About Bear Skin World

Assorted Bears

Bear Skin World is owned and operated by Fur Source Canada, an established Canadian fur company that specializes in high quality Northern Canada fur and wildlife products.

Bear Skin World was established as a division of Fur Source Canada to specialize in Bear Skin Rugs and Taxidermy Mounts from the abundant trophy quality wildlife available in Northern Canada and the Rocky Mountains.

When you shop at Bear Skin World online you will pay much less than you would pay in a retail store for the same item. Our rugs and mounts are shipped directly from the taxidermy studio to our customers. You can avoid the middle men and take advantage of wholesale prices.

Fur Source Canada is located on the northern prairies of Canada, where black bears, grizzly bears, wolf, etc. are in abundance. All of the animals sold by us are legally and ethically harvested. Many skins are purchased from Inuit (Eskimo) hunters in the arctic who use the meat of the animal for food and sell the skins to trading posts as their source of income.

Canada is known to have some of the coldest winters of any country in the world. As you may know, the further north, the better quality of the fur, simply because of the cold weather conditions. Almost all of our skins are sourced from northern Canada and as a result we are able to offer animal rugs with very thick, dense, beautiful fur that cannot be found anywhere else in the world.

Our head office and main shipping location is located in Winnipeg Manitoba Canada. We also ship some items from Texas and Montana U.S.A.

Our staff is very friendly and will be happy to answer any questions you have or take your order over the phone. Contact Us.

Quality is extremely important to us. Your satisfaction is our reputation and we take great pride in satisfying all of our customers. We inspect all of our raw materials, utilize only prime quality fur and skins, and inspect every single finished product before it gets to your door. If for any reason you are not happy with your purchase you may return it for a full refund. See our “return policy” page for more details.

Tips & Tools

Fur storage

Never keep your fur in a plastic bag.  Your fur too requires proper air circulation; Use a cloth bag when traveling or transporting your fur to and from cold storage.  The smell of both moth and cedar balls often adheres to fur and creates unpleasant odors.

Fur care
  • Unless you have a very delicate fur like chinchilla, your fur is a fairly durable item and simply must be treated with common sense.  Furs like cold, hate heat.  They don’t like friction, or chemicals.  They like space, and to be cleaned. – but, only by a fur professional.
  • Give it a good home. Be sure to store your fur in a closet that is not exposed to light (which will fade your fur) or heat. Make sure it has room to breathe and is not crushed by other garments.
  • Avoid insecticides, moth proofing, and other chemicals around on your fur, including perfumes, hairspray and makeup.  Perfume contains alcohol, which can dry your pelts. Once a perfume gets into your fur-including cedar from a cedar chest- it will be there to stay.
  • If your fur gets wet, don’t panic.  Most furs can handle a little bit of moisture, if it gets wet hang it to dry in a well ventilated room. Please resist the temptation to speed the drying process with a hairdryer or near a heat source.  Remember furs do not like heat.  After it dries you can then shake it again. Comb or brush it gently if the hairs seem a little bristly.  If your fur has been soaked thru, however, take it immediately to your fur retailer for proper treatment.
  • In the off season it doesnt hurt to send your fur to your local furrier for professional storage. This is optional but will ensure your hat stays in good condition through the warm months.
  • If your fur gets dirty have it cleaned by a professional fur cleaner. Besides just cleaning, this conditions your fur.  Glazing is a process that replenishes oils to maintain a furs longevity. You may consider taking your fur to a furrier for glazing if you find that it needs to be refreshed.
