Alina Spiegel designed and stitched the fur cape by herself. It was part of her diploma collection „Urban Luxury„.
Ecological and environmentally friendly fur
The used fur in this collection is very ecological and environmentally friendly because the animals are NOT killed for the fur. Every year, about 450,000 red foxes are shot in Germany because they don’t have any natural enemies there. Only about 15,000 skins are recycled, the rest is carelessly discarded. It would be a pity to led this precious material rotten in the forest and import cheap Chinese fur products instead. Since this is a waste of a high-quality, renewable resource, the German furriers launched the Red Fox Award to use the ecological fur. Alina Spiegel participated the Red Fox Award in 2014.
