Faux Fur Coats and Jackets for Women

Updated on January 16, 2015

Fur Coats and Fur Jackets

Faux fur jackets allow for great padding and support which is generally much harder to apply for real fur jackets. This is especially important for women and fashion conscious females. For women who are thinking of buying faux fur coats, there are a few things to keep in mind such as the material, the price and the weather you will be wearing your faux fur jackets in.

To greatly reduce the number of animals being hunted for its fur, faux fur has been increasingly popular in the fashion industry. Therefore, material is a very important factor in your decisions on purchasing fake fur coats and fake fur jackets. Most are made of acrylic fibres which provides a very similar touch and feel to that of real fur at a fraction of the price.

Things to Look Out For

There are both pros and cons to everything, including the purchase of fake fur. It is much easier to store faux fur. This is because fake fur is not made from organic material and makes it much harder to rot. In addition, you will be contributing towards helping the world and lowering the number of illegal poachers. Less animals will be killed for their fur every year and thus eases the tension for endangered species such a tigers.

However, faux fur could be allergic to people with sensitive skin. For lower quality fake fur, it is very easy to feel the plastic feeling which makes it very hard and rough. Also, if you were to throw it away, because of what it's made of, it takes a long time to decompose and thus clogging up the landfills. Another option is to choose cashmere coats.
