How To Care For Your Shrimps Coats
Shrimps coats are made from the finest faux-fur. To keep your style feeling fresh and looking at its best, it needs to be cared for appropriately. It’s recommended that you dry clean your coat once per season. Make sure the cleaner you take your style to has experience with faux fur. You shouldn’t try to wash your coat at home as this will compromise the delicate fabric.
It’s easy to take care of your Shrimps coat between dry cleaning sessions. You can spot clean throughout the season. Using a clean spray bottle to dampen the fur with fresh water, then comb through the fabric using a brush with natural bristles. To dry, use a blow dryer and gentle heat setting. Never tumble dry your faux-fur coat. For stickier marks, you can use a sponge to dab at the dirtied spot and then repeat the above process.
Faux fur doesn’t attract moths so storing your coat between seasons is easy. Keep it in your cupboard or in a dry space. Don’t leave your garment in direct sunlight or near heat sources.

- Who Is Behind Shrimps’ Designs?
British designer Hannah Weiland created Shrimps in 2003 after finding a sample of faux fur that she couldn’t believe wasn’t the real deal. Having studied History of Art and Surface Textile Design, she made it her mission to make vegan fur coats inspired by modern art. Each piece has a unique pattern or colour palette and the designer takes influence from galleries across the world, making regular trips to exhibitions in London and Paris.
