About Us

If you have ever worked with women and fur, you have realized that Fur Garments will never be a thing of the past.

Many years ago, New York City was both a major garment center as well as a Fur center until recent times, when manufacturing shifted to the Far East where labor is much less expensive.

Producing a Fur garment is extremely skilled and labor intensive work. North America, as well as Russia, due to their intense winters, have mink farms and ranches that produce some of the finest pelts in the world. In the late 80's, fur ownership reached a peak in this country. In the 90's, global economic conditions wreaked havoc on the Fur Industry, as well as anti-fur activism and warm winters.

As the average age of the fur consumer declines, in this decade, Fur designers have found many innovative ways to freshen the "tired or staid" look of traditional mink, the staple of the industry.

Today, sheared fur, be it mink, beaver, nutria, rexx (French Lapin, rabbit), Muscat, with their velvety smooth surface and light weight feel, are the rage.

Long haired furs such as sable, fox, racoon, beaver and chinchilla are still used but often as trim rather than as a full coat.

Shearling, considered "politically correct" by some who would not wear mink, is a huge part of the industry today.

Many methods of treating fur; dying, shearing, grooving, lazer cutting, feathering etc are used to create shockingly beautiful and artistic pieces. NOT YOUR GRANDMOTHER'S COAT....

Reversibles with sheared fur on the inside and micro fiber water repellant fabric on the outside have become a staple of most women who wear fur.

Using less expensive pelts to create fur garments and producing them overseas has enabled the industry to bring prices down to a level that many woman can afford and indeed do purchase. Creating high fashion and exciting fur pieces fuels an appetite among woman (and men) to own such a thing of warmth and beauty.
