Craftsmanship and Creativity
When you see a breathtaking piece of modern fur design, you really have no idea of the time and work it takes to produce it. Fur is luxurious and beautiful, but it’s the furrier’s craftsmanship that makes the finished piece unique. The furrier is the genius who transforms meticulously graded pelts into the most elegant garments to realize in fur the vision of the modern fashion designer.
He or she creates ultimate luxury in a modest workshop environment, using simple tools that have barely evolved from century to century. Mixing short hair with long, weaving it to look like a knitted garment, binding the strands to jersey or other fashion fabrics: the number of techniques is as varied as the sands.
The Design Centre in Copenhagen is the world’s principal spot where experiments in fur are nurtured into major material innovations and product designs that create global trends.
