What’s labeled ‘faux’ should be just that. The origin of this word is French and it’s translated to mean “imitation.â€� Used as an adjective, it most often precedes a noun as a descriptor for an object, event or character that is ‘not the real deal.’ In the case of ‘faux fur,’ 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 ‘faux fur.’ Unfortunately in the case of ‘raccoon dogs’ that is not the case, and definitely a practice that should be banned.
