About seal fur
For people who are unfamiliar with sealskin, they may feel hesitant to try sealskin products. However, seal products are good for you and good for the environment. Seal fur is a sustainable and eco-friendly material. Seal fur, unlike synthetic textiles, is a natural fabric that will degrade gradually over time, leaving a minor environmental effect. In contrast, synthetic fabrics, such as faux fur, are frequently produced from petroleum-based materials and do not biodegrade, leading to more waste and pollution.
Seal fur is a renewable and sustainable material since the seal is a natural and abundant resource. Seal populations are at the highest level in history today and controlling seal population is one proven method we can use to help in the recovery of fish stocks. The annual seal harvest helps to the preservation of marine biodiversity. Seals are harvested in a sustainable manner with strict quotas which are far from being reached.
Seal fur is also a traditional Indigenous material that holds deep cultural significance. By purchasing seal products, you not only support and empower Indigenous communities but also have the opportunity to appreciate and enjoy rich Indigenous artistic traditions.
BWSealStyle’s accessory collection, crafted from seal fur, offers a unique and environmentally conscious way to express your style and embrace nature. Beverley King’s passion for sealskin and her artistic talent shine through in each meticulously crafted piece. By wearing BWSealStyle’s accessories, you not only support the creative work of Beverley King but also contributes to the preservation and appreciation of Indigenous art traditions. So, this summer, embrace the beauty of seal fur and let BWSealStyle’s accessory collection become an extension of your personality.
