Farfetch to ban fur

Luxury etailer Farfetch is axing products made of fur or of skins from endangered species. 

Farfetch is the latest luxury fashion player to ban fur, and will stop listing the products on its website by 31 December 2019.

It also requires all exotic skin products listed to have  Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) certification, and will not allow the listing of exotic skin unless it is permitted by CITES and the International Union for Conservation of Nature. 

Animal activist organisation PETA became one of Farfetch’s first shareholders in September 2018, in a bird to “urge it to end the sale of fur garments on its website”.  

Several other brands have implemented fur-free policies, among them Chanel, Coach, Versace and Burberry.

  • Only from endangered species? Or all fur? Needs to be all.
