Like any other piece of clothing made from animal pelts, women’s shearling coats can be extremely delicate, requiring specific maintenance measures to ensure their durability and length of use.
When the cold seasons have passed and the coat is not in use, it should ideally be sent to a professional furrier. The owner can request that the coat be cleaned and conditioned to bring back its former luster and softness. If enlisting a furrier’s services is not an option, the next best thing would be to store the shearling coat in a cool dry place, in a breathable garment bag, when it is not in use. Applying suede protection spray at least once or twice a year can also help maintain the integrity of women’s shearling coats.
D’Andre offers stylish shearling jackets and coats of the highest quality. Handcrafted by expertly trained artisans using materials sourced from Italy, Spain and Portugal, the New York-based products are as stylish as they are comfortable to wear.

This year, shearling coats have been all the rage for their versatility, durability and comfortableness. D’Andre leads the industry by providing superior quality shearling fashions for both men and women. Sourced mainly from Spain, Portugal and Italy, the sheepskin pelts are dyed with natural plant extracts resulting in richer colors and reducing the potential for static. All products are hand-crafted by European-trained artisans to ensure their high quality.
D’Andre is also known for its advocacy efforts. The shearling fashion company has adopted environmentally sound methods for manufacturing its shearling coats and other products to support the movement for environmental awareness. Now, the company has also taken a non-profit organization under its wing. In 2011, for every online purchase of a shearling jacket or coat, completed through Google Checkout, $20 will be donated to All Hands Volunteers, a volunteer organization that aims to rebuild and reestablish communities that have been affected by major natural calamities.
