FUR, MINK & FURBAZAAR
FUR is the world’s oldest type of clothing. The unique ability of fur to keep a body warm has served to protect man against the elements ever since prehistoric times. For thousands of years, fur has been traded across borders and continents. Ancient trading routes and towns were founded on fur trade, generating development and wealth. Fur is one Denmark’s few global successes. Denmark produces high quality mink skins and holds a leading position, which makes the fur sector unique from a Danish standpoint. No other Danish sector enjoys a similar global position of strength.
MINK skins are some some of the world's most exclusive and sought-after fur materials. In spite of its soft and delicate nature the material is quite durable and this, along with the warmth of the fur, makes it the perfect choice for elegant winter wear. But mink skins can also be used for accessories, interior design etc. Mink comes in an array of types, colours and qualities but common for the skins from Kopenhagen Fur is their exceptional quality, recognised by the even, dense and voluminous fur.
FURBAZAAR is a company that aims to exploit and combine the benefits of globalization and the Internet with the tradition and crafts of fur and mold these pillars together and offer custom-made fur's to customers across the world at good prices, great speed and with a high level of service.

QUALITY AND SUSTAINABILITY WITH GOOD CONSCIENCE
WE DO NOT PRODUCE FURS FOR STOCK OR SALE - WE ONLY MAKE FURS FOR OUR CUSTOMERS, YOU!
Quality has always been one of the most important factors for us. Quality in the broadest sense of the word. Our quality concept covers not only longevity, beautiful designs, good craftsmanship and good materials. It also includes high animal welfare and sustainability in production.
Unlike the fashion industry's 'fast fashion' products, fur has a long life. Eg. The mink fur has an average lifespan of up to 40 years. After that, it can be remade so that an old cut is made into a present or it can be passed on too another generation. If you really want to get rid of your fur, you can dig it down into the garden where the fur will just be biodegradable by nature. Fur is 'slow fashion' and a true circular natural product.
The ideological idea that animals and humans are equal beings and that humans cannot use animals for anything, is basically not a discussion for or against fur but a discussion of a far broader ideology. Without animals, humanity was still a place in the Stone Age because people and animals are mutually dependent.
The fur industry is based on good animal welfare. Good animal welfare equals high quality fur. That's what made Denmark the world's leading producer of mink skins. Something we as a country should be proud of. In these years, the international fur industry rolls out the most ambitious certification and animal welfare program to date. It aims to ensure high and uniform quality and animal welfare throughout the EU and provide the consumer with a blister that can create safety and security about the product.
Although fur is probably the most sustainable material in the world, we would like to add another sustainable dimension, namely at the production stage. Therefore, we do not make fur’s for stock or for sale. We only make fur’s that is made to order. No stock and no standard sizes. We think this is a responsible approach to a sustainable production.
