British newspaper The Sunday Times praised the furs made by Icelandic furrier Eggert Jóhannsson, who has a boutique on Skólavördustígur in central Reykjavík, in its coverage on December 7 of the pros and cons and controversy of furs.
Jóhannsson is a promoter of so-called “ethical furs” where animals are sensibly bred and harnessed. The article’s writer described the furrier’s designs as beautiful and clever, Morgunbladid reports.
The article is critical of those who prefer artificial furs, reasoning that the production of synthetics like nylon and polyester that are used for artificial furs is highly polluting. Besides, some nations depend on the sale of fur, such as Greenlanders who hunt seals.
