Where is the best place to display your new exquisite fur garment? If you are anyone with style and grace you know there is no better place than at the Polo tournament on ice in St. Moritz, Switzerland. This is the only event in the world where dress code requires one to wear a fur garment. So it is the best place for you to display your new or vintage furs.

This year, on February 26-27, the 2016 edition of the Snow Polo Tremblant International Tournament took place, another great place to showcase your furs.

Lightweight, warm and beautiful, fur is a true gift of nature.

The beauty of fur reminds us of the importance of protecting nature, our environmental “capital”, so that future generations may also enjoy these gifts.

The fact that fur garments are long lasting and recyclable also makes ecological sense.

For all these reasons, we feel that fur is an excellent choice at a time when we are all concerned about protecting nature.

Don’t worry if your coat seems out-of-date. One of the remarkable advantages of fur is that it can be re-styled (“remodeled”) as fashions change. It is a remarkably long-lasting clothing material.

Many old fur coats or jackets now could be successfully transformed: the coat is taken apart, fur is sheared or dyed, leather, wool or other material added and a new look is created.

Your old fur coat can even be “recycled” to make bags, pillows, throws or other accessories.

Royal Fur Club has lots of successful stories about reinventing your old fur coat into a new fashion design.
