Brand Feature: Adolfo Fernandez

Adolfo Fernandez is a Chilean fashion designer who fell in love with fur after a course at the Saga Furs Design Center in Copenhagen. There, he learnt about mink, fox and finnraccon, but upon his return to Chile, he chose to work exclusively with chinchilla. Chinchilla is native to Chile, and he has been able to forge relationships with people in the industry, to ensure the best breeds and excellent dressing. Another example of how fur can be green, when a designer works with raw materials that they source from their own country.

At the moment, his products are only available by private order (contact him through his Flickr page or by email, contacto@adolfofernandez.cl) but we are very much looking forward to seeing this new fur talent grow and expand his business.

  1. Chinchilla is a very beautiful animal, small, cuddly and very tame. Beautiful that we can take it to hundreds in our clothes, they have a beautiful coat, ideal for coats and jackets
