What is Eskimo/Lapin?
Eskimo/Lapin is not a business or a capitalist endeavor. Disques de Lapin is not a record label. Eskimo Films is not a film studio. Lapinism is the ideal, and Eskimo/Lapin is the tool for achieving it.

A: We offer these releases for sale in a non-profit sort of mentality. Monies obtained through the shoppe are put towards making more releases, putting on events and (most importantly) paying for two animals who we sponsor. One is a goose named Rachael and the other is a rabbit gentleman named Dagwood:
Both of these friends are at Farm Sanctuary, a charity we believe in. They rescue animals from people who mean to murder them in slaughterhouses and things of that horrific nature. Visit their website, read up and give money to them, if you can.

Q: I AM POOR.
A: That is a statement, not a question. If you would like an Eskimo / Lapin release but are short on shekels, contact us. Perhaps we can work something out for free.
