Designers Working with Fur for a Righteous Cause

Fashion fur has not been big in the US for a several reasons, but with the nutria (a large rodent) quickly decimating the natural habitat of Louisiana's and Maryland's Eastern shore this might be a reason for fur to take off in the running.

This article in retailwire highlights how the quick reproducing species has put a strain in the marshlands of these states and how Cree McCree, founder of an organization called Righteous Fur, recently ran a show putting up products that were made from nutria on display. Will we see other designers using nutria for their products and how will consumers react to this once they see the big picture?
