Top Five Fur Repairs Tips You Should Know About

When you own a fur coat for very long, you will inevitably face the need to repair it because of the various issues that crop up like wear and tear, loose hooks, zipper problems, and so on. Some of these repairs are pretty simple for any fur owner to do by themselves while others would require the touch of a professional furrier. And below, we will look at the top five repair tips that you should definitely know about.

  1. Ripped Pelts

In case the pelt of your coat is very thin or too dry, it will possibly rip apart rather easily. And this can obviously be worrisome. However, repairing such issues is an easy task. All you need to do is to stitch it up using close stitches, ensuring that you never stitch anywhere near the edge. Stitching close to the edge has a very high risk of causing more tearing in the pelt. Once you have properly stitched it, apply some glue and cover the repaired region with a leather patch.

  1. Closure Issues

Fur coats may also develop problems with closures. For example, a zipper can become damaged that prevents you from properly covering yourself up. Though you can try attaching a new zipper all by yourself, it is recommended that you give the coat to a professional furrier so as to get the zipper correctly attached. The same goes for other closures like buttons, Velcro, and so on.

  1. Torn Lining

One of the most common fur repair jobs done by a large number of furriers is remedying torn lining. Repairing this can turn out to be very costly. As such, when you present your fur coat to the furrier for repair, they will take a look at the torn region and give you an estimate of how much the repairs would cost. And only when you are okay with the prices and provide your sanction will the furriers start repairing it. Now, just because a furrier quoted a high repair cost, do not go about and hire a regular tailor to fix the issue. That can turn out to be disastrous.

  1. Loose Hooks

Sometimes, the hooks of the coat will likely come out loose. In such situations, you can resolve the problem by getting new hooks from the nearby craft store and stitching it onto the coat. But, do make sure that the furs and never snagged into the stitches. And in case they are, try pulling the hairs out using a needle or something similar.

  1. Bald Spots

When any section of the coat is continually exposed to an object that rubs against it, there is a good chance that a bald spot may be developed. For example, wearing a fur coat and then having a shoulder strap on will inevitably cause the region around the shoulder to become bald. Similarly, areas of fur capes or accessories can also develop bald spots. And this is something that you cannot rectify yourself. Only a professional furrier can remedy this issue by patching in some replacement furs at the bald spot.
