Committed to quality: three stories from our April Top Lot winners
Kopenhagen Fur’s last April auction featured three exceptional Top Lots: Silverblue velvet males, Black Velvet females, and Chinchilla. For our three Top Lot winners, quality still proves its worth in times of crisis.
Top Lot in Silverblue Velvet males: Guida / Orsaya
Guida is a consolidated Italian skin broker with over 50 years of fur craftsmanship experience and a pioneer in the slow fashion movement since the company’s beginnings as a vintage fur store. For Guida, the importance of a transparent supply chain has only but increased, as they stand as ambassadors of their customers to purchase only the top quality furs meeting the highest traceability and welfare standards.
During Kopenhagen Fur’s April auction, Guida purchased our Silverblue female Top Lot for its valued customer, Shenzhen Twins Clothing and their online brand, Orsaya, for a price of 1140 DKK per skin. The Silverblue Top Lot is an excellent match to Orsaya’s commercial strategy, which is based on using superior quality materials to attract long-term customers. Now, Orsaya is looking forward to collaborating with Kopenhagen Fur Studio.
Top Lot in Black Velvet females: QiYu Fur
An experienced customer at our auctions, Mrs. Liu Zihan from online retailer QiYu Fur brought home her first Kopenhagen Fur Top Lot for the GuShaDiAo brand, at a price of 700 DKK per skin.
