Purchasing of skin and tanning

Alex Petersen sees it as their most important task, to be able to deliver one of the world’s finest fur products. Since 1903, the choice of the finest raw materials has been one of Alex Petersen’s main tasks. Today we travel around the world to be present at the best fur auctions.

Alex Petersen prefer auctions such as St. Petersburg, where trading in the world’s most exclusive sable fur, and Vancouver, which is known for American Black Gamma Five Star Mink. In addition, the fine Danish Saga Royal Mink also are included in our supply of raw materials.

Immediately after the selection and purchase of raw material, we then send our skins to Milan, where the world’s best tanneries are located. The Italian tanning art is the best in the world, and we prefer this method for our furs. Softness and ease characterize always a true Alex Petersen’s fur.
