Fashion meets function in perfect harmony, as pelts are crafted into warm, sophisticated items of clothing that retain their natural attributes. Expert furriers carry out every step in the production process in the workshop, from the consumer’s initial ideas to the finished fashion item.
SwissFur members create model designs and sketch cutting patterns, using their unparalleled experience in sorting and selecting pelts to create a seamless final product. They employ tried-and-tested, traditional techniques to ensure precise cutting and sewing that remains true to the pelt. Carefully crafted lining completes the finished article.
The Swiss fur association promotes the use of pelts from domestic red foxes, employing an artistic, creative approach to turn pelts into sustainable, individual, elegant products, and contributing to the preservation of craftsmanship and fashion in Switzerland.
Reuse, not refuse. To
keep the Swiss fox population at a healthy level and maintain balance in the
ecosystem, around 30,000 foxes are culled in the country every year. The pelts
used to go to waste and were simply incinerated, but now, SwissFur furriers are
making use of them as a natural, domestic resource.
