Fur types

Mink skins

Mink skins are some some of the world's most exclusive and sought-after fur materials. In spite of its soft and delicate nature the material is quite durable and this, along with the warmth of the fur, makes it the perfect choice for elegant winter wear. But mink skins can also be used for accessories, interior design etc.

Mink comes in an array of types, colours and qualities but common for the skins from Kopenhagen Fur is their exceptional quality, recognised by the even, dense and voluminous fur.



Fox skins

Fox fur is a long-haired thick and dense fur. It comes in many types, with upwards of 20 different natural colours including various shades of black, red, brown and white.

The hairs are longer and more easily recognisable than on any other type of fur, and fox fur is therefore a treasured material for trimmings and accessories. A certain amount of natural shedding should be expected because of the length and thickness of the hair.



Swakara is the name of a specific breed of karakul sheep from Namibia. Significantly different to that of Central Asian karakul, the character and excellent standard of swakara can be found nowhere else in the world. This makes swakara pelts some of the most coveted fur in the world.

The significant feature of swakara is its curls, forming a surface tracery. The signature pattern of swakara is flat, silky and elegant. The soft and supple skin makes the material fit for almost any style, from skirt to jacket.



Chinchilla skins

Chinchilla fur is a soft and dense fur, almost silky to the touch. Due to the fur's look and feel, chinchilla furs are regarded as one of the most exclusive materials available. Most chinchillas have a beautiful blue-grey colour, darkest on the back shading to a lighter grey on the sides. However, several other colours are available such as white, ebony, violet and sapphire.

The fur is very warm, despite being one of the lightest. However, it's a very delicate fur – it needs much care and is not resistant to damp weather.
