The artisans working for the brand have inherited their knowhow from their grandfathers and fathers, and still use the same simple tools for their work that have been a part of the company since the 18th century. Endless hours of labour and skill go into making each and every piece and the work is demanding. It requires a keen eye for style that the team at Skandinavik Fur have honed perfectly.

Skandinavik Fur’s interview
1)When did you decide to open an online fur shop and why?
Our business is located in Siatista Greece where along with Kastoria the history of fur making dates back to the 16th century. Traders would purchase pelts from Constantinople and proccess them into garments in Siatista and then distribute them back to Central Europe. Our story begins with my grandfather who became a fur maker in the ’60s and then passed the trade to my father. Naturally, I and my brother were exposed to a fur making environment and despite our studies were in totally different fields than fur, our love for our hometown and fur making led us back to the family business. In 2007 we decided to go online and created the brand Skandinavik Fur. The name is a tribute to Skandinavia where most of our pelts come from. Going online was a natural solution to showcase our products globally.
2)What are your furs different from?
It is true that the fur market has to offer a variety of products. Although we handle almost any fur type we take pride in our fully let out coats, our sectional coats, and our chinchilla furs. The fully let out technique requires experience, skill, and patience, qualities that our furriers have mastered. Although it is a time-consuming procedure and many fur makers have abandoned it, the aesthetic result and the swinging motion it offers to a fur garment are unique. The sectional fur making techniques that we use, such as half skins, chevron patterns, oval patterns etc produce unique looks that are rare to find.
Furthermore, the sectional fur coats represent our holistic philosophy and respect for nature’s resources. Nothing goes wasted and with deep knowledge, patience, imagination, and skill you can turn fur leftovers to gorgeous fashion items.
3)Why buy fur in your shop? What guarantees do you give?
When buying from Skandinavik Fur you are buying directly from an experienced fur maker that can provide support, knowledge, and aftercare. Our dedicated “Make Your Own” page makes custom orders a piece of cake for the buyer to create the fur of their dreams. Send us a photo or sketch of the fur of your preference and we can make it happen.
4)Which models do you sell the most? (Scarves, Mink, Blankets)
Mink, fox, chinchilla, sable, lynx, blankets and collars comprise the majority of our sales
5)Do you sell a lot of men’s fur?
It is true that traditionally fur was associated with women. However, a man’s fur coat can be a really cool addition to man’s wardrobe and in the past years we receive an increasing amount of men’s fur coat orders. Clients that want a “macho” look are opting for coyote or fin raccoon bomber jackets. Chinchilla coats are popular among celebrities especially rappers and a long fox coat with a notched collar can look very majestic. For a more elegant look, they choose mink. For those who are more conservative a fur-lined parka or a leather jacket lined with fur , are excellent choices.
6) I love your blog very much especially this post – how often do you post?Thank you for the compliment. To be honest we do not post very often. However, when we do, we want to make sure that the information in our blogs educates the fur consumer and provides valuable insights to the fur industry.
7)Any previews of your new collection?
We are adding new pieces all year long
8)Will you come to TheOneMilano? If yes see you there.
