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 product for your home or to wear, 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. Custom Photo Props’s newborn photo props and FuRmanity’s throws are made using the highest-quality materials and are among the softest options on the market. In addition to being both beautiful and babies love them, they are easy to launder in your home or studio washing machine. Not only will this save you money, but you won’t have to worry about being without your favorite fur while it is being cared for by a dry cleaning service.
You’ll spend less money
Authentic fur products, such as flokati newborn props, 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 genuine animal fur props. At Custom Photo Props 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 basket stuffers or larger flooring pieces. By saving money on vegan fur photography props, you will be able to put the money you saved into investing in your photography business.
Vegan fur is more durable
As we mentioned earlier, artificial fur for photography props is extremely durable. They can be used on a daily basis, which is especially important for newborn baby photographers, without showing signs of wear and washing. Furthermore, as those babies and pet clients inevitably have accidents, you won’t have to worry because you can simply put your faux flokati newborn fur in your washing machine.
Animal furs, in contrast, require nearly constant upkeep. From the aforementioned professional cleaning requirements and the shedding, authentic fur is not nearly as durable as quality vegan fur. When you invest in a newborn baby photo prop of any kind, trusting that it will withstand the test of time, and hundreds of clients, is incredibly important. Our faux flokati furs are sure to last 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 wool rug, 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. Each quarter we ask our customers to recommend their favorite animal shelter and we make monetary donations to them. Our dedication to putting our beliefs into practice sets us apart.
