Decorate your home with faux fur afghans
In life, there are very few things you should fake: one of them should be the fur afghan throw rug you place in your lounge as a decorative piece. When it comes to your home décor, keep it simple and classy with faux fur pieces. As a synthetic fabric that looks strikingly similar to that of natural fur, it is the animal cruelty-free way to complement your living quarters.
Affordable, visually appealing, and available in a range of colours, patterns, and shapes, there are a number of ways that you can decorate your home with faux fur afghan throws. For one, you can drape a large throw over your bare hardwood floor, or place a petite one at the front entrance as a friendly invitation to guests. No matter where you decide to put your faux fur afghan rug, it will add a splash of personality to your home.
How to tell if a fur rug is fake
Since People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) launched its ‘no fur’ campaign in 1988, the production of fur items has dropped significantly. As a popular alternative, faux fur is the perfect choice for animal lovers but also for those looking for a cheaper option. You can tell if a fur rug is fake because of its feeling to the touch. Faux fur tends to be made of fine acrylic fibres, and will feel similar to cotton blends to the touch.
When you’re looking for faux fur throws or decorative pieces for your home, there’s only one place to go: eBay. In addition to afghan rugs, you’ll find a large range of decorative candles, photo frames, cushions and more to suit any room as well as your budget.
