with your fur coat purchase. There is no need to fear - we are here with the information you need to know before purchasing a Denver fur coat!

Each Denver fur coat is created differently. While two coats might look alike, they are constructed out of different fur pelts. Think about animal fur in general, while a group of animals might look the exact same...they might have spots in slightly different places or birthmarks of some type. No matter what coat you purchase, you will truly be getting a unique pelt. The fur coats are constructed by taking strips/squares of pelts and sewing them together to create a beautiful fur coat just for you.

There are many factors that can impact the cost of your fur coat, but what it really will come down to is type and quality of the fur. If you are on a budget, be sure to speak with the fur seller so they can ensure you stay within your price range. Here are the most common types of fur you’ll likely come across when purchasing a coat: 
  • Chinchilla: This fur is light, soft, silky, and extremely comfortable. Because of its versatility and softness, Chinchilla fur does tend to be some of the most expensive fur you can buy.
  • Beaver: Beaver fur is very versatile and long-lasting. While most of these coats will come in a natural brown, it’s going to be one of the most durable jackets that money can buy. Beaver jackets are perfect for those wanting a jacket they can wear out often. 
  • Coyote: Speaking of durable and long-lasting jackets - coyote fur is growing in popularity because of just that. Not only is it durable and long-lasting, but it has unique silver and brown hues that give this type of fur a very casual look. 
  • Fox: If you are looking for a wide-range of color options, you should give fox fur a glance! Fox is one of the best types of furs for those looking for a few different color options or even for those wanting to purchase a few fur coats, all that have different looks and colors.

Taking care of your Denver fur coat


November 12, 2019

So you’ve purchased a real fur coat...now what? Real fur is not only comfortable and warm, but it adds a great look to any closet. However, true fur coats can require some additional daily care, but we have your need to know guide to help guide you through it.

Daily Storage
The most important part of maintaining your fur coat is to be careful about how you store your fur coat on a daily basis. Always keep your fur coat on a sturdy hanger, and store in a dust-free place. We recommend your closet, but it’s important to keep your fur coat in a cotton bag if you aren’t wearing it daily. The cotton bag allows your fur coat room to breathe and gives it a true opportunity to stay in tip-top shape.

Jewelry 
Pinning broaches or other pins on your fur coat is a common and easy way to accessorize. We fully recommend that you do so, however, it can cause some severe matting on your fur coat if you aren’t careful. Whenever you wear jewelry on your coat, be sure to remove the coat before hanging.

Stay Aware of Chemicals
When putting on your coat, it’s important to stay aware of what else you have left in your daily routine. For example, if you still need to put on makeup or hair spray - do not put on your fur coat. Same with perfume. Hair spray, perfume, and other beauty products often contains chemicals that could damage your fur coat. Make sure you put your fur coat on when you are completely done getting ready.

Daily Wear
If you are wearing your fur every day, make sure that you remove the coat before sitting down for long periods of time. When you sit down, you are going to crush the fur. While doing so briefly won’t cause any serious harm, prolonged sitting can be dangerous for your jacket. If you are caught in rain or snow, when you get inside be sure to shake off your coat and let your coat hang in a well-ventilated area.
