Fashionpedia: Wool, Hair and Feather

Designers use many types of fabrics and materials in their designs but do you know where they really come from? Here are some animals from which handbags, coats, jackets, and shoes are made.

sheep wool is not only used for making clothes but also for making accessories like handbags in addition to shoes. Horse hair is also used nowadays in the making of handbags. Other hair bags like zebra and giraffe are often prints and not real hair.

Duck feather on the other hand is famous in the making of pillows but down feather is famous in the making of jackets. Down feather is a very soft feather taken from the inside chest of a duck.
