Finished The Fox Fur Mittens

Published by at 10:08 pm under Animal Materials

My first complicated tailoring project is now done. Fox fur mittens, lined with roe deer buckskin, sewn with reindeer sinew and reindeer antler needle. I might add another rim of fur around the hole, but I need some more nice fox fur first.

Here is a photo of it from the back of the hand:

And here of the owner wearing them, though not with matching clothes:

    To be honest, why kill an endangered animal for its fur?
    I think its sick, wrong and totally inhumane!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    And then getting A LITTLE GIRL to wear them. If she grew up to know what the story is behind them then i dont know what she would do.

    Sir, your hands are covered in blood & guiltyness.

    Endangered???? Read my other reply to you regarding that.

    Start living in the real world, your diet, clothing and overall consumption kills more wild and endangered animals than you would believe. At least this doesn’t destroy their habitat.

    Torjus is right.

    The hunter-gatherer lifestyle is the only sustainable lifestyle – both for humans and nature (including the furry animals).

    If Anonymouse eats any meat or diary products at all, if (s)he lives in an ordinary house with newly-bought furniture, (s)he has been responsible for a lot more animal deaths, and for worse reasons, than Torjus ever will.

    Not to mention the horrible treatment of animals in the bio-industry, and the pollution associated with a modern lifestyle. Let alone the greenhouse effect, etc.

    people like Anonymouse are part of the problem, and should do their homework before getting all emotional..

    I should have said: “hunter-gatherer + permeaculture” lifestyle.
