The furs are kept in cold storage to prolong their life and to keep the glossy look of the coat. Hung freely in a temperature and humidity controlled facility, this allows the air to flow freely as fur should never be stored in unbreathable material such as plastic bags. Plus it is always a nice feeling to receive your furs back after a long 6 months, in perfect condition ready to wear for the colder seasons.
Don't store your furs cramped in the back of your wardrobe getting warm, moulting and in danger of moth damage. Clothes moths feast on natural fibres and where furs aren't cleaned as often as everyday clothes, old sweat and stains are like gold to moths and will spend months eating away at your luxury fur coats. Cold storage stops the process of moth development, the temperature freezes this and stops the continuation of damage. Once the damage begins it is hard to repair, so take care of those treasure garments and keep their quality for longer.
