At Stampe Denmark, we advocate animal welfare which means the animals wellbeing is always ensured when we are buying all of our Mink and fox skins at the auction houses Kopenhagen fur and Saga fur. Healthy animals produce superior skins.
To bread the healthiest animals in the most sustainable way, our main fur house, Kopenhagenfur.com and Sagafurs.com, is doing as followed:
"The auction houses 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 fox jackets
Mink and Fox are carnivores, and our animals are actually fed with left-overs from humans own food-production. In some cases this may be almost 50 percent of the total biomass that might otherwise have ended in landfills.
Rabbit, shearling and lamb leather jackets
The overall reason why rabbits and lambs are bred is for human food. Therefore, the fur and leather from the rabbit and lamb is actually a left-over that is used in our production. Almost 100% of the animal is therefore used, with the purpose of minimum waste.
The animal welfare standards is in general getting higher when the farmer know that they can benefit from the better quality of the fur or leather they sell along with the meat.
All seal skins bought by STAMPE is caught by Greenlandic Inuit hunters alongside the Greenlandic coast. Furthermore is all skins tanned at Great Greenland's tanning facilities in South Greenland. It is only allowed to sell Inuit hunted sealskins in the EU, and is therefore a guarantee for our customers.
All 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 without any harm to nature.
