The CBC’s reporter Adam Walsh, who is currently on a fellowship from the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada has filed a series of excellent reports about the prospects of increased sales in Canadian sealskin products in China. A series of fashion shows, showcasing sealskin fashions and products, hosted by the country’s only sealskin store, Always in Vogue, highlight the possible new markets for local producers and tanneries here in Canada.
Adam goes to the northeast of China to the city of Shenyang where sealskin sales will compete in sales with the ever popular mink coats, which have been a status symbol of wealth for years. Shenyang experiences very cold winters and we think they will love sealskin to stay warm!
