    Background: Of the 8 million mink furs which are produced in the world each year, 1 million come from Sweden. At this time of year buyers from all parts of the world - Great Britain, Italy, France, the U.S.A. - flock to Stockholm for the annual fur auctions. And they purchase furs to the value of GBP2 million.

    There are more than fifty kinds of mink skins in many colours ranging from the traditional brown over pastel, silver, blue, sapphire to the most-expensive-of-all, white fur. Expensive, yes, but few women could resist a mink coat if they could afford one.
