Why people have supported fur
The wearing of fur clothing is
making a comeback, despite valiant attempts from pushy animal rights activist
groups, and a faltering economy. Indeed, fashion models in well known magazines
such as Vogue, Elle, Glamour, and more are being seen wearing fur clothing.
And wearing fur clothing doesn't stop at fur coats. These models are
pairing fur gloves with matching fur
hats, and fur belts that match their
fur trimmed boots.
Wearing fur clothing has traditionally been seen as a symbol of status,
luxury, and beauty, although warm and practicality are two main reasons for
wearing fur clothing other than aesthetics.
When animal rights activist groups such as PETA try to argue against wearing
fur clothing, furriers and fur dealers generally point out the strict regulations
imposed upon fur traders and trappers ensuring that no animal that is part
of an endangered species is killed for its fur in the United States. Therefore,
when you are wearing fur clothing that came from an animal that was raised
in the U.S, and that you bought in the U.S., you can be assured that you
are not wearing fur clothing made from an animal in an endangered species.
