Usually used two types of conservation. Wet-salted (scored and immediately salted). Dry – salted (scored, pickled, dried). The risky type is dry sucker, because there is a possibility that the hair during the soaking procedure may fall down (crawl out). Read more below.
More often in work is given wet-salted skins
To achieve elastic leather fabric requires special equipment, which is present in the company "Alyans-fur".
In order to avoid controversial issues after conservation, we recommend to stamp raw nutria. In this case, you will know for sure that you are taking the goods that were given for dressing.
The time of manufacture of nutria is 10 days.
The second name for nutria is a marsh beaver. It is considered the representative of the largest rodents. The natural habitat of nutria is South America. At the beginning of the twentieth century the coypu was brought to Europe where it successfully passed acclimatization. Despite the presence of warm fur, the limbs of the animal are not protected. Currently, animals are able to survive in conditions of not very cold winters, which makes it possible to engage in breeding nutria in the territories of Ukraine. She became the object of hunting and breeding in animal farms and on farms. The ability of nutria breeding all year round has made it popular among breeders.
Initially nutria had a brown, brown color, but thanks to the painstaking work of many years, breeders developed many species such as golden, black, pearl, lemon, snow (white), silver and exotic brown nutria.
Nutria is kept in specially equipped cells with access to water, or diluted in free-standing conditions. In the presence of water nutria itself combed out, for this reason, the presence of water or artificial reservoirs is necessary to obtain high-quality skins. Nutria is unpretentious to food, which allows to get inexpensive dietary meat and valuable warm skins. For more high-quality thick pad in the feed add a complex of vitamin supplements. After slaughtering from nutria, 4-5 kilograms of meat are obtained, and valuable skin is sent for dressing..
There are farms that specialize in the cultivation of nutria to get large size skins. On such farms one can meet nutria specimens of more than 10 kilograms. The nutria fur resembles a small beaver and is rather specific. But modern technologies of processing of fur allow to realize any imaginations of designers when tailoring products from fur of a nutria. In European mills, nutria that have undergone tweak processing is very valuable, it allows it to imitate muskrats, or sheared mink. High-quality tweaking technology is not cheap, which significantly increases the price of skins. We prefer more haircut. Products made from sheared nutria skins have a more elegant, noble look. Also, with the proper selection of skins and cutting height, you can achieve imitation for more expensive furs.
You can buy ready-made nutria skins, like many other types of fur in the Alyans-fur shop. Of course, there is an alternative way of getting nutria skins ready for sewing, is to buy raw nutria and give it for dressing ,. It will be especially interesting to those from whom the garment industry requires a large number of nutria skins for work. To do this, you need to make a little effort and time. Below I will try to describe the process of procurement of raw materials and share information that may be useful to you.
Immediately it is worth noting the raw materials of nutria are of two types, raw or freshly salted and dry dried on the hoop. It is not an auction, its price may often change depending on the supply and demand of the market, as well as the natural color of the skin, size and quality. Animals are slaughtered for meat year-round, which makes it possible to harvest nutria skins in the summer. In order to get a better result with less risk, in most cases, nutritive raw materials are purchased from suppliers and launched for dressing in a freshly salted form. This should be done as quickly as possible, after slaughter, so that the period of disintegration does not have time to come.
In its raw form, it is estimated more expensive, it is easier to give a more realistic estimate. For example, if one can estimate the size and quality of fur in dry form, then it is practically impossible to check the safety of the bulb (loss of guard hair) in dry form. Again, it is impossible to determine under what conditions and how long the raw material was stored in its raw state, before it was decided to be dried on the hoop. An exception may be large livestock farms, where, after slaughtering, the skins immediately go through the whole process of proper processing and immediately go off to dry; with this approach, the chance for the preservation of hair after tanning is much higher.
