How to care for a reindeer hide
Pokka Reindeer Hides prepares decorative reindeer hides in Rovaniemi at the Arctic Circle, close to the source of the raw material. To make sure your decorative reindeer hides continue to please you, make sure you follow the instructions in the care guide below.
It is possible for a few hairs to become detached after you purchase the hide and take it home. Reindeer fur is hollow which makes it more susceptible to breaking.
The shedding of a few hairs can also partly be due to the numerous production stages where the hide is subjected to mechanical strain. This minor loss of fur stabilises within the next few months.
However, it must be noted that a reindeer hide is a unique natural product, consequently small amounts of fur can also detach in the future during the lifetime of the reindeer hide. We always recommend careful handling of the hide.
Pets often adore reindeer hides, but unfortunately they often tend to pull out the fur from the hide.
You should not place a reindeer hide close to a fireplace or other source of heat. Similarly, underfloor heating on a high setting is not the best possible place for a reindeer hide, as the warmth accelerates the drying of the hide. Reindeer hides are also not recommended for storing in a closed bag or rolled up because the reindeer hide will not be able to breathe. Always avoid excessive handling, rubbing or shaking of the reindeer hide.
If liquid spills on the reindeer hide, it must be wiped off carefully. If the leather side of the hide is wet, turn the hide over to dry the wet side facing upwards. Place the reindeer hide on a horizontal surface if possible.
The reindeer hide can also be carefully cleaned using the dusting brush attachment of your vacuum cleaner. Adjust the power of the vacuum cleaner as low as possible and always vacuum along the fur.
A good way to extend the duration of its natural beauty, the hide can be used to decorate a wall. A reindeer hide is not good for using on the floor as people stepping on the hide will cause damage to the fur side, as each hair is hollow and therefore susceptible to breaking. Taking good care of your reindeer hide ensures it retains its original splendor for many years to come.
We hope you enjoy your reindeer hide and it provides you joy – the hide is a genuine example of nature in the Arctic.Print This Page
