Introduction of long-haired eco-fur – Nihon High-pile

Hi, I’m Daisuke, editor of ApparelX News Global.

This time, we would like to introduce “Nihon High-pile”, a company of eco-fur, which is now available at ApparelX.

Eco-fur is currently one of the most widely adopted trends, from luxury brands to fast fashion.

Please read on as we explain the merits of eco-fur and some products.

What is eco-fur?

First, let us explain what eco-fur is.

Eco-fur, as the name implies, is fur that is free of animal products.

Real fur is animal fur, but eco-fur refers to products made from synthetic fibers such as acrylic and polyester that are made to look like real fur.

Advantages of Eco-fur

(1) No animal sacrifice.

The greatest advantage of eco-fur is, of course, that no animals are sacrificed because no actual fur is used.
Recently, many luxury brands such as Prada, Gucci, and Maison Margiela have declared that they will no longer use real fur, and real fur is no longer a fashion statement.

(2) Development of vivid colors

Because synthetic fibers are used, they can be dyed in vivid colors that are not possible with natural fur, allowing for a wide variety of color development.

(3) Easy to care for

Because it is a synthetic fiber, it is easier to care for than natural materials. Some products can be washed at home and tend to be more durable than real fur.

(4)Low price

Real fur is expensive due to the use of natural materials and the processing steps involved. Compared to real fur, eco-fur is easier to produce and therefore relatively inexpensive.

As mentioned above, eco-fur is becoming commonplace in the fashion industry, and ApparelX now carries it as well!

The manufacturer of the products handled is Nihon High-pile, which specializes in eco-fur with long fur.

Products and other information will be presented in the next section.
