We do not try to persuade anyone to adopt a particular viewpoint, and we fully understand and respect those who are critical of fur and fur breeding.

WHY FUR?

Fur has a long history of use in clothing and accessories, dating back to ancient times when it was used as a practical way to keep warm in cold climates. Fur is the natural clothing from the time before environmental problems occur, partly caused by synthetic clothing production. Despite the rise of synthetic alternatives, many people still appreciate the natural qualities and unique beauty of fur, and it remains an important resource for many communities around the world.

One reason why fur can be considered sustainable is that it is a natural and renewable resource. Fur can be produced from a variety of animal sources, including rabbits, foxes, and mink, which are all able to reproduce and replenish their populations. Additionally, fur can be sourced from animals that are already being raised for other purposes, such as meat production or pest control. This means that the production of fur does not necessarily require the breeding of additional animals, which can reduce the overall environmental impact.

Fur is also a durable and long-lasting material, which means that fewer fur garments need to be produced and disposed of over time. This can reduce the environmental impact of the fur industry compared to synthetic fabrics, which break down and release microfibers into the environment for many hundreds years.

At Stampe, we are committed to producing fur in an ethical and sustainable manner. We work with reputable fur farms that adhere to high standards of animal welfare, and we ensure that all of our fur is sourced humanely. We also use sustainable farming practices, such as using natural pest control methods and minimizing our use of chemicals.

In addition to our commitment to sustainability and animal welfare, we also support the conservation of wild animal populations. We only source fur from species that are not endangered, and we work with organizations that promote responsible hunting and trapping practices.

In conclusion, we believe that fur can be a sustainable and ethical choice when produced responsibly. At Stampe, we are dedicated to producing high-quality fur products in a way that is environmentally and socially responsible.

WHERE ARE WE MOVING TO AS A COMPANY?

As a company, Stampe is committed to listening to our customers and responding to their demands and opinions. We are always looking for ways to improve and evolve, and this includes staying up to date on the latest developments in sustainability and animal welfare. And we know we are not perfect. 

In the future, we will be focusing more on sourcing our materials from animals that are raised in the best possible conditions, and that have the most sustainable production practices. We are particularly interested in lamb fur and skin, as it is a type of fur that is obtained from animals that are raised in large, open areas, and the entire animal is used in the production process.

We believe that this focus on sustainability and animal welfare is important not only for the well-being of the animals, but also for the long-term success and viability of our business. We are committed to finding new and innovative ways to create high-quality products that are also ethical and responsible.

Seal fur is a popular material for use in clothing and accessories because it is exceptionally warm and durable. It is also known for its water-resistant properties, making it an excellent choice for use in wet and cold climates.

One of the benefits of using seal fur is that it is a natural and renewable resource.

We buy our sealskins from Kopenhagen Fur, that sources their skin from Greenland.

Seal fur is obtained through hunting in the wild, rather than being raised on fur farms. This means that the animals have had the opportunity to live a natural life.

While some people may argue that hunting is not a humane way to obtain fur, it is important to note that hunting is an integral part of the culture and economy of many indigenous communities, and it is regulated to ensure that it is done in a sustainable and responsible manner.
