One of the most valuable but unpleasant parts of using fur in clothing is staining it so that the white skin does not show through between the hairs.
In the images here, the fur department at Zilli in Lyon, southern France is staining the back of several furs. They are stapled onto a large wooden board before being painted and the whole board turned over, so they can be baked dry by heaters underneath the board.
The before and after shots are shown below. When the air or a curve of cloth separates the hairs, no white skin interrupts the luscious black surface. Most of these will be added as collar trims to Zilli's beautiful leather jackets.
