Monkey fur rug - NO!  I’m sure there are better alternatives ….

Elsa Schiaparelli brought Monkey Fur into the spotlight during the 1930′s. 
It was also used by interior designers. This rug was made from the pelt of the 
Abyssinian, or Central African Colobus Monkey, the fur is very long, sleek, 
shiny. It is said to look and feel eerily like human hair. Monkey fur was very 
popular from the mid nineteenth century through the 1940’s during which time 
the Colobus Monkey population dropped to alarmingly low numbers. It was a 
favorite with designers who crafted Art Deco styled streamlined furs, 
often worn by Hollywood Movie Stars in the 1920′s and 1930′s.
