Cavegirl How long have people worn it?
From early times fur has been very valuable.

The British trade in furs began at least 2,000 years ago.

When the Romans arrived in Britain they traded furs for British wool and metals.

London has been the centre of the world fur trade for over 700 years.

By the year 2000, more than 240 fashion designers had included real fur in their collections.
