The Hong Kong Fur Federation was established in 1979 to coordinate Hong Kong fur trade activities and to promote its development. The vast majority of raw materials used by Hong Kong fur manufacturers are sourced from modern fur farms in Scandinavia, the USA and Canada. All wild furs come from overpopulated species so as to maintain the ecological balance. Industry players also work closely with their local governments to ensure that no endangered species are being used.
