A Canadian Heritage
On my latest trip to Montreal, I splurged on this furry piece by longstanding Canadian brand Rudsak. My love of fur dates way back to my early childhood, when the scent of my grand-mother’s perfume embedded in her fur coat etched my memory.
I recall being fascinated by the allure and feel of her furs. In them I found sophistication, opulence and comfort. A sense of grandeur.
I have since managed my very own little collection of furs. Among them is a vintage family heirloom which still bears my grandmother’s name stitched into the lining. Mr B surprised me with an appointment to have it redesigned by Mariouche’s team at Harricana.
Fur hasn’t always enjoyed a good reputation. But responsible sourcing, its lifespan as a textile, and recycling combined arguably make Canadian fur appealing at a time when fast fashion has fuelled mass production of poor quality garments that find the grave within a mere season.
Plus, as my friends the grazing cows and horses will tell you, nothing beats fur on a frigid Canadian winter day.
