Animal lovers can rest assured knowing that the synthetic process used to make faux fur fabric has become so advanced that it's often hard to tell the real and man-made apart. But, sometimes you're not always buying fake fur when you think you are—despite the label, many allegedly faux pieces include the real deal. A tell tale sign is checking the base of the fabric: Leather or skin is a giveaway that it's real, while fake fur typically has a fabric backing.
Natural animal hair often tapers off at the tips and the faux version has blunter, straight edges. It's a personal choice to wear real or faux fur, but it’s good to know what you're buying. "I felt it was important to offer all styles in both real and faux to allow my customers to decide their preference, I prefer textured rabbit faux fur."says a designer, who exclusively uses ethically sourced fur that is origin assured.
