Is the future of natural fur fashion sustainable?

YES: natural fur is biodegrades at the same rate as a leaf, so it does not generate waste or harm the environment.

It is a responsible and durable material. It does not release microplastics or harmful chemicals, unlike synthetic materials that are derived from plastic and highly polluting.

• TRANSFORMATIONS: 100% RECYCLABLE •

A material that unites generations

Natural fur is timeless and never goes out of fashion. Thanks to its emotional value, it is passed down from generation to generation. All garments can be transformed into new and unique models, which means that fur complies with the 3R rule: Reduce, Recycle and Reuse.

Is natural fur sustainable fashion and Slow Fashion?

YES: The longevity of natural fur is due to both the durability of the material and its ability to maintain a fresh appearance and not wear out.

This makes natural fur an ideal material to repair, transform and recycle. It is part of biodegradable fashion

Is fur a good example of circular economy?

YES: fur has intrinsic sustainability characteristics (durable, renewable and biodegradable) that make it the best example of a material that meets the definition of circular economy. Natural fur does not generate waste or harm the environment.

Are animals bred only for their fur?

NO: In fur farming, 100% of the animal is used, not only the skin, but the remains are converted into beneficial and useful by-products for other industries to produce second generation biofuels, organic fertilisers, animal feed or even cosmetic products, thus closing and completing the circle of the circular economy.

Differences between natural and synthetic fur

All ‘eco fur’, ‘synthetic fur’ or ‘fake fur’ materials do not biodegrade, but decompose into microplastics which are the biggest pollutants in oceans and rivers. The fashion sector is the second most polluting sector due to synthetics and fast fashion.

 

Natural fur, on the other hand, is 100% biodegradable, generates no waste as its waste becomes natural fertiliser and enriches the soil
