RoyalFox - More than sustainable winter fashion
Winter fashion is available like snow in the mountains. But which raw materials are used to warm and style us in the winter? RoyalFox stands for fair winter fashion through the entire supply chain: from fur, to the jacket lining all the way to production.
Fur is not like fur
s from fur farms.
Every year 460 tons of fur are imported to Switzerland. This corresponds to about 15 trucks. The fur comes largely from fur farms, where the animals are bred and exploited under scandalous conditions.
But we have more than enough fur from domestic sources!
Our hunters have to kill more than 20,000 foxes each year to regulate their stock and protect our natural environment. Only about 15% of their fur will continue to be used in favor of the textile industry. RoyalFox manufactures high-quality winter parkas and caps using our Swiss red fox skins, this sets a signal against imports from fur farms.
Fair working conditions
In production two criteria are at the top of the list: perfect quality clothing and fair working conditions for the workers.
Our partner, a small family business in Istanbul, fulfills both criteria. Royal Fox winter jackets convince with their unique quality, sewn with passion in Turkey.
What about duck downs?
Down is a type of insulation that comes from the under feathers from duck or geese. They are often plucked from the animal when they are alive which freezes them but keeps us warm. This is why RoyalFox winter jackets are deliberately lined with thermo.
Our thermo keeps you warmer than down and feels much lighter! Our jacket also mastered the outdoor test in minus conditions that were in double digits!
Even if the jacket is soaked, it hardly weighs anything. You can take them everywhere. She is as light as a feather. And all without feathers.
