Today, TBdress Reviews would like to share some tips about recycle vintage furs with you. Maybe it’s what you want to know!
Vintage is all the rage in fashion from sparkling costume jewellery to those old fashion stoles grandma used to wear. The influence of fur is being seen in fashion and home dcor. Here are a few things you’ll need about buying vintage fur.
1. Good news
Vintage furs are very affordable. Prices range can start at under $50 for a hat, collar or cape. So, adding some vintage flair won’t break the bank.
2. Cold Care
Any fur, old or new, should be kept in cold storage during the hot humid summer months.
3. Avoid Ciggie Smell
If the fur you love is holding the smell of cigarettes, put it back on the rack. No amount of airing it will remove the smell.
When you try on your vintage fur, move around and swing your arms. If it feels fragile, it probably is and may rip on you in the future.
5. Avoid discoloration
Steer clear of a vintage fur with discoloration around the collar or armpits. No amount of cleaning can fix it.
6. Good Buys
Some furs have a longer life than others. Raccoon and mink are studier than muskrat and rabbit that do not stand up so well over time.
If you love the fur but the style doesn’t work for you consider recycling it into something else. Use fur to line a jean jacket, create cuffs or a collar for a sweater or make it into a scarf. Cut down a full length to a jacket. The possibilities are endless.
