It was not long before the world was on the verge of a fur coat, as a new technology was in the works.
And it would change the face of fashion, with the development of an all-natural fur process, one which has since become the standard for all fur.
The technology involved was the same as that used to produce leather or fur in the early 1900s.
And as we know from history, it can take up to 100 years for the animal to fully recover from its ordeal, which could be as much as 30 years.
And now it’s not only in the wild that fur is being created, but it’s also being produced by small-scale farms in many countries, as the process gets further developed.
To get the right coat for the right person, the best fur can be made by selecting the right animal.
