Furs are purchased from a variety of places including local shops and online vendors.
When picking furs and fabrics for your project, we will do our best to match your reference sheet.
Sometimes a color is hard to find, discontinued, or simply doesn't exist.
In cases like this, we will work with you to find the best match.
If we think there is no substitute, or you aren't happy with any of the options presented, we may refund you and choose not to move forward with the project.
We want you to be happy with your suit, and if you are not happy with the color options available, we may not be the right maker for you.
We do NOT accept materials from clients.
If you have a special fur color you need or would like, you can send us the purchase link and we will buy it for your project.
We do not work on headbases provided by the client.
We do not finish projects that another maker/client has already started. All work is done here in the studio from scratch.
If you're looking to match an existing suit, please provide the names and types of fur so that we can match materials for you.
In some cases, matching very old or rare fur is impossible. Dye lots change and furs go out of production.
A substitute may be needed in order to take on your project. Otherwise we may turn it down.
