What are the Benefits of Faux Fur v. Animal Fur

Fur, in any form, is beautiful. There are, however, a variety of reasons to choose faux, or vegan, fur over animal fur. If you’ve been thinking about investing in a fur decor for your home, it’s imperative to do the appropriate research prior to selecting a product. As you read this guide, you will discover a carefully selected array of benefits you can expect to experience if you opt to purchase high-quality vegan fur for your home instead of animal fur of any kind. 

Cleaning and care are easier. 

Authentic animal fur products, including throws and coats, typically have complex care instructions if you want to keep them looking great for years to come. Often, for instance, people have to store their furs in special climate-controlled facilities during the spring and summer months so they do not become damaged due to heat and humidity. Not only is this an expensive, and unnecessary, annual expense, but it can be quite a hassle. Furthermore, animal fur generally cannot be machine washed at home. If real fur throws, coats, or other items require laundering, they have to be taken to dry cleaning establishments that know how to handle fur. Again, this can be pricey. 

Vegan fur, on the other hand, is incredibly easy to care for. FuRmanity’s home decor fur throws, pillows and rugs are made using the highest-quality materials and are among the softest options on the market. In addition to being both beautiful and comfortable, they are easy to launder in your home washing machine. Not only will this save you money, but you won’t have to worry about being without your favorite throw while it is being cared for by a dry cleaning service. Families with children are especially fond of our products because they have an upscale look and feel, but function perfectly in homes where durability is a priority. 

You’ll spend less money. 

Authentic fur products are usually not budget friendly. Unless you are willing to spend a significant amount of money, you’re unlikely to be able to invest in animal fur throws or other goods. Even the most high-quality vegan fur styles, though, are attainable for most households who are interested in owning these sorts of items. At FuRmanity, for instance, we carefully select all of our material suppliers to make sure our product lines are of the very best quality and our items are still priced significantly below comparably-sized animal fur home decor pieces. By saving money on throws for your home, you will be able to afford other decorative wares that might not have otherwise fit into your budget. 

Vegan fur is more durable. 

As we mentioned earlier, vegan fur throws are extremely durable. They can be used on a daily basis, which is especially important for families who live in colder climates (like ours in upstate New York!) without showing signs of wear and tear. Furthermore, if you have children and pets in your household, you won’t have to worry about spills and other messes because you can simply put your vegan fur throw in your washing machine and have it back in no time without spending extra money on professional cleaning services. 

Animal fur throws, in contrast, require nearly constant upkeep. From the aforementioned professional cleaning requirements to the fact that it can fade in as little as a year, particularly if it’s been dyed to enhance its color, authentic fur is not nearly as durable as quality vegan fur. When you invest in a product of any kind, trusting that it will withstand the test of time is incredibly important. Our vegan fur throws are sure to last your family or your photography business for years to come, even with heavy use.

Animal cruelty is not an issue. 

If you are concerned about animal cruelty issues within the authentic fur industry, you may have found yourself hesitant to purchase a genuine animal product, even if money and ease-of-care are not priorities for you. Vegan fur, which is typically made from cotton, polyester, or acrylic fibers, completely eliminates the potential for the maltreatment of animals, while offering the other benefits outlined in this guide. This makes it the perfect choice for consumers in a wide variety of demographics. 

At FuRmanity and Custom Photo Props we are especially committed to making sure animals are well cared for. As a matter of fact, our one-to-one business model means that every time we sell a vegan fur throw, we donate one to a shelter animal in need. Our dedication to putting our beliefs into practice sets us apart. If you are planning to purchase a throw from any of our product lines, including our specialty kids’ Kuddle blankets or our adult collection, we look forward to serving you soon!