Responsible manufacturers, who most often cultivate nutria themselves, travel through the villages of the regions of Ukraine and buy raw skins of nutria. Then they process the raw material with salt, which is a preservative, combed out, sorted by color, bound in 10-20 pieces and hung in cold rooms to make the glass excess moisture. In summer, nutria raw materials cannot be stored for a long time, and in order to dry it, areas and extra efforts are needed. Dry raw materials will be cheaper to buy. For these reasons, experienced procurers quickly find a buyer at a similar inexpensive price while maintaining their turnover.
There are collectors or manufacturers who in the summer form the party only under the order. Since not everyone likes to prepare sleighs in the summer, you can take advantage of this. In the summer of investing your capital in the purchase of raw materials nutria at an inexpensive price and immediately take to the manufacture, you will provide your sewing production with the right amount of nutria skins for the winter season, from which you can sew out products with a low cost price in a quiet rhythm. He described the work of responsible collectors, but did not write a word about the activities of unscrupulous. Not fair? Now fix it.
In nature, there are such “specialists” of a broad profile who begin to buy raw materials for nutria pelts at the beginning of summer, but in order to save it until the fall and sell at a higher price, they include all their alchemical abilities and begin to process skins with mothballs and all sorts of other improvised means. If they fail to sell the raw material in the fall, they dry it on the hoop and sell it in a dry form. It is not possible to determine such skins in raw materials without having enough experience. But in the process of dressing, they will show themselves. Such mausoleum workers are not often, but it is better to turn to trusted suppliers on the recommendation.
Nutria skins are divided into several categories, standard and color that more expensive. The standard skins include light brown and standard, which has a brown ridge and cushions and yellow guard hairs on the abdomen. Such skins, in most cases, are given to dyeing in more spectacular colors, or they are applied in stencil dyeing, for example, of a tiger, zebra, or leopard. From the name it is clear that such skins have a standard price tag. Chocolate and black skins can be priced a little more expensive, they look beautiful in the product without additional dyeing. But experienced designers, for tailoring expensive exclusive products still order painting in tone, after dyeing on the bends of the product can not see the white leather fabric.
Colors include colors such as mother-of-pearl, silver, lemon, and white; also some vendors sell pastel colors for the price of color skins. Nacre-colored skins are highly valued with brown pillows nd ridge, on the sides on the abdomen white guard hair. The high value of pearl can be explained by the variety of their use. Of these, you can sew natural products without additional staining, you can also blue color white tips are with blue shimmer, imitation of silver, paint using a wide range of colors, , apply stencil drawings, whiten making the tips white.
It is worth mentioning that the skins with a dark brown chocolate ridge can be priced more expensive than regular mother-of-pearl. Some lose their conscience and try to qualify such skins as silver. The elite and the most expensive natural color is silver, lemon and white, their price can be twice as high as for standard nutria skins. They require more careful maintenance and care. For their breeding, it is necessary to understand a little in selection, not always crossing certain species leads to the expected result, so the elite color of nutria can be not as often as we would like.
Natural color in lemon and white correspond to their names. Silver has dark gray or black ridge and padding and white or bluish guard hair. To conduct the staining of silver white and lemon is equal to vandalism. Exception, if there was a bad care and skins in the spots after tanning, or not enough quantities for the selection of the product. For example, a lemon can walk heavily in pitch, a stencil is applied to simplify the selection. In any case, it should be remembered that the price of raw nutria depends on the sales market.
Let's answer the question immediately. Is it possible to dress nutria skins at home? We will not prevaricate, but perhaps a small amount for a long time and the quality will leave much to be desired. The reasons for poor quality are trivial. This is an insufficient number of workers and equipment. Non-compliance with the process, the temperature of different masters alone may differ by plus or minus ten degrees. Savings on antiseptics, detergents and fats. There is a risk to get the skins in which swims the guard hair. There are, of course, exceptions to the rules, masters who do it with high quality and with love, but the speed of dressing will still leave the best. You should always remember that at home, fast and high-quality dressing is the word antonyms. You always have to choose either quickly or well.
If you are interested in fast and high-quality dressing your choice factory fur industry "Alyans-fur". Speed and quality of work are not the only advantages.
