Marc Jacobs ‘Faux Fur’ Clothing Found to Contain Real Fur

A recent undercover investigation by the Humane Society has found that “faux fur” jackets made by designer Marc Jacobs actually contain real fur from Chinese raccoon dogs (an animal that is commonly skinned alive for its soft coat).

The coats that were tested were sold at a Century 21 department store in New York. According to the Humane Society, real fur is sometimes used or mixed in with faux fur because it can be cheaper.

Marc Jacobs hasn’t commented on the claims, but let’s hope they get their act together so paying customers don’t receive products they may not actually want to buy.
