Padovafurs has been trading furs since right after WWII, taking part in the most important international fur auctions to buy its skins. The main countries exporting furs are: Finland, Denmark, Russia, Canada and the United States.
Padovafurs purchases skins only at authorized fur auctions where a set of rigid standards are maintained. Furs breeding farms are strictly controlled by local authorities who monitor animals’ health and living conditions such as nutrition, reproduction procedures, hygienic conditions of the farmhouses and animal accommodation, thus offering full traceability of all skins; and as for wild animals, auction houses and local authorities guarantee that hunters are authorized ones and that no endangered species are harmed.
SagaFurs skins from Finland are traced and part of the international Origin Assured program; Danish skins are certified by Kopenhagen Fur: Canadian and North American ones are Origin Assured and supplied for by NAFA; sables come from the Russian Sojuzpushnina auction and are certified by Sobol.
After the auction, professional tanneries transform raw skins into wearable furs suitable for wearing and manufactured into luxurious garments. The tanning process itself undergoes strict international and European standards: European discipline n°1907/2006 REACh, Californian Safe Drinking Water Law and Toxic Enforcement Act, chinese regulation GB 18401-2010, GB 20400-2006, GB 21550-2008 and GB 28480-2012, korean regulation for Quality Safety Indication – Leather Products / Textile Products.
