designers’ favourite fur
Swakara fur, which comes from the arid regions of Namibia is amongst designers’ favourite choice of material for garments and accessories. The Swakara industry provides communities with essential income and contributes to the economy of the country.
Agra is proud to be associated with this wonderful product, an eco-fur that is sought after globally. Agra serves the Swakara industry in three key areas, namely; the marketing of the pelts, the management of the Swakara Board (an SOE under the Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Forestry) and the management of the Swakara Breeders’ Society, which was established in 1919.
Agra is the sole marketing agent for the sought-after Swakara pelts. Agra’s Pelt Centre is responsible for collecting, sorting, packaging and dispatching pelts destined for International Fur Fashion markets.
Agra is also actively involved in the selling of breeding stock, either by auction or through direct liaison services.
