Editor’s note: In my own wardrobe I have a strict faux-fur policy. Craft and Culture, Ltd. will carry recycled and re-purposed fur but we do not support the profit and perpetuation of the fur trade. I chose to post these images for their remarkable beauty and aesthetic. I do think they would be even more beautiful if animals had not been harmed to make those tops.
