Faux suede & fur coat

The 1960s were the beginnings of the anti fur movement, but price would have determined the choice of faux fur for this coat. The first fake furs started to appear in the early 20th century as an alternative to high priced real fur garments. Nalla Fashions was an Auckland company that specialised in fake fur jackets.
