The most fun I've had with Mongolian Lamb Fur is making custom colors. I didn't realize how many shades of each color there is until I started dying it myself. I use acid dye where the acid is distilled vinegar so its completely harmless.
Imagine you can get fur in whatever color and shade you like! All that's needed is a swatch of something you'd like to match, or, a picture of something you want. These colors can be used on pillows, benches, ottomans, poufs, and chairs. So when you're visiting my store, the colors you see are not the end. There is a limitless variety!! So go ahead and have fun with color:)
All items at AVA Home & Design are individually made with care and the finest of fur. I got started making these as a result of finding faux fur pillows in a department store. They were cute but not the look and feel of elegance. I then decided to find out where I can purchase and make some for myself. After the company I was working for went out of business, making pillows just happened. Actually, it was all orchestrated by God. Everything just fell into place.
After attempts with different countries and vendors, I was made aware that there are different grades of fur. I learned to hard way that some shed really bad, probably due to storage and poor handling. Also, some have a very thin skin, that doesn't feel luxurious when touching or laying on it.
I also found that the fur actually gets softer with age!! Who knew!!
I'll be back with more of my journey later:)
