Ethical Sourcing and Animal Welfare: Furmoo Commitment

Ethical Sourcing and Animal Welfare: Furmoo Commitment

At Furmoo, we believe that the way we source our materials matters. Our commitment to ethical sourcing and animal welfare is at the heart of everything we do. Here's how we ensure that our practices align with our values.

By-Products of the Meat Industry

We take pride in the fact that all our materials are by-products of the meat industry. This means we do not support the raising of animals solely for their skins or pelts. By utilising by-products, we minimise waste and contribute to a more sustainable cycle of resource use.

Compliance with Global Standards

Our suppliers are carefully selected based on their adherence to stringent global standards for leather manufacturing and animal welfare. Two key certifications we rely on are:

  • Leather Working Group (LWG): Established in 2005, LWG sets high benchmarks for environmental management, traceability, chemical management, social responsibility, and governance within the leather industry. Their audit protocols ensure that our suppliers maintain responsible practices across the board.
  • Woolmark Certification: Known as the gold standard in textile and fiber certification, Woolmark assures the quality and traceability of Merino wool, recognised as the most comfortable wool in the world. Each product batch has a unique number, ensuring full traceability through the supply chain.

Prioritising Traceability and ESG Metrics

We prioritise traceability and adhere to Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) metrics to uphold the highest standards in animal welfare. This approach ensures that every step of our supply chain is transparent and accountable.

Merino Wool Excellence

Our Merino wool products not only meet Woolmark’s rigorous quality standards but also provide exceptional comfort. Woolmark certification guarantees that our wool is of the highest quality and can be traced back to its source, ensuring authenticity and sustainability.

Our Dedication to Quality

At Furmoo, our dedication to high standards in both products and services is unwavering. We are committed to sourcing materials responsibly, crafting with care, and delivering products that reflect our values of ethical sourcing and animal welfare.
