We're phasing it out. Please note that Coeva Vintage does not support or condone the fur industry and offers very limited vintage fur pieces. We choose to honour the life that was unfortunately taken, by using the garment for its intended purpose.

We acknowledge the conundrum of wearing vintage fur versus synthetic fibers that a majority of "cruelty-free" garments are made of. When given the option of already available garments / slow fashion, or fast fashion, what is the most sustainable option? 

(a) buying and using the 20-80 year old pelts of a finite number of animals thus fulfilling the intended purpose of the garment rather than it going to landfill.

or

(b) buying and using new pieces made of synthetic fibers, which perpetuate petroleum dependence; or natural fibers like cotton which is wasteful. On average, it takes approximately 10,000 litres of water to produce one kilogram of cotton fabric - that's 8,000 litres for just 1 new pair of cotton jeans.

ost likely, yes. We ship internationally although there are a few exceptions. For full information on shipping, please click here.
