At Oh! By Kopenhagen Fur we love fur and all its amazing possibilities.
Naturally we want you to love it as much as us – and here are two of the very best reasons why you should love our fur as well.
BECAUSE IT IS SUSTAINABLE
Natural fur is an incredibly durable, but also recyclable material with up to 30 years of life. It can be used to ’upcycle’ (transform) materials and redesign e.g. worn coats or details from other clothing. In comparison, faux fur is made of synthetic materials which nature cannot break down, even if it is produced by, for example, recycled plastic bottles. Therefore, styles and trimmings made of plastic will take infinite time for nature to break down.
BECAUSE IT COMES FROM FARMS WITH THE HIGHEST ANIMAL WELFARE
’How can I know that the fur used for Oh! products comes from animals that have had a good life?’, you might ask. You can because we only buy our fur from regulated fur auction houses.
In Denmark we have always had a high degree of animal welfare and now all qualified, Danish farmers will receive a certificate to prove just this as they between 2017 and 2020 will be WelFur certified. In total 4,000 mink and fox farms are in the process of being certified and from 2020 Kopenhagen Fur will only sell WelFur certified mink and fox skins.
And if anyone is still in doubt, let us look at fur farming from a different angle: Kopenhagen Fur is not only the world’s largest fur auction house, it is also the leading. The skins are famous worldwide for their high quality and therefore always fetch the highest prices. The fact is that the better the animals are treated, the more beautiful the fur, and the more beautiful the fur is, the more money the farmers get for the fur skins.
