Fake Fur Fabric / Faux Fur
About Fake Fur / Faux Fur
Fake fur, also called fun fur or faux fur, is any material made of synthetic fibers designed to resemble fur, normally as part of a piece of clothing. It was first introduced in 1929 and has been commercially available since the 1950s, but its increasing popularity has been credited to its promotion by animal rights and animal welfare organizations which claim that it is an animal-friendly alternative to traditional fur clothing
Fake fur is here to stay. Elegant and luxurious, faux fur is perfect for vests, stoles, jackets, cuffs, costumes, and accessories. Not only does it look like real fur, it’s cheaper and animal-friendly.

Disadvantages of Fake Fur / Faux Fur
-Fake fur is not as insulating and does not allow the skin to breath as much as real fur.
-Fake fur is made from several materials including blends of acrylic and modacrylic polymers derived from coal, air, water, petroleum and limestone. These materials can take a long time to break down, possibly anywhere from 500 to 1,000 years.
-Fake furs are not able to keep snow from melting and re-freezing on the fiber filaments; this is very important, especially in hiking, mountain climbing, skiing and other outdoor activities which are done in extreme conditions.
