Fur clothing, like a real fur coat, dates back to the first civilization of man. Animal fur served as a great protection to the challenging living conditions of early man. At first, it was a necessity, but then, it became a luxury. What can i do with my old fur coat (or a coat i inherited)?

According to a report made by Fur Commission USA, in 2019, the number of pelts produced was 2.70 million! And the total value of these pelts was $59.2 million. These numbers show how much the public loves wearing fur. Consequently, it isn’t unusual to think that you might inherit a fur coat from your mother or your grandmother. But the problem is that the coat is pretty outdated and not something you’d wear outside. What should you do? Inheriting a fur coat can be a treasure trove of potential—if you know how to unlock it.

Restyle Your Heritage

If you are someone who fancies a fur coat yourself, you can restyle the old fur coat so that it fits the fashion standards of today. Expert furriers have the skill to turn your old fur coat into a new one. They will take the coat apart and restyle it however you want. However, there may be some limitations to how they can restyle it depending on the size and condition of the fur.

Diversify with Accessories

Not everyone desires a full fur coat. For a more subtle touch of luxury, consider converting your fur into chic accessories. From elegant fur headbands, sophisticated handbags, to cozy gloves and hats, the possibilities are endless.

Unlocking New Values: Sell

If you feel your fur coat doesn’t have a place in your wardrobe, selling it can be a rewarding option. Marc Kaufman Furs welcomes the opportunity to assess and possibly purchase high-quality, pre-loved used furs. Alternatively, consider donating your fur to animal rescue centers, where it can provide comfort and warmth to animals in need.

Donate it

If you are feeling generous, then you can choose to donate the coat to animal rescue centers or animal rehabilitation centers. These centers make bedding and blankets out of your coats so that the animals can have a better environment and can sleep warm at night. Therefore, you can contact your nearest shelter and ask them if they need any donations at the moment.

Practical Elegance: Wear It for Warmth or Redesign

Your vintage fur coat is a bastion of warmth on chilly winter days. Embrace its original purpose without compromise to style or consider altering it into a contemporary design that suits your daily life.

Fur coat to a fur vest

You can have your fur coat designed into a vest to wear in more than one season. Pair it with a turtleneck, some jeans, and a pair of boots in winter to get the perfect winter look. On other days, when it’s not too cold, you can wear some jeans and sneakers with them and be good to go.

Combine fur and leather

If you like to wear leather more than fur, you can take your old leather coat and add some fur to add a little spice to it. You can add fur to the collars and cuffs of the coat. Moreover, adding it to the sleeves will give it a new dimension.

Fur earmuffs

Some winter days can be especially colder than others, and they call for more layers of covering. Moreover, ears can be pretty sensitive to the cold, and most people prefer to cover them when you step out of the house for errands during those days. Fur earmuffs are perfect for keeping your ears warm and not irritating them as well. You can have a few earmuffs made out of your old fur coat.

Fur jacket

Fur coats can be too much for some people, especially if they live in places where it doesn’t snow much. Thus, you may look odd walking around in a fur coat, and that’s why we have fur jackets for such places. A fur coat turned fur jacket is a great way of utilizing your fur coat. And the best part is, people don’t stare at you weirdly, questioning your fashion sense.

What’s better than a fur jacket or fur collar? Fur shrugs! You can wear the simplest outfit and top it off with a fancy shrug. And that’s all it’ll take to look your best!
