As every country has their own traditions, so does The Netherlands. This tradition, named Carnaval, is especially popular in the southern part. Each year ‘Carnaval’ is celebrated for 4 days. This year the festival runs from 9 to 14 February.
A highlight of the event is the naming of a prince. For 2018, the prince of De Rips will be Bob van Ansem; a third generation Mink farmer in the van Ansem Group.
The tradition dictates that the prince has to wear a cape with fur trim for these four days. For this occasion, the van Ansem Group created a cape with sumptuous white Unicorn Mink.
Bob exclaimed ‘Dees Carnaval kan ut nie bont zat’ (This Carnaval will be very furry)
Alaaf, Alaaf, Alaaf!
