UPCYCLING OLD MINK COATS
RECYCLING YOUR FURCOAT
If you have a fur coat that you no longer use for whatever reason, we can recycle your fur coat to a bespoke, warm modern parka for you. Our parka models are timeless outerwear, that are both stylish and functional. Your old fur coat will be made into a warm lining in your new parka.
SELECTION OF PARKA MODELS FOR RECYCLING YOUR FUR COAT
We have several parka, coat and vest models in our collection that can be used for upcycling pre-used fur coats. The fabrics available are water repellent and windproof.
The long parka (98 or 108 cm) represents our take on the traditional fishtail army parka, made in light technical fabric which give the parkas an urban look. The shorter parka (88 cm) has a straight hem. The hood usually has fur lining, but, the customer can also choose a hood trim made from striking Finnraccoon
The models reflects Nordic design aesthetics, such as clean lines and functionality. Fabric colors available are: black, navy, green, beige and off-white.
We also have several other coat models available for upcycling your pre-used fur coat, including some parkas and vests for men. Below are some examples of other models than traditional parkas, which have a fur lining from pre-used fur coats.
Fur material in general is long lasting and we have made fur parkas from mink coats that have been 30 years old and used by more than one generation. Our customers have been able to use mink coats inherited from their mother or grandmother.
Fur lining is only used in the body, while the sleeves have padding from down like non-woven material.
