Jonval Leathers and Furs has moved on from discussing the different types of leather, and started exploring the other side of Jonval Leathers and Furs
â€”furs! In these last few blogs, we have begun our discussion on the different types of animals the furs for the clothing and accessories come from.Â
Similar to leather, you would be surprised to find out just how many types of fur are used for clothing. In this blog series we will describe the fur and what makes it unique, special, or great for a particular type of clothing or accessory.Â
Jonval Leathers and Furs began its discussion of the different types of fur starting with beaver fur and then moved onto discussing chinchilla, one of the most coveted and expensive furs. Then, we talked about coyote fur which, while not so coveted, is still a very warm and pretty fur to wear.
In these most recent blogs, we have moved onto our next type of fur, fox fur. The fox can be found all over the world. It is very versatile when it comes to using it for fur in clothing and accessories. This is because it can come in a variety of natural colors.
We discussed the beauty of fox fur and why this particular pelt makes for great coats and other accessories. This included its diversity and range of colors as well as the density of its fur. This makes it a very warm fur coat for sure. Then we learned that there are actually many different types of foxes making for many different types of furs to be use in the making of clothing.Â
In this weekâ€™s blog, we will continue our discussion on all the different types of foxes. We will discuss where they are found, what their fur is like, including color and density and so on, and why they might make a great fur coat for you. In last weekâ€™s blog we discussed the blue fox, cross fox (with a super cool marking of a cross on its back and shoulders), and the grey fox.
Kitt Fox (or AKA Corsac)
Moving onto the next type of fox and its fur, we have the Kitt fox. In North America, the Kitt fox is also known as the grey fox which we discussed in our previous blog. These foxes make for beautiful coats and accessories as they are often two toned. Those tones are usually anywhere from light grey to grey and then shades of yellow.
When placed vertically down, these tones of color make for a striking and unique coat. No two coats would ever be alike because of the versatility of the furs and colors. Â
Then we have the Corsac fox. This particular fox comes from Serbia and other places in the former Soviet Union. This fox is, of course, quite similar to the Kitt fox. Some differences are that its has very little guard hair. And, what little guard hairs it has, are quite short. This guard hair is usually yellow and has white tips.
The fur in general is usually short and soft. This makes it not as coveted or popular as the Kitt fox or grey fox fur when it comes to coats and accessories.
We still here are a few more foxes to explore in the next blog. All are unique in some way and their furs are coveted. Stop by Jonval Leathers and Furs today for all your leather and fur needs.Â
