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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
We are the only domestic producer of long-fur faux fur. We produce pile, boa, and sinker, and finish each fiber by meticulously weaving it with the utmost care and attention to quality.http://www.nihon-highpile.jp/index.html translated by DeepL
Now that this activity has been recognized, we have exhibited twice a year at Premiere Vision in Paris, France, the world’s leading exhibition for material manufacturers, and have been featured by the world’s most famous designers.
This is an eco-fur with long fur, a specialty of Japan High Pile.
Each fiber is carefully finished one by one, making it a very high quality product.
This is an eco-fur modeled after mink fur.
Mink fur has a slightly celebrity-like impression and has been difficult to adopt, but recently eco-fur has become commonplace and is popular among the younger generation.
This is a sheep boa style fabric.
It is also available in a variety of colors that are unique to synthetic fibers and have a good coloring.
Yellow, blue, and red sheep boa will be a good accent.
