EMBA is the trademarked name of The Mutation Mink Breeders Association. In 1942, a group of mink fur farmers joined forces to form a marketing cooperative. These ranchers specialised in mink fur in clear bright colours to which they gave distinctive trade names. EMBA often bought full page ads in Vogue magazine in cooperation with various designers and manufacturers of mink coats and stoles to promote their exclusive products. Only mink held to the highest standard of excellence was sold under the EMBA trademark.
