Parajumpers supports social responsibility and sustainability in the clothing sector. We believe in providing transparent information on the use of animal products in our garments. Our use of fur is the result of careful research into traceability, sustainability and international standards.
Finland is one of the world's leading fur producing countries. In Finland, the breeding of fur animals has been part of the agricultural tradition for centuries, and helps to sustain rural populations.
The Finraccoon fur used by PARAJUMPERS, as a technical complement to some of the classic models, comes exclusively from Saga Furs farms in Finland.
Saga Furs produces only certified furs that meet strict standards of management, health and animal welfare. The standards adopted are much stricter than required by law.
Saga Furs certification is developed with the Finnish Fur Breeders' Association and includes the WelFur protocol which is a further scientific evaluation of animal welfare.
Saga Furs works with the entire fashion industry to provide fur from sustainable, ethical and controlled farms that meet the high standards of today's consumers.
North America is fortunate to have an abundance of natural resources, including many species of wildlife. More than 65,000 people work in the fur industry in Canada, and these people and their families base their income and livelihood on agriculture. PARAJUMPERS only procures coyote fur from North America that is certified and meets strict local and international animal welfare standards and laws.
The rabbit fur used by PARAJUMPERS comes from the food industry.
Our sheep fur products do not come from animals protected by CITES (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora), but from sheep that are reared in flocks. Furthermore, the skins are not tanned with whale oil or other cetacean oils.
