Come to Us for Fur Coat Repair Services in Chicago, IL

Hinsdale Furriers is a fourth generation family owned and operated business located in Hinsdale IL, a western suburb of Chicago.

We offer onsite temperature and humidity controlled fur storage, as well as fur and leather cleaning. Our fur repair shop is directly above our salon.

We invite you to bring in your existing fur garment to be thoroughly checked over. Proper fur care and repair will extend the life of your fur.

Our fur experts are happy to give ideas for restyling your fur.


Some things we have done in the past:

Used an older fur to line a cloth coat (we are able to shear the garment if the fur is in good condition), turn a coat into a fur jacket, add leather to a jacket for a more casual look, make a fur throw, make headbands, earmuffs, fur purses all from older garments. Remember, the older the fur the less restyling we are able to do.

If you prefer to get a new coat you are able to use your fur as a trade in towards something in our extensive line of new furs. Or you may decide to put your fur on consignment with us.

We also have a beautiful line of new shearlings and accessories available for purchase.

 

Storage – Hinsdale Furriers offers onsite temperature, humidity and light controlled storage for your furs. Fur storage means more than storage in a cold vault.

It means inspecting, brushing and cleaning them before putting them away.  It means protecting them against moths, burglars and fire. Dryness and heat sap the natural oils, cause hairs to become brittle, to curl and to lose their luster.

Cleaning – Furs need to be cleaned by a professional furrier method; not by a dry cleaners. Cleaning of your furs is essential no matter how little you may have worn them.

Consider the dust that gathers on the floor of your closet.  That same dust permeates the pelts of your furs.  Though not noticeable on the fur, the dust and airborne particles sift down through the hairs and sit on the leather.

Once there, they hasten the drying out of the leather by absorbing the natural oils and moisture. Proper cleaning removes the dust and accompanying film and helps prolong the life and wearability of your garment.

 

We encourage annual cleaning of your furs and strongly recommend cleaning no less than every other year.

 

Repairs – Repair any sign of damage immediately. Small rips and tears can turn into more expensive repairs if left unfixed.  Our expert furriers and finishers are on site to fix such repairs.

Restyling – Many people do not wear their furs any longer because the style is tired and outdated, but if the fur is still in good condition, we can restyle it into something new and current.  Here are some popular ideas for updating your fur:

• Recut the shoulders and narrow the sleeves to update the style of your fur.

• Shorten your coat to a practical stroller or jacket. You can use the portion we cut off to make a detachable hood.

Shear your long haired fur and use it as liner for a cloth coat.

Turn your fur into a stylish vest.  We can even make it reversible to cloth.

Create a throw and pillows for your home.

Make accessories such as headbands, earmuffs, purses, cuffs, collars, etc.
