My dear fashionistas, I hope you are well and ready for a new fashion adventure in this new year 2023! Winter is my favorite period for fashion experimentation, so this season I decided to present you some new brands and interesting fashion pieces that won my heart!
Fur is an integral part of every winter, as you could see in my lady mom’s fashion stories. Last year, I introduced you to an extremely important FURMARK project that marks a turning point in the world of the fur fashion industry. The International Fur Federation has developed a formal certification and traceability process, Furmark®. Fur is one of the most sustainable natural materials in the world of fashion. The use of organic materials is a complete contrast and rejection of fast and “plastic” fashion, which are typical petroleum derivatives. Fur is the true epitome of slow fashion, treated as an heirloom purchase that can last for generations.
Developed in consultation with conscientious consumers and modern fashion groups and brands, the Furmark® symbol is a sign of guaranteed quality and trust. In order for consumers, retailers and brands to have complete security and confidence when buying fur, Furmark® combines independently verified certification programs within one system. Obtaining a certificate means that the international, national or regional program has met Furmark® global standards.
First, I would like to summarize some of the basic benefits of Furmark certified products:
1. Furmark® is a global certification and traceability system for natural fur that guarantees animal welfare and respect for all environmental standards.
2. Furmark® is simple with recognizable characteristics of quality, safety, and confidence that is of utmost importance to all members of the supply chain and customers.
3. Furmark® programs for animal protection and environmental protection are scientifically based, third-party certified and transparent.
4. Furmark® products are traceable, verified and guaranteed meet all necessary recognized standards.
5. Furmark® is the result of the joint efforts of fur industry members, brand representatives and consumers.
The Furmark® certification system was developed by the International Fur Federation (IFF) with associated members, who are eminent representatives of luxury brands, all of which work with natural fur as part of the supply chain.
There are three key principles on which this certification is based: science, independent inspection and transparency.
Furmark® is a comprehensive global certification and monitoring system for the natural fur production chain that guarantees animal welfare and compliance with all existing environmental standards. The Furmark certification system includes only wild and farmed natural fur from leading animal protection programs (including the first animal welfare program introduced based on data from the European Commission on self-regulation and co-regulatory initiatives). For more additional information on Furmark Global Certification and Natural Fur Chain Tracking System, you can read my special post at the following link.
In today’s post, I will introduce you to the most famous Turkish fur and leather brand PUNTO, which is at the very top of the fashion industry. PUNTO is a well-known Turkish brand founded in 1994 as a manufacturer of clothing and fashion accessories made of leather and fur. Punto is today a leader in its sector both in Turkey and on the world market.
Over the past years, Punto Group has risen to an eminent position in the luxury fashion industry. Through unique collections, this unusual Turkish fashion house always tries to follow all the current world trends, as well as to set new tasks for entering new avant-garde fashion territories.
As a global brand, fashion house PUNTO strives to attract the attention of customers with its appreciation for luxury items and unconditional attention to product presentation. In the Punto Group, the main goal is to offer exceptionally high-quality products, top selling locations and authentic prices. One thing is certain, all PUNTO products meet these important and highly valued customer requirements.
PUNTO has a wide selection of products in its rich offer and this has helped this fashion house to build a strong and stable base of loyal clients. The PUNTO management team believes that it is very important to maintain sincere long-term relationships with customers.
The main and priority task of the PUNTO company is true customer satisfaction. One of the main components for maintaining high satisfaction is the special after-sales service. The service offered by fashion house PUNTO after the product purchase is impeccable and their team is always at the service of their customers, because clients should enjoy an endless variety of luxury service.
When you buy your first PUNTO product, you are more than a customer because you become part of the big fashion family of the Punto Group. The fashion house PUNTO tries to maintain these valuable relationships, taking care to know who their clients are at all times and constantly informing them about special benefits and promotions. Members of the Punto family are always invited to special and carefully designed events where new collections are presented and some nice news are announced.
With the experienced PUNTO team of designers and the skilled support of the research and development department, the Punto Group has managed to inspire countless international brands. The PUNTO design team strives to create a variety of collections, with the main focus on customer needs and preferences while following current fashion trends.
Tailoring is the art of custom styling. The passion of the expert PUNTO team for personalization is also the promise to deliver clothes tailored to your individual needs. This promise starts with choosing the best quality natural fur and leather.
Specialists of the fashion house Punto, who provide a special tailoring service, are always at your disposal. The freedom to choose your own style in the Punto atelier and stores is the true definition of luxury and exclusive service. For this unique and unusual experience, you need to visit one of the punto shops.
In today’s fashion story, I present to you a jacket made of the finest mink from the latest PUNTO Autumn – Winter 2022/23 collection, soft cappuccino, taupe color, shades between beige and drape, which won my heart at a very first sight. The collar is a classic English high double-sided mink fur, two pockets with a hidden fastener and of course the inevitable zipper closure.
Sustainable fashion is a movement and process of encouraging change in fashion products and the fashion system towards greater ecological integrity and social justice. Sustainable fashion at PUNTO house is about more than addressing fashion textiles or products. It consists of addressing the entire fashion system. This means dealing with interdependent social, cultural, ecological and financial systems. It also means looking at fashion from the perspective of many stakeholders – users and producers, all living species, current and future inhabitants of the earth.
Sustainable fashion therefore belongs to and is the responsibility of citizens, public and private sectors. A key example of the need for systems thinking in fashion is that the benefits of product-level initiatives, such as replacing one type of fiber with a less environmentally damaging option, are being drowned out by increasing the volume of fashion products.
Feel a special shopping experience in several stores in Istanbul as well as in Antalya. Punto Group has always been proud to raise customer satisfaction to the highest level through luxury service tailored to each customer. The PUNTO team has a developed awareness of the importance of quality private shopping service. If you wish, there is a possibility of a VIP free transfer from your hotel to the PUNTO factory shop by private luxury cars with the provision of a unique VIP catering service during your stay in the PUNTO shop.
If you want to stay updated and find out what models of outerwear, clothing and accessories made of leather and fur the Turkish brand PUNTO has in its offer, visit their official website and follow them on Facebook and Instagram.
