Material

Our furs are perfect imitations and do not come from any real or living animals. The imitation furs are mostly made from high quality acrylic or modacrylic fibres, or mixtures and have good light and colour fastness. Modacrylic is also flame resistant. The imitation furs are knitted. Excessive pulling can lead to hair loss. The fibre new developments SK2 and were launched by us as a premiere. This is a high tech fibre from Kaneka, Osaka/Japan under the brand name Kanecaron®. Its softness, firmness, colour and light fastness, and wash resistance are excellent. In addition, the fibre is flame resistant. (BS5852/0+1). You can find further information at: www.kanecaron.com.

The articles serval, silver raccoon, marmot, koala, white lion, yukonwolf, tundrawolf, timberwolf and Lynx are made with Kanecaron SK2 and/or modacrylic fibres or mixtures. The articles lamb and guanaco are made of 100% polyester. Seal, fox are made with acrylic fibres.

Manufacture

The imitation fur is manufactured on behalf of Winter Creation in the People’s Republic of China by companies which are known to us and are subject to regular quality controls. The fur blankets and cushion covers are then sewn in a state-of-the-art sewing workshop in Kunshan, China as well as in Europe. The textile covers (Kyra, Shyleen, Grace and Prints) are developed, designed and produced by Winter Creation in Europe. The working conditions are correct and exceed the legal standards. Winter Creation employees regularly inspect the manufacturing. In Europe, we custom-manufacture according to customer requirements, with well-trained qualified personnel.

The bear rugs “Grizzly” and “Nanook” are true-to-life replicas, which have been produced from our artificial fur materials, by trained taxidermists, and therefore also look so real and authentic. We guarantee that no components of real animals are used. The bear rugs are manufactured in Europe.
