What Is Faux Fur?

Faux fur is quite simply fake fur. Today, this material is a popular alternative to real fur. Some representations are so like the appearance of real fur that it can be hard to tell the difference.

This was not always the case. Early faux fur was often thought of as cheap or shoddy, and quite easy to separate from the “real thing.” People who could not afford true fur might choose a fake version to copy styles they could not afford. It was often associated with the lower classes.

Today, many love faux fur because it means no animal has been raised and killed for the purpose of fashion. While there are still many who love real furs, this number has steadily declined. Major designers, who once worked with real fur only, often are pressured by organizations like People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), to switch to fake furs instead. Many have felt PETA has valid points or out of their own conviction feel that there’s no need to use animals to provide fur garments.

The best faux fur tends to be made of fine acrylic fibers. Acrylic can be dyed to represent the colors and patters of real animals. This material can give a certain amount of warmth to a garment, but it will not be as warm as real fur.
