American Legend Cooperative unifies the business of mink farmers in the United States and Canada. ALC’s marketing tactic is to supply the world’s finest mink. The Cooperative is owned by 220 members and was established to better meet the needs of the consumer ensuring quality control across the board as well as more efficient and effective marketing of their mink pelts. ALC has marketing office based in Seattle, Washington, USA. Global representatives are employed in Kastoria, Montreal, Moscow, Seoul, Shanghai, Stockholm and Tokyo.

The company is the world’s oldest fur auction house and a global powerhouse at marketing fine fur. American Legend® and Blackglama® are both exclusive to ALC. These products are a symbol of class — a statement of style. European mink, North American Wild Fur, and North American and European farmed fox are also available. It was the first American auction house to offer Russian sable.

Mink are indigenous to North America having been raised there for over a century. An evolution of the art of mink production has given American Legend the right to call it’s fur the best in the industry. Scientific research in genetics has led to innovation in the harvesting of minks as more colours and finer quality furs are possible. North America farms 10-12% of the world’s mink crop. Mink fur from this region has a shorter nap resulting in a superior quality preferred by the markets.
