While I consider it completely outdated and also unethical to buy products using animal fur, the fact is that there are many fur coats in my closet, all left to me by my mother or aunt. They are very beautiful and in perfect conditions. And in Sweden, where I live, a warm coat is quite an asset. But is there any way in our modern life that we can use these pieces without the supporters of animal cruelty or just the heartless supporters? If yes, how should they be worn? – Journa, Stockholm
The development of social contract and shared morality may have unexpected consequences on fashion, with apparel once considered necessary – such as shredded clothing to stop women’s movements or to move away from social status – such as in the dustbin of history.
Fur, especially new fur, is now based on this prefix in many countries.
There is an ideology that argues for the continued use of vintage fur, such as the coats you inherited from your mother and aunt. The reason, in part, is that fur is often passed from generation to generation, containing all the stories of the family. Furthermore, to destroy a mole already in vogue is devaluing its history and is worse than being treated with respect for the environment. There is also an increased awareness of problems with our dispositional culture.
The problem is that the only person who actually knows fur is vintage is the person wearing it – especially as fakes have gotten better and real fur has become ever more creatively odd. Even if you know that you are acting responsibly, you still risk the mob’s obtrobium and anger.
Some time ago, when I first went to London, I had a fake fur coat that looked honestly like no animal had ever seen in nature. I was wearing it one day when I walked out of Parliament when an anti-poaching protest was going on, and I came very close to being drenched in paint by a patron who was convinced that I wore an animal and Only shouted that it was man-made fiber.
Since then, I’ve inherited a fur coat, a mink that my grandmother, who dreamed about when she left school at the age of 15, flourished and survived for decades and that’s part of her American dream Has been made. Although I can’t part with it, I can’t bring myself to wear it.
I too have considered stitching a huge “vintage” patch on the back of the coat. There may have been a business opportunity for an entrepreneurial soul in creating the certification process, including the logo for the used furs, but this has not happened yet.
All that has happened, however, is the rise of a new kind of business – not just restling (which has been around for a while), but completely remodeling the old furs. This means transforming coats into blankets, pillows, hats, scarves, and even zip-out linings to preserve their meaning without promoting their creation. Many have grown on small storefronts Etsy To address this issue, as well as companies with names such as Muffle up And Further.
Supposedly, this solution is better than Wordplay.
