Triple F.A.T. Goose is committed to the ethical sourcing and production of our products including fur and down. We take great efforts to align ourselves with establishments that work to create a more transparent environment for the sourcing of our goods and materials. We take a proactive approach in requiring all suppliers we work alongside to be certified and follow international protocols and procedures to ensure transparency.

Our coyote furs are imported and sourced from Canada by trappers who meet the Agreement on International Humane Trapping Standards (AIHTS) in Canada and the Best Management Practices (BMP) standards in the United States. The harvesting and subsequent trading of the furs are also regulated by the respective local and federal governments in Canada and the United States (additional information on these standards and protocols can be found here:  AIHTS Agreement and Best Management Practices for Trapping in the United States). We chose Canada as our coyote fur supplier due to the abundance of coyote present and the stringent regulations on wildlife.

The AIHTS and BMP standards are safeguards put in place to regulate and provide a more transparent supply chain. These standards also certify that the furs are purchased from legal licensed trappers that adhere to strict regulations and protocols that include the types traps they are authorized to use and the time of year they are allowed to hunt.

Our blue fox furs are imported and sustainably sourced from Finnish farms and are Saga certified. We choose Saga to source our fox fur as they are at the forefront of developing the highest standards for traceability and transparency.

Our down is RDS (Responsible down standard) certified. The down is also independently inspected, tested and certified by the IDFL (International Down and Feather Testing Laboratory). Our down is never live-plucked or force-fed and has passed the IDFL Downpass Traceability Standard - meeting all quality and traceability requirements.

We will continue to proactively work with industry leaders to develop new ways to provide transparency and traceability in sourcing our materials.

Triple F.A.T. Goose has ended new production of all fur-based products as of 2021.
