Fake fur, also called fun fur or faux fur, is any material made in synthetic fibers designed to resemble fur, normally as part of a piece of clothing. It was first introduced in 1929and has been commercially available since the 1950s, but its increasing popularity has been credited to its promotion by animal rights and animal welfare organizations which claim that it is an animal-friendly alternative to traditional fur clothing.

- Fake fur is ethical and cruelty-free.
- Fake fur is a fabric, therefore it is relatively easy to sew with.
- Fake fur does not require or encourage the breeding of animals in factory farms like real fur.
- Fake fur does not require cold storage to prevent deterioration and is impervious to moths.
- Fake fur is not a natural material.
- Fake fur is made from several materials including blends of acrylic and modacrylic polymers derived from coal, air, water, petroleum and limestone. These materials can take a long time to break down, possibly anywhere from 500 to 1,000 years.
- Fake furs are not able to keep snow from melting and re-freezing on the fiber filaments; this is very important, especially in hiking, mountain climbing, skiing and other outdoor activities which are done in extreme conditions.
