How A Faux Fur Throw Is Being Made

By Brenda Hayes

Faux is a French word originally and it means fake, false, or a simulation. Fake products are being made by some manufacturers to just purely imitate or simulate items. They are really attempting to make these products to look like more closely as the original item. Their reason for this is for them to avoid some controversies about the over use of animal furs.

Faux materials can be produced in many different ways. This includes finishes that are made with marble dust. Some types of stones are being finished with spatter dash, sponging, or feather streaking techniques. Fake furs became popular because of its promotion for the animal welfare, thus, faux fur throw is being produced as an animal friendly and an alternative to the original clothing.

These are most commonly used for clothing, but aside from that, its other uses are for fashion accessories, pillows and bedding, and also for stuffed animals. Real furs are thicker compared to fake furs. And because of the thickness, special sewing machines are produced for this type, but this can also be made by hand.

These furs in todays generation become increasingly popular when it comes to fashion designing. It became a mainstream for winter fashion, and are usually used for hats and jackets. Designers are looking forward to creating more and more designs of faux fur in their future collections. Most designers would rather use fake rather than the real ones since they can manufacture and control the aspects of production such as its volume and color.

There are many types of materials for producing fake furs. The usual materials that are utilized are polymeric fibers. These are processed and are dyed to get the desired result of its color and texture. Acrylic and modacrylic polymers are mostly being utilized types of polymers.

Modacrylic polymer and acrylic polymer have their characteristics that are very useful and these include weight lightness and it is also springy. Other useful characteristics are its sunlight, smoke, and heat resistance. It also has resistance to mildews, thus, lessening the attacks of insects. It also contains low absorbency making it dry quickly. Wool, silk, and mohair fabrics can be used to improve the appearance of the garment.

I monitoring the production, raw materials are to be inspected first. Other features like resiliency, absorbency, pH, density, and appearance are monitored as well. While the fabrication is on going, every single time, manufacturers are doing a test for samples to ensure quality and to surely meet the requirements.

The technology has been improving many aspects of product quality. And according to some researchers, more and more fibers, finishes, and clothing will be developed. Such materials are improving in its quality such as the look and has lower cost. Methods for a quicker and more efficient production is also being studied.

Because of the increase in high quality production, what is faux or what is natural is hard to determine. So this would probably make the demand become higher. And for the manufacturers, they must continue on striving to create higher quality products in lower cost.
