North American Fur Auctions continues an over 345-year tradition of supplying the highest quality collection of fur, responsibly obtained from sustainable sources, to the world’s fashion community. We believe that it is crucial to ensure our products are ethically sourced from producers who uphold the highest standards in environmental stewardship, animal welfare and sustainability. NAFA’s Ethical Sourcing program was developed to give our customers the confidence that NAFA Certified™ furs are sourced from responsibly managed, abundant populations of ranched and wild fur. Certification is an industry wide initiative, developed and supported in all major fur producing regions. NAFA works closely with industry organizations to ensure that fur remains a responsible choice for the future. We believe that quality products stem from the source. NAFA receives fur from family-run, professionally managed fur farms in North America and Europe, and community-based, independent fur harvesters across North America. NAFA Certified™ furs are the result of a specialized process that requires a significant amount of craftsmanship, knowledge, and adherence to high ethical standards in the treatment of animals and the environment. By the year 2020, NAFA will offer both wild and ranch certified furs, recognized by brands and consumers around the world.
