  1. Gentle Use and Regular Maintenance: Fur is a natural fiber and is thus delicate, be gentle with it and it will stand the test of time. 
  • Treat your fur and cashmere coats with the utmost care, avoiding excessive rubbing or brushing, especially for fur, to protect the delicate fibers.
  • Keep your fur coat dust-free by gently shaking it out regularly, restoring its natural lushness. For cashmere, use a soft brush to delicately remove any loose dirt.
  1. Storage: Day to day you can hang your coat with the rest of your clothes, if you are storing it away for the winter we suggest a garment bag. 
  • When not in use, safeguard your coats by storing them in garment bags, shielding them from dust and light, preferably in a cold room. 
  • Enhance protection by including anti-moth accessories in the garment bag, recognizing the vulnerability of animal fibers to clothing moths.
  1. Anti-Moth Accessories: Moths have a particular love for natural fibers such as fur, wool and silk and thrive in dark untouched environments, meaning they love when an item is stored away for several months of the year. 
  • Moth Sachets: Infused with natural ingredients, these sachets deter moths while imparting a pleasant scent.
  • Cedar Sense Cedar Rings: Repelling moths and absorbing excess moisture, these rings help maintain an optimal environment for your coats.
  • Cedar Moth Balls: A classic choice, creating a protective barrier against moths and their larvae.
  1. Traveling with Your L.cuppini Items: Be extra gentle when packing in a suitcase and hang your items when you arrive, this way they will fluff up on its own.
  • During travel, store your coat in a garment bag to shield it from dust and potential damage.
  • To prevent friction or rubbing, a simple trick is to turn your coat inside out within the garment bag, protecting the outer surface from abrasive contact.
  1. Dealing with Wet Coats from Rain or Snow: You have nothing to worry about, fur coats were made for rain, snow and tough weather. 
  • If your L.cuppini coat encounters rain or snow, allow it to air dry naturally. Avoid direct heat sources, like radiators or hairdryers, as these can damage delicate fibers.
  • Gently shake off excess water, pat the coat with a clean, dry towel to absorb moisture, and hang it in a well-ventilated area for thorough drying.
  1. Shedding in Fur Coats: This is normal, some furs will shed more than others. If you do not want any shedding at all we recommend mink fur. 
  • Shedding is normal, particularly with furs such as fox and rabbit. New coats may shed more initially. Address this by lightly using a blow dryer on a cold setting for a few seconds, or use a gentle brush to remove excess hairs.
With dedicated care, your L.cuppini fur and cashmere coats become more than just garments; they transform into wardrobe statements of elegance. Following these guidelines ensures your investment stands the test of time, preserving the beauty of these heirloom pieces for generations to come.
