FUR IS
BEAUTIFUL
Why choose fur?

Fur is without doubt the oldest fabric known to man and is one of nature’s most enduring products. Fur comes from sustainable sources - nowadays the majority of fur is from specialty farms and around 15% is from abundant wild populations. Fur is tanned in the same way leather is, but uses chemicals gentle enough to ensure the natural hairs are not stripped from the skin. Nothing feels like natural fur.

The designs are created in-house from start to finish. We produce only the best quality garments in relation to the offered price. One of our highly respected and greatest abiltities is to - within a very short timeframe - adopt the special wishes of clients and make them come true.
