VEGAN FUR

Fox

Faux fur looks and feels just like animal fur and enables designers to choose the exact plushness, thickness, and hue that they desire. Just a few of today’s many wonderful examples can be found in the collections of Stella McCartney, Shrimps, Ralph Lauren, and Calvin Klein, all of which refuse to use fur.
