Real Fur Coats: Environmentally Friendly
Real Vs Synthetic
Real fur Coats,faux fur coats;that is the question. This inquiry is not quite Shakespearean on the face of it,but a compelling existential question all the same. There has been a decades long pursuit to define the nature of the fur coat and fur related products. There are two spheres of thought regarding the legitimacy of manufactured fur product. On the one hand, there is the centuries old fur designer/manufacturer and its multitude of clientele that swear by the practicality and functional wearability of the fur coat. The other hand presents an alternative to the real fur coat by introducing synthetic(faux fur) replicating design/fashionability traits of the real fur coat. The faux fur argument supports a position of ecological “safety” over the ecologically “dismissive” practices of the real fur proponents/practitioners. Faux fur has a solid point,right? Not so fast. The leap down this particular rabbit hole does not land one where one would think.
Sizing Up Faux Fur
Faux fur is a synthetic (man made) material. Actually,lets just call it plastic,since that is what is is made of,for the most part. Faux furs are typically made from synthetic polymeric fibers such as acrylic, modacrylic, and/or polyester, all of which are essentially forms of plastic; these fibers are made from chemicals derived from coal, air, water, petroleum and limestone. By the way,all of these components are ecologically unsafe according to governmental and independent scientific research bodies.This directly undercuts the eco-friendly argument put forth by pro faux fur proponents. Conversely,fur coats are created from fur pelts from certain types of animals(living,organic creatures). These fur pelts are sourced humanely and legally and present no direct biological or ecological threat to the plant Earth. In many cases, the harvesting of these pelts are allowed under the sanction of governments and scientific bodies in the interest of overall ecological balance. These facts alone provide the basis for a deft argument against the substitution of faux fur over real fur. Then there is the practical/functional argument to be had. Lets look briefly at this.
Practicality and Functionality
Faux Fur has a heavy manufacturing presence in Asia, China in particular. The inexpensive labor and lack of in depth environmental controls,labor laws and manufacturing guidelines makes the faux fur a cost efficient product. The design and style elements for the faux fur are taken directly from real fur design/style methodologies. This gives the outward appearance of a garment that,at first glance,appears fashionable and pricey all at once. However,closer inspection gives way to the reality of inferior hair quality and gluing/stitching techniques that lend to a lack of sustained wearability over a short period of time. Real fur coats,on the other hand, are precise instruments of creation. The process is involved and requires true artisans/technicians. The Fur coat has a depth and feel and natural contour to it that can not be replicated by a faux fur coat. The sustained wearability of the fur coat can go on for twenty or more years,given proper care and maintenance and storage in warm weather months. The fashion sense of the real fur coat goes unchallenged. It has long been the object of awe and desire for centuries.
