This is a designed sheared and raccoon coat. We here in Canada have long winters. We here in Canada have a history with being close to Mother Earth. When you buy fur you are buying with nature. How? Well its simple in a world where everything is now fur is forever. It is biodegradable, it can be passed on to the next generation and it helps the enviroment more then it hurts. Just think about all the landfills and fast fashion. Just think about all the plastic that are not biodegradable and end up in our landfills. Just look at our oceans filled with so much plastic from people just dumping things. Native proverbs that were written by many aboriginals always said to be satisfied with what you have cuz mother earth can feed us but not spoil us. So in making a purchase think what you are doing with the planet. Each time you buy less you help more.
