Storage

It is imperative to store your furs in a professionally, climate controlled storage vault to protect skins from drying out and protect against heat damage, sunlight and insects. Air exchange is carefully regulated and temperatures are kept below 50 degrees fahrenheit with a constant humidity level of 50%, which home storage or air conditioning is unable to duplicate. As soon as it gets warm you should try to store your fur. That could be as early as the beginning of April. If a fur is not stored in a professional vault the hair itself may appear fine, but the oils of the leather will begin to dry out and the fur will not be protected against oxidation which can discolor fur and change its texture. Cedar closets, in particular are especially harmful to your fur because the air is kept dry, which will ultimately dry out the leather.
