A small family run company from New Zealand that expertly make Brushtail Possum Fur products. With 40 years experience their furriers source and treat the pelts in order to make the very best quality products. Which they then do with the same attention to detail.
The fibres of Possum Fur are hollow, trapping warm air. The only other animal with this astonishing insulating fur is the Polar Bear. The trapped air not only retains heat efficiently but makes the fur light in weight.
The Brushtail Possum is an introduced species to New Zealand and has no natural preditor there and so is an environmental disaster with numbers out of control. They strip the leaves off trees and eat the eggs and baby birds, in particularly the ground nesting flightless birds, native to New Zealand. The Brushtail Possum is protected in Australia where they are from, so it is not under any threat at all but it is a very real threat to the flora and fauna of New Zealand. As such there is a policy to reduce numbers there significantly and by buying Possum Fur products from New Zealand it is helping to save their forest and birds from this man made threat.
