SpiritHoods is an animal-centric brand recognized worldwide for our iconic collection of faux fur (aka fake fur) products and our tireless efforts to help put an end to the primitive and incompassionate use of real fur. Over the years, we’ve seen noticeable changes from some of the world’s most influential fashion houses and boutique brands alike — from simply introducing synthetic furs to their product line all the way to creating full blown fake fur collections. And while we are sooo grateful that others are now more conscious to avoid using real animal pelts, it doesn’t stop there for us. We have high standards, even higher ambitions, and a limitless amount of creativity and passion. We’re also very humbled and thankful for all of the love and support our fans have shown us and the animals for the past 10+ years.
We’re not just designers of faux fur products, we’re also friends and partners with several nonprofit organizations who we collaborate with regularly to help endangered animals around the world. From the very start, we’ve donated a percentage of profits to help protect endangered animals and their habitats — it’s just in our DNA. We’re proud to have been awarded cruelty-free recognitions from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) 2 years in a row; receiving their Libby Award for Best Animal-Friendly Clothing Company in 2011 and 2012. More recently, in 2019, we donated and collaborated with Animal Tracks Inc., a southern California animal sanctuary for wolves, monkeys, kangaroos, and other exotic animals, to create awareness and to champion animals rescued from the black market pet trade. In 2020, we released a special collab with Panthera (a leading wild cat nonprofit organization) with 100% of proceeds benefiting wild cats around the globe. We’re so proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish so far and we cannot wait to keep doing more.
We would never (and will never) use real animal pelt or real fur in our products. As an alternative, we currently use synthetic fibers like acrylic and polyester to create the irresistibly soft imitation fur our fans know and love. These types of fabrics, like many other textiles, are man-made fibers commonly found in many everyday items used today (from your favorite sports jersey to underwear and everything in between). The thing is, these materials are not easily biodegradable and can take a long time to decompose. Because of this, we inform everyone that our products are not designed or intended for fast fashion, as they were never meant to be disposed of or discarded quickly. SpiritHoods products are made to last a lifetime when cared for responsibly, kept properly, and shown the TLC it deserves to maintain its gorgeous fluffiness for years to come.
Beyond animal welfare, we understand we have a responsibility to not only produce cruelty-free products, but create ones that promote sustainability and global economic wellness. Our commitment to make products that are socially and ecologically responsible is more important now than ever be-faux.

We started by meticulously minimizing wastage in everything we produce. Then we took it a step further and started utilizing scrap fabrics for our “Throws for the Homeless” project, where we donate hundreds of throws in downtown Los Angeles during winter to help keep the homeless community warm during their difficult times. Today, we’ve begun digging our claws into the research and development of natural-fiber imitation furs to further minimize our economic footprint, and create a faux fur garment that is truly sustainable for both the animal kingdom and the planet. We’re currently experimenting with several manufacturing partners to explore new ways of creating hyper-realistic, fashionable, and high quality natural-fiber and mixed-fiber fake fur products. We can’t take all the credit though. We are very thankful for our suppliers and partners who have supported our efforts and poured millions of dollars into the R&D of natural-fiber fake furs. We anticipate these developments becoming reality in upcoming years and will keep you updated on the progress! We’ve got plenty of exciting things on the horizon, but bear with us — groundbreaking research & development does take time.
