Hey girl! This is MUUF.

Go faux on the outside. Stay real on the inside. ♥️
Who's behind MUUF?
Hi, I'm Katy.
I started MUUF in 2017 after I had an epiphany of recreating my great-grandma's 100-year-old muff (not the one you have in mind, you dirty ;). A muff is a hand warmer slash little pouch that ladies used to wear in winter a very long time ago.
I found one in my gran’s wardrobe once and I thought: a hand warmer and a bag, how awesome is that? Only, I could use a little less eccentric design (I seriously didn’t know that animal prints were a thing back in the 1920’s, did you?).
So I started working on a redesign. I experimented with different shapes and sizes, types of padding and lining, I widened the inner pocket, attached a faux leather strap to it.
I made the first prototype from a plushy faux fur. It didn’t look like anything serious at the beginning, but me and faux fur were slowly starting to fall in love. :)
And that’s when the idea of MUUF was born. By the way, the name of the brand comes from a typo I made in the word “muff”.
Why faux fur?
Since the launch of the brand, many people have asked me why I chose faux fur to be my signature material.
To tell you the truth, it is a horrible fabric to work with since I’m constantly covered in hairs, breathing them in, sweeping floors all the time, etc.
But more than anything, faux fur is a lot of fun. It’s a hugely versatile material that can look both elegantly sophisticated and playfully quirky.
A quality faux fur is an excellent alternative to real fur without the cost of animal lives and it makes me happy that still more and more high-end brands are supporting the cause and saying NO to real fur.
I pick faux furs for MUUF products very carefully. I only go for the softest and the thickest furs I can find so you can enjoy the fluffiness to the fullest.
Here’s to making the world a softer place. ♥️
Love, Katy xx
