A Florida woman is hoping to kick start a new fashion craze - and she is using dog hair to do it.

The woman uses groomed dog hair to make high end purses.

It takes two pounds of fur - and 50 hours a week - to make just one purse.

The woman used to be a veterinarian in Brazil and she also used to take fashion design classes - she says, the purses combine both of her passions.

She sells the purses for $1,000, but hopes to bring that cost down once she goes into mass production.
