Lots of variety of rabbit fur exists and is used by furriers (rex, angora, etc…) But one of them is exceptional, they are the outcome of research and what’s more they are French -Orylag whose softness and finesse are unanimously recognised.
Orylag is exclusively produced by the farming cooperative of orylag (CEO), based in Surgères in Charente-Maritime. It is a high quality product, used more for its body (under the protected designation of Poitou rabbit) than for its marvellous fur (Orylag).
The attention paid to this product throughout its maturity offer a quality of leather equal to that of mink and the fur is equivalent to that of chinchilla. There are two base colours, a shade of brown called “castor” and a mottled grey called “chinchilla” which are added together to make “ash”.
Now, dyed and worked on, Orylag is used by the big fashion houses (Fendi, Dior, Galliano) and by the biggest stylists.
