Sheared Beaver Fur Coats - Pros and Cons

Thu, 27 Oct 2011 18:25:00 +0000

(image) Sheared beaver fur coats and jackets have become very popular the past years and it seems that this trend is here to stay for many years to come. This trend has been propelled by many prominent fashion designers like Zuki. They have taken the material to a whole new level. Beaver's rich underfur, allows for a huge versatility of shearing patterns and innovative looks. Before adding one in your wardrobe, one should consider the pros and cons.


Softness: Beaver's softness is epic. Their sensational feeling comes only second after chinchilla. Velvety, supple and lightweight.
Warmth: Shearing, does remove the guardhair. However, it is the rich underfur that provides insulation. They can be worn under any weather condition and they will never let you get cold.
Water repulsion: Beavers are animals that live underwater. Their fur is made to repel water. Therefore you will not have to worry about rain. Of course, you should never let them get soaked.
Bulk: Shearing reduces volume. This makes beaver fur coats more modern, elegant and stylish. It allows designers to create sophisticated patterns with sharp lines, which otherwise would have been obscured by the long guard hair.
Comfort: Their low weight makes them ideal for daily use
Price:Their average cost runs 50% lower in the market, compared to mink fur coats.
Underfur durability:You will never experience bald spots in a beaver fur garment.The hair are so strongly attached to the skin and they are so thick, that it would require serious negligence on your behalf to ruin a beaver fur coat
(image) Cons
Odors: Sheared beaver absorbs smoke and any other particle like a sponge. You will have to take it to a fur cleaning service, at least once a year.
Skin sensitivity: Although the underfur is very resilient, the skin is very sensitive. Consider buying a loose fitting garment, unless you want to experience rips.
Vanity: Whether we like it or not, we buy fur coats to show off. It is not the main reason of a purchase but it is one of the most important ones. Sheared beaver is not the ideal fur to impress and turn heads. It is a low profile type of garment.

In conclusion, if you are looking for a supple, comfortable, fashionable, every day use garment, that gives you a sensational feeling when wearing and touching it, then rel=nofollow []beaver suits you perfectly. It would be ideal as a second fur, unless showing off, cleaning and repair costs are not much of an issue to you.

Fendi Gets in the Flow for Fall with Fur

Thu, 30 Jun 2011 18:18:00 +0000

In 1925 Edoardo and Adele Fendi, opened a small leathergoods shop and fur workshop on via del Plebiscito. It’s the postwar period during which the new middle class is trying to find the way to recover. Due to the quality of the bags and the skillful workmanship of the furs they become a huge success. By 1964, Fendi is a well known name in Italy. Today Fendi is a world reknowned designer brand leading the way in high fashion furs, leather goods and ready-to-wear.

The last Fendi show was rife with carefully crafted furs. From beautiful scarves to full coats, every piece was meticulously sewn and styled. The separate pieces have a great over-all tone that ties the collection together, without becoming repetitive. It’s the perfect mix of long and short pieces, with a bit of that Fendi charm in every one.

Spring 2011 - Designer Fur Fashions

Wed, 30 Mar 2011 02:54:00 +0000

As designer ready-to-wear collections for the spring 2011 season hit the runways, it would seem that fur fashion is most definitely here to stay.The Autumn/Winter collections of 2010/2011 saw a fur revival like never before and many challenged its staying power outside of cold conditions but as the seasons change, the winning versatility of fur has shone through.  Designers have been lining up to showcase their renewed love of fur by expressing fresh and original ways to utilise it in their latest catwalk creations with innovative styles coming in the form of shorts and skirts from high profile designers such as Yves Saint Laurent, Georgio Armani and Oscar de la Renta.Coats took on lively new contours from the high sheen offerings of Rick Owens in his trademark jet black and the more lightweight variations appeared in short, tailored waist and thigh-length vests and jackets in serene neutrals from the ultra chic J. Mendel.Dennis Basso's sultry coat stylings ranged from cut out and see-through swing jackets with sumptuous snug collars that accentuate the inner silhouette to capped sleeve capes that captured the playful nature of the a-line 60's but oozed a contemporary feel.  Master fur manipulator Fendi displayed a variety of slinky boleros and accessories were still smoothing out the competition with colourful stoles from Dries Van Noten.Helen Yarmak's flirty designs used the attention grabbing bold primary hues of royal blue and canary yellow alongside strong shades of black and white cut in pure rock star mode while Oscar de la Renta brought a vintage feel back with a selection of opulent lines, trims, stoles and jackets.  The stark whites, soothing browns and slinky blacks in off the shoulder and wide collar designs wouldn\'t have looked out of place in the Hollywood glamour set of the 1950's.Prada went all out on their spring collections shown at the end of last year with high colour and bold stripe designs in fox fur stoles.  Vibrant shades of pink, blue, teal, green and an eye-catching stark orange (which is set to be one of spring's signature colours) sit surprisingly comfortable alongside thick black stripes.  These striking and instantly recognisable stoles are already a store favourite which has no doubt been helped along by a fun ad campaign, endorsements from famous fans such as renowned designer Marc Jacobs and pop sensation and fur advocate, Rihanna, who is rocking the look in her new music video 'S & M'. Celebrity wearers to celebrity designers, The Row is a label fronted by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.  Already making a stir with the level of fur used in their collections this dynamic twin duo have carved their own niche in the fashion world with their sophisticated and classy sharp tailored pieces that focussed on trims, fur hats and animal prints during New York's fashion week, with menswear and accessories promised for future lines.With so much fur still gracing the coming season's collections, it would seem that as spring approaches and the air heats up, our love of fur most definitely hasn't cooled.DESIGNER FUR COATSArticle Source: the AuthorIFTF is an independent international federation of national> fur trade associations and organisations.[...]

