Ethics & Sustainability for our Fur and Feather Jackets


Our hand selected, hand made fur and feather garments have been sourced from a range of suppliers which are members of the International Fur Federation and have provided us and assured us that the fur we have been supplied has been upcycled or is surplus fur or a secondary product of the food trade. Fur is a natural and sustainable material. It is beautiful, warm, durable, and can be handed down through generations before its ultimately returned to the ecological cycle of nature. When people buy fur garments, they are a sustainable alternative to fast fashion that is quickly discarded.




Fur and Feather Care Guidelines


If your Fur gets wet
Most furs handle snow and light rain easily. Shake it and hang it to dry in a well ventilated room. Please don't try and speed up the drying process by using a hair dryer or hanging it near a heater. After it dries, shake it again. Do not comb or brush it. If its hairs are a little bristly, simply smooth them with your hand. If your fur has been soaked through, however, take it immediately to be cleaned by a professional.
Storing you Fur
Be sure you put your fur in a cupboard or wardrobe that is not exposed to light, which will fade your fur, or heat, which will dry out your fur. Be sure your fur has room to breathe and isn’t being crushed by other garments. You can store your fur in a breathable cotton bag (but preferably no plastic). Avoid all Chemicals Perfume and hairspray contain alcohol, which can dry the pelts. Once a perfume gets into your fur it's difficult to remove. These sprays (including alcohol, solvent, and silicone based substances) will stiffen the fur. Feather Jackets The feather jackets need to be treated extra carefully due to their delicate nature. Spot clean if necessary, and take to a professional cleaner if needed. Fur is a natural and sustainable material.
