Here’s a fashion statement that is sure to get you some comments: Handbags made from cat fur! In this Animal Planet video, you’ll meet Danelle, a groomer from South Carolina who uses shorn cat fur – preferably Angora – to weave functioning, fashionable handbags. The fur is spun into a fine, silky thread, and then crafted into a bag. For cat owners who want a lasting tribute of their beloved pet, this is the better than anything by Gucci.
