Fur and sustainability methods
'Fur and Sustainability - Design for Longevity' - is a tool consisting of 35 cards developed by Karen Marie Hasling and Ulla Ræbild from Design School Kolding. The cards are a result of a large collaboration between Kopenhagen Fur and Design School Kolding on a project about influencing and extending product lifetime in order to reduce environmental impact. The project looked at ways to approach sustainability through the perspective of product lifetime in design practice and followed two designers collaborating with Kopenhagen Fur.
The cards are intended as a navigation tool to inspire designers and furriers to work with longevity as a sustainable strategy.
