Kopenhagen Fur is cooperatively owned by the members of the Danish Fur Breeders Association founded in 1930. In 1946, the association acquired ‘Kjøbenhavns Pelscentral’ and renamed it Danish Fur Auctions. Since then, the auction house has expanded to a staff of about 350 dedicated professionals. Today, Kopenhagen Fur is the name for both the association and the auction house itself. Located just outside of Copenhagen in Glostrup, Kopenhagen Fur holds five auctions a year, offering around 21 million mink skins, as well as fox, Swakara, chinchilla, seal, sable, rex rabbit and karakul skins.
