They are BEARSKINS Steven.
I understand that they are actually made from bear fur, but because of pressure, and expense, they are now being replaced with new ones made from artificial fur.

I am fairly sure that no successful artificial alternative has yet been found.

With the right context almost anything can sound appropriate.

End of topic.