The Coastwide Nutria Control Program, run by the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, is trying to manage the nutria population by paying $5 for each nutria tail turned into the program. So far, they not only succeeded to decrease the damage from 100,000 acres in 2001 to a little more than 8,000 but also enabled coastal trappers, many of them survivors of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, to make a living.

Real Women Wear Real Fur

Wed, 30 Jun 2010 17:24:00 +0000

The Real Housewives of NYC are proud to wear real fur coats. After all they are the opitomy of the oppulent and wealthy Amercian lifestyle. Wearing fake fur, duffle down or scratchy wool blends isn't going to send the right message. That message being "I've arrived and look at me, I'm everything you wish you could be".

Anyone that's ever watched any of the Real Housewives' series would be lying if they said they didn't salivate at the thought of living in a NYC penthouse, having a home in the Hamptons, vacationing in the Riviera, eating at the finest restaurants and shopping till you drop on Park Avenue.

As long as people aspire to have wealth and live glamorously, fur coats will be in vogue!

What Makes Fur Coats Hot?

Thu, 20 May 2010 20:16:00 +0000

Have you seen fashion models wearing fur coats? Well, the use of fur coats in the fashion industry is not actually new. People for centuries have been wearing it and the public’s appreciation for this fashion trend is just becoming hotter than ever as more and more people, young and adults, have realized what fur coats are capable of giving.So for what reasons really are fur coats worn?People wear fur coats for a number of reasons. One of the most common reasons is that the quality of the fur provides warmth to its wearer. This is basically the reason that most of the coats made from fur are worn by people in winter. Note that this reason is considered as the number one reason, according to numerous polls.The coats made of fur are also preferred by many people, especially those who are living in winter lands, for that reason that most of the fur coats are made long lasting. I think this reason is based on the notion that fur is a fiber that is naturally durable. Being durable, it’s no question that fabrics made from this material will last for a number of years. Aside from its durability, the fur coat is also considered by many as the best garment to wear because of a sense of restylability. What I am trying to say here is that the styles of coats made from fur change by time, but they can be restyled or updated according to what is hot at the present. Restyling of fur coats can be done easily provided that you have knowledge about the latest trends in the fashion industry, or if you know what to do with it to fit the latest fashion craze.Another valid reason for wearing coats that are made from fur is that fur is natural fabric that is versatile enough to handle almost every scene and every occasion. According to many fashion experts, fur coats are not only best for special occasions. In fact, they can be worn for different events with a number of styles and designs available out there in the market for you to consider. Aside from that, coats made from fur may look good even when on your jeans or when you are wearing an evening gown. It will enhance your look, making your more terrific and desirable. Now, isn’t it great?Beyond the physical attributes of fur coats, it is nice to know that most people tend to wear this kind of coats for reason that has something to do with nature. Well, what I mean is that many people find such kind of garments as environmentally friendly. They actually base their claims on the notion that fur is a fine natural product that is biodegradable. It is even a renewable resource. So unlike its stronger counterpart, the polyester fake coats and those that are made from petroleum-based synthetics, the natural coats made of the natural fur can do great things to the environment. Scientifically speaking, the coats once disposed can be decomposed and absorbed into the ecosystem.There are other good reasons for wearing fur coats, but whatever your personal reason is, coats made of fur truly provides you not only a sense of unique fashion and style, but also comfort and convenience. It is soft, comfortable and even lightweight, making it truly worth wearing.Get more information about Gifts and Media at Articles - shopping, gifts, fur coat,[...]
