Zilli: dying the furs

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.


 
Look out for more on Zilli later in the week

Zilli would like it known that it only uses the fur from breeding animals

Would welcome an article on Ashtrakhan (the real and faux)?

LUXURY= quality
maison ZILLI is the top  in rare  materials in the luxury sector. I experience one of their  racoon collar coat. The racoon is soft and the colour is not faded
