Women’s Faux Fur Purses and Handbags
Faux fur purses and handbags may never go out of style, but if they do, it won’t be for long. This fabric is known as faux, fake, or fun fur and is an imitation of real fur. Faux fur fabric is made from acrylic and modacrylic, 100 percent polyester, acrylic blend or 100 percent acrylic. There may be other blends also. Above is a picture of a pink leather bucket bag with a faux fur trim.
This light grey faux fur and leather handbag above was taken in Spain by a friend of mine who lives there, Taetske. Designs include faux fur swirl designs, crinkle fabric, faux grizzly, mink, husky, rabbit, fox, and animal prints to name a few. They come in different shades ranging from white to grey, brown, black, and dyed colored versions. All of which are unique and beautiful. Below is a large black faux fur handbag with a zipper closure and long chain straps.
Different Styles To Choose From
Faux fur purses and handbags can be used all year round and the choices are endless. Purses, handbags, crossbody, clutches, backpacks, waist pouches, duffel bags, carry ons, luggage, all of these look great made of this fabric. They can be plain or embellished with decorations, buckles, long or short straps, or whatever your personal taste is. You can have a bag trimmed with Faux fur or have the whole bag made of the fur. The blue one below is a mix of both blue faux fur and dyed blue leather. It has a leather and chain strap that hangs from your shoulder.
Care For Your Faux Fur
This type of fur can shed just as authentic fur, and you will want to keep it separate from your other garments when it comes time to clean them. Clean your bag individually by sprinkling cornmeal onto it, then working it into the fur with a brush to absorb the oil and dirt. Let it dry overnight then the following day, brush it again. Shake it to remove any excess cornmeal. It can be washed in your washing machine also if it’s all fur and not just the trim, but make sure it is set to the delicate cycle. Use cold water and mild detergent just like you would wash it by hand. The picture below is a faux fur purse with multi colored patches and a chain strap from Spain that Taetske took for me as well.
Do not throw your bag in your dryer after washing it, but roll the wet bag in a thick towel to absorb the left over moisture. Reshape it and let it air dry. Once it’s completely dry, gently brush it to smooth out the fur and then fluff it. You only need to wash your bag if it gets dirty and that shouldn’t be very often. They are a beautiful style to own and well worth the care. The pictures speak for themselves on how awesome this bag truly is. The small backpack style handbag below, I found in a shoe store. It is leather with black faux fur on the front and has the zipper pocket at the front also.
