The AFC Authorized Fur Care Specialists Program
The furcare.org website was designed as a consumer advocacy website and AFC licensing program to help owners of fur garments and accessories understand how to care for their items. There is a lot of information available on the topic in the form of “old wives tales,” advice from friends and recommendations from businesses that do not specialize in furs. Much of this information is incorrect and can actually cause damage to furs and speed up biodegradation.
Our intent is to make clear how to care for your furs, and in some cases, explain the reasoning and science behind fur care methods and actions. Caring for your fur is very easy when you have the correct knowledge. Simple precautions and inexpensive maintenance can assure an extended life of beauty for your fur. You can trust the advice of an Authorized Furcare Specialist.
