FUR GARMENT ALTERATIONS & REMODELLING
FUR THROWS FOR YOUR SOFA & BED
If you have a fur garment which you don't wish to wear, but would like to keep, then this could be the answer. We can take a full length coat and make it into a throw of about 1.2m x 1.3m, depending on the garment size. If we also have a stole, it can be added as a border. Now we have a throw that's 1.4m x1.5m. The garments are unpicked by hand and rearranged into a square or rectangular shape, resewn and re-oiled if necessary. We sew a layer of polar fleece to the back, and then a lining of your choice. We can also combine two garments to make into a bedspread. Some people have several smaller fur pieces such as stoles and capes, and even these can be combined to make a large throw. Despite variations in fur type, we can arrange them to be complimentary to one another. Almost any type of fur can be used, but there are some types which take longer to work than others. Because of the amount of variations in fur types and the time it takes to dismantle, unpick and remake various garments, we estimate costs once we have a good look at the garments in store. We have a large stock of vintage fur garments that can be used if you don't have any of your own.
