Flokati or Vegan Flokati Furs? Which product is best for newborn photography?

What are the differences between our exclusive line of Vegan fur photography props and genuine fur such as flokati wool, lambskin, sheepskin?
Vegan Fur
  • Machine washable – hand or gentle cycle/cold water. Machine dry on NO heat setting.
  • Very soft for that delicate baby skin
  • Pliable fabric which makes it easy to form in baskets.
  • Easy to spot clean if needed
  • Virtually no shedding (only at unfinished edges and is minimal until washed)
  • Affordable – Average one yard costs $60.00 from Custom Photo Props LLC
Genuine Furs
  • Dry clean only as per manufacturer
  • An animal died for its fur if it’s a skin product: lambskin, sheepskin
  • Real sheep wool
  • Can cause an allergic reaction and skin irritation
  • Thick backing which makes it hard for posing in baskets
  • Matted ends give very textured appearance
  • Abundance of wool shedding throughout the rug and not concentrated to ends
  • Coarse texture if Flokati wool (not recommended to lay a baby directly on the wool as it is itchy)
  • Costly – Average one yard piece costs $90.00 – $200.00

We are advocates for animal safety and are strong believers in using Vegan fur fabrics instead of harming animals. Those animals live in brutal conditions and are faced a very excruciating death due to the fact that there is a need for their hide. No photo is worth hurting an innocent animal! Say NO to genuine Tibetan Lamb, Lambskin, Flokati, Sheepskin, and any other “genuine” fur. 

Take the pledge to stop harming these beautiful creatures! PETA

Anna Mann: “I just received my furs from your black Friday sale and I am EXTREMELY satisfied! The quality and look of the fur is absolutely perfect. I also ordered faux fur from another site on black Friday and was disappointed with the way their fur looked and felt once it arrived. Yours was above and beyond what I expected. I will for sure be a returning customer!”

Jessica Freemont: “I had used flokati for over a year and my friend who is also a newborn photographer kept trying to convince me to switch to your furs. In an honest attempt to get her to stop I purchased one of your furs. She was so right!! I was so impressed with your furs that I sold my used flokati and purchased new furs from you! Your product is so soft, much easier to wash and it makes the parents really happy to know I am not putting their newborn on a dead sheep!”

April Lynn: “My favorite furs EVER. They really are baby whisperers!”

Feedback from a customer : “I have a Flokati that I got from Ikea and it’s scratchy, impossible to wash or keep clean and CONSTANTLY shedding. When I first got your furs I was a little nervous about washing them and was always trying to do set ups that were either in buckets or with diaper covers. But then there was an accident on the blue one (my fav) and I was so sad. I figured I’d wash it and if it was wrecked, I would just replace it. It came out of the wash and I thought, damn, it’s matted. I let it air dry. After it was dry, I threw it into the dryer on low heat for about 10 minutes and voila, good as new. I was so happy. 🙂

“I’m constantly using them for anything now. I’ve had them peed and pooped on several times, and every time they wash they still come out looking new. I’m sure I’ll eventually wear them out, but before then, I will know for sure I got my money’s worth out of them!! 🙂 Cheaper than Flokati, look and feel better and easier to clean. Win win win!! :)” Shannon Bower Photography of Novia Scotia, Canada

“GREAT Faux Fur Prop! I’ve been looking for something similar to a Flokati Rug and honestly, I felt like this was better than the Flokati Rug I have because it’s more flexible, being fabric AND so much softer!!! I will definitely purchase from this seller again, hopefully more colors of this Fur, Love!”

One thought on “Flokati or Vegan Flokati Furs? Which product is best for newborn photography?

  1. I’m so happy that you mentioned animal cruelty in the fur industry. I think photographers have turned a blind eye to the realities of the fur industry and it’s really sad. Just because someone sells these props and well-known photographers are using them, doesn’t suddenly make it right. Thank you for standing up for animals!
