Reich Furs was founded in the 1940s post-WWII when trailblazing women planted seeds of change for women in future generations. Fur was a woman’s choice – her own purchase. Charlie Reich, originally a skin trader, saw the tides change and fashioned modern coats for women who were silver screen goddesses in their own homes. That was then.
Today, the traditions continue in New York City, where Reich Furs serves as a creative hub for designers and technicians to collaborate on innovative and luxurious fur outerwear, accessories, and trimmings. Reich Furs has evolved into a vertically integrated fashion organization encompassing international fur sourcing, development, manufacturing and distribution. Staff is available for design consultation on custom pieces and fur maintenance on existing pieces such as cold storage, cleaning, refurbishing and remodeling.
Reich Furs is the secret weapon behind many of the most highly coveted American, European and Asian brands. The pieces are often seen on the runways during New York, London, and Paris fashion week as well as on the backs of the most sought-after celebrities and influencers. Go to any one of the top global luxury department stores or boutiques and chances are you will find Reich Furs product.
