Fuzzy, fluffy fur coats, vests and boots are snuggly and lovely. To many people, wearing clothing made out of real fur is a no no, for both the animal and the person draped in the soft duds.
Welcome, faux fur!
Faux fur, also called fun fur and fake fur, is any material made of synthetic fibers designed to resemble real fur, normally as part of a piece of clothing. Faux fur can be sewn on a sewing machine. While faux fur contains the warmth, glamour and high fashion essence that real fur provides, unlike natural fur, fake fur is ethical and animal cruelty free!
Create a stir wrapped in fabulous faux fur!
Faux Fur Fun Fact: Fake fur isn’t only used in clothing. Faux fur is used to make stuffed animals, fashion accessories and home decorations, such as pillows, bedding and throw items.
Faux fur was first introduced in 1929 and has been commercially available since the 1950s, but the faux fur’s increase in popularity has been credited to its promotion by animal rights and animal welfare organizations, which claim that faux fur rocks in the fact that it saves the lives of innocent animals.
“Excuse me, you are looking quite foxy in that fluffy fox fur that you are wearing.”
