Indeed, he affirms, on a global scale, the existing stocks of available fur parts are sufficient to ensure the production of new parts with quality standards of the new, without calling new skins, that is to say without breeding no slaughter for the next 30 years.
Sites specializing in the sale of second-hand parts are full of old-fashioned fur pieces accessible at lower prices than the raw material, new skins!
It is from this observation, and maturing, with time, a certain reluctance towards the fur production sector that Quentin Véron decides to fundamentally review his trade. “I love what I do, but the fun is in the craft! and that pleasure is marred by the nagging ulterior motive that, of course, animals were mass bred for their skins.
Without going into antispecism or the rhetoric trivializing the farming of the sector, there is a third way, which is common sense, consisting in exploiting the colossal dormant furs stock.
A fur can have nine lives: disassembled, washed, treated and reconditioned, these parts represent a source of raw material of equivalent quality to the new, at very lower prices and without the slaughter of new animals!
It is a virtuous up-cycling: “beyond my own brand, made exclusively from old coats, I plan to found a factory dedicated to the production of reconditioned skins from second-hand parts. I want to create a source of intelligent raw material, without slaughter.”
