Part 9. Period of the 2nd World War

During the 2nd World War international trade was forbidden in most of the countries, making influence on fur fashion as well. The countries which had previously imported fur, in order to satisfy the market demand, during the said period had to resort to their own resources. For instance, in Italy leopard fur was replaced by rabbit, sheep, beaver fur and even certain types of mouse fur. The situation in France and England was similar. Thus, fur fashion also had to transform and adapt to the changed social and political situation; still, we cannot say that fur fashion in Europe decreased. At that...

At the beginning of the 20th century, fur fashion was steadily developing with fur prices going up. At the same time designers’ imagination was also expanding when designing and experimenting with new, interesting models. Fur coats were typically sown of ermine or otter. At that time short fur coats and fur cuffs came into fashion. Using animal heads and tails as outfit accessories was highly fashionable as well.

Women skirts were getting shorter and fur cloaks were getting longer.


It is worthy to mention that the new century witnessed the issue of first fur magazines and catalogues.

Largest fur companies of that period

As we‘ve already mentioned in our last piece of the blog, the boom of fur lasted throughout the years 1800-1850. At that time both women and men wore fur clothing. That uprising was partially due to shipping of fur from America and Canada in extremely huge quantities. One of the largest-scale fur companies of that time to be mentioned were “North West Company” set up in 1783 and “Hudson’ Bay Company” set up in 1670. The company “Misouri Fur Company” should also not be left out which is known to have exported the greatest quantity of beaver fur to Europe.

According to the laws of that time, married women could not keep more than 2 articles made of fur. Furriers earned a good deal of money; therefore, a lot of taxes were...

In the Middle Ages fur accessories became extremely fashionable and served as decorative and luxurious outfit for noblemen. Medieval clothes provided information not only about the wealth of a person but also showed the status of the person wearing them. For example, only Royalty were permitted to wear clothes trimmed with ermine fur. The very Charlemagne (Charles the Great) always wore fur clothing which included cloaks trimmed with expensive ermine, petit-gris and fox fur. Seeking to purchase fur at a lower price, this king even reduced duties of fur import into the Roman Empire.
