At STAMPE DENAMRK, we advocate animal welfare which means the animals wellbeing is always ensured when we are buying our skins at the biggest auction houses such as Kopenhagen fur and Saga fur. Healthy animals produce superior skins.
To bread the healthiest animals in the most sustainable way, our main fur house, Kopenhagen fur, is doing as followed:
"Kopenhagen Fur has made substantial investments to continually optimise the environmental conditions on fur farms. Animal welfare means making sure they are always well cared for. Animals must receive ample food, water, sunlight, and display appropriate behaviour. From January 2017, the European fur trade began implementing WelFur, a science-based welfare certification system documenting the level of animal welfare on fur farms."

Sustainable argicultural nutrient cycle
Mink and foxes are carnivores, and are actually fed with left-overs from our own food-production. In some cases this may be almost 50 percent of the total biomass that might otherwise have ended in landfills.
The overall reason why rabbits are bred is for human food. Therefore, the fur from the rabbit is actually a left-over that is used in the fur production.
Seals are cought by local fishersmen in greenland, and is also used for food by the locals.
Furthermore, our fur apparel is still crafted by hand by our skilled furriers who have all the knowledge to make a long lasting apparel.
Fur is a remarkably long-lasting product. Our mink coats can be worn for thirty or more years. A lot of our customers is often passing down their fur coats to daughters or grand-daughters.
We even take the skins apart and completely restyle our customers coat. Sometimes we recycle the skins to make fx pillows, blankets or accessories.
The pros of fur is that it will ultimately biograde and return to the soil by time.
