Ethical fur

How we handle fur …

 

We at pavuna are concerned about the origin of fur. The ethics behind farm-bred fur has made us only use Finn Raccoon furs of Finland origin having the Origin Assured (OA™) hangtag.

This OA™ certification ensures that pelts are coming from countries where regulations and standards for guaranteed animal welfare. Furthermore, Finnish farms follow strict EU guidelines and need to cover certification along the criteria: animal health and welfare, housing conditions, feeding, breeding, environmental protection and farm hygiene. All lives of animals bred on a certified farm and the fur production chain are documented and traceable through this approach.

 

As important as the standard itself, is the safe tracking of furs from farm to garment. We buy the furs from a supplier in Frankfurt, who traces the skin from the original auction house.

 

Fur from animals raised in this kind of environment is typically fuller, stronger and longer lasting than fur from animals raised to a lower standard.
