Real Fur Coats: Environmentally Friendly


Real fur Coats or faux fur coats; that is the question. This inquiry is not quite Shakespearean on its face, but a compelling existential question all the same. There has been a decade’s 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 products. 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

Real Fur Vs Faux Fur

Faux fur is a synthetic (human-made) material. Let’s call it plastic since that is what its made from. Faux furs made from synthetic polymeric fibers such as acrylic, modacrylic, and polyester. Most forms of plastic; these made from chemicals derived from coal, air, water, petroleum, and limestone. All of these components are ecologically unsafe, according to governmental and independent scientific research bodies. 

Conversely, fur coats created from fur pelts from individual animals(living, organic creatures). These fur pelts are sourced humanely and legally and present no direct biological or ecological threat to Earth. 

Harvesting fur pelts are allowed under the sanction of governments and scientific bodies in the interest of overall environmental balance. 

These facts alone provide the basis for a deft argument against faux fur’s substitution over real fur. 

Then there is the practical/functional argument to be had. Let’s look briefly at this.


Practicality and Functionality

The faux fur’s design and style elements are taken directly from real fur design/style methodologies. This styling gives the outward appearance of a garment that, at first glance, appears fashionable and pricey all at once. However, a 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. Real fur coats, on the other hand, are precise instruments of creation.

The process is involved, requires true artisans/technicians. The Fur coat has a depth and feel and natural contour that can not be replicated by a faux fur coat.

The fur coat’s sustained wearability 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.
