Fur Or Against: Raccoon Dogs Pawned Off As Faux Fur?

Whatâ€™s labeled â€˜fauxâ€™ should be just that. The origin of this word is French and it’s translated to mean â€œimitation.â€� Used as an adjective, it most often precedes a noun as a descriptor for an object, event or character that is â€˜not the real deal.â€™ In the case of â€˜faux fur,â€™ a garment can range from every-day wear to haute couture. However, it should not come from a fur-covered animal and if it does, it should never be marketed as â€˜faux fur.â€™ Unfortunately in the case of â€˜raccoon dogsâ€™ that is not the case, and definitely a practice that should be banned.
