RESPONSIBLE FUR

THE FUR SECTOR IS ONE OF THE MOST STRICTLY REGULATED ENVIROMENTALLY-FRIENDLY INDUSTRIES IN THE WORLD WITH STRONG REGULATIONS AND GOVERNANCE THAT KEEP OUR INDUSTRY AT THE FOREFRONT OF SUSTAINABLE AND ETHICALLY- CONSCIOUS FASHION.

REAL FUR VS. FAUX FUR

DEMARSON VALUES THE FREEDOM WE ALL SHARE IN DETERMINING OUR OWN CHOICES.

REAL FUR IS ALSO A GREAT CHOICE IF YOU’RE BEING CONSCIOUS OF THE ENVIRONMENT. HUNTING AND TRAPPING WILD FUR-BEARING ANIMALS HAVE LITTLE IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT AND IN FACT STRICT QUOTAS ARE SET BY GOVERNMENT OR STATE CONSERVATIONISTS TO SUSTAIN POPULATIONS AT LEVELS FOR THE OPTIMUM HEALTH OF THE ECO SYSTEM. AT THE SAME TIME, THE IFF IS A VOTING MEMBER OF THE INTERNATIONAL UNION FOR THE CONSERVATION OF NATURE (IUCN), WHICH LOOKS AFTER THE BEST INTERESTS OF NATURE AND SUPPORTS THE FUR INDUSTRY’S “SUSTAINABLE USE OF ABUNDANT SPECIES”.

 

IN ADDITION, THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT OF NATURAL FUR COMPARED TO ARTIFICIAL FUR IS MUCH SMALLER, AS SHOWN BY THE STUDY BY DSS MANAGEMENT CONSULTANTS INC. THE FUR INDUSTRY ALSO CREATES A LOT OF EMPLOYMENT AROUND THE WORLD, KEEPING OVER 1 MILLION PEOPLE IN SKILLED JOBS.

WHETHER YOU CHOOSE TO EAT MEAT, EGGS, DAIRY PRODUCE, USE MEDICINES TESTED ON ANIMALS OR WEAR LEATHER, FUR, SILK OR WOOL YOU WILL WANT TO BE ASSURED THAT ANIMALS HAVE BEEN TREATED HUMANELY. THE FUR TRADE INVESTS $MILLIONS IN ANIMAL WELFARE RESEARCH, CERTIFICATION PROGRAMMES AND ANIMAL HUSBANDRY TECHNOLOGY IN ADDITION TO SUPPORTING LOCAL, REGIONAL, NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL ANIMAL WELFARE LEGISLATION.

DURABILITY

IT IS A DURABLE, NATURAL AND SUSTAINABLE MATERIAL. FUR IS WITHOUT DOUBT THE OLDEST FABRIC KNOWN TO MAN AND IS ONE OF NATURE’S MOST ENDURING PRODUCTS. SO WHY CHOOSE FUR? IT COMES FROM SUSTAINABLE SOURCES – NOWADAYS THE MAJORITY OF FUR IS FROM SPECIALTY FARMS AND AROUND 15% IS FROM ABUNDANT WILD POPULATIONS. IN 2017

TRACEBILITY

The Saga Furs Traceability System (STS) scheme is an integral tool in the trade to implement transparency and traceability. This chain of custody documentation has had a huge impact on the way we source our furs. All the furs we sell include the STS documentation whether it comes from a certified farm or not. The Saga traceability programme discloses the proportion of certified farms, dates of farm certification and the countries of origin.

Traceability is another sustainability and ethical issue where Saga Furs leads the industry. Over the past years, we’ve been developing RFID tracing technology that would allow consumers at the point of purchase to scan and trace fur back through the entire supply chain. Full traceability is important for quality assurance and a logical next step in customer transparency from farm to fashion house.
