Faux Fur Friday also known as Fake fur Friday is observed on the first Friday in December.

Wearing fake fur is considered a more ethical, environmentally friendly, and versatile choice than wearing real fur. While some argue that real fur is a natural and sustainable material, the ethical concerns and environmental impact associated with its production make fake fur a more desirable option for many consumers.

Fur was an important source of clothing in ancient times, particularly in colder climates where it provided warmth and protection from the elements. Many ancient societies, such as the Inuit in North America, relied on fur clothing as a crucial part of their survival strategy in harsh environments.

Fur was also used in ancient times as a symbol of status and luxury, particularly among the wealthy and elite. Royals and nobles would wear garments made from rare or exotic furs, such as ermine or sable, to display their wealth and power.

Today, fur is still used for clothing and other purposes, although it has become a controversial material due to concerns about animal welfare and ethical sourcing.

There are several reasons why wearing fake fur is considered better than wearing real fur:

  • Animal welfare: The production of real fur often involves inhumane treatment of animals, such as confinement, starvation, and cruel killing methods. Wearing fake fur avoids supporting this unethical industry.

  • Environmental impact: The production of real fur is a resource-intensive and environmentally damaging process that involves large amounts of water, energy, and chemicals. In contrast, fake fur is made from synthetic materials that have a lower impact on the environment.

  • Health concerns: Real fur can be a source of allergens and can also carry disease and parasites. Wearing fake fur eliminates these health risks.

  • Fashion flexibility: Fake fur can be made in a wider range of colors and styles, providing greater flexibility for fashion choices.

  • Affordability: Fake fur is often less expensive than real fur, making it a more accessible option for people who want the look and feel of fur without the high cost.
