Faux Fur Friday, a special celebration for lovers of fuzzy clothes and teddy bears, is celebrated on the first Friday in December in the U.S.
Also known as fake fur, the textile made its debut in 1929. Initially made from alpaca wool, faux fur increased in quality as synthetic fibers became available. The fibers not only allowed for more variety, but they lasted longer. Whether you call it fake, imitation or simulated, faux fur has found a place in fashion. For more information, click here.
