This decorative twist requires a skilled hand at the complex technique of INTARSIA to deliver the fantastically creative and visually arresting results. Intarsia, in case you forgot, is a very time-consuming fur design treatment paralleling découpage in which individual swatches of fur are sewn together in a mosaic-like manner. This technique requires a fully developed and thematic design in advance in order to combine chosen fur types and colors, precisely cut the sections with a razor blade and sew them into a given arrangement.

Some actually reference works of art and art movements. These creations are undeniably not for wallflower types, but their subversive cool-factor is influential.
