Harvey Nichols announces to go fur-free by 2023

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2023-01-30 17:58:19 – United Kingdom

British department store Harvey Nichols, has announced that it would stop selling fur by the end of 2023, following a probe into fur farms by the animal welfare organization Humane Society International.

The retail establishment had previously adopted a fur-free policy, but in 2013 it abandoned it and resumed selling fur goods. The companies Yves Solomon, CP Company, Canada Goose, and Moncler were among those offering fur products at Harvey Nichols as of December 2022.

The latter two businesses have also already committed to eliminating fur from their designs; Canada Goose announced that it would stop producing fur at the end of 2022, while Moncler announced that its final collection using fur will be available in the fall/winter of 2023.

A spokesperson for Harvey Nichols, said that as part of their ongoing evaluation of these practices and further sustainability measures, Harvey Nichols confirms that it will phase out the sale of fur or fur-trimmed products both online and in stores, to be totally fur-free by the end of 2023.

Claire Bass, Senior Director of Campaigns and Public Affairs at Humane Society International, said that Harvey Nichols turning fur free is an iconic milestone in their campaign for a Fur Free Britain. This renowned British department store has reached the unavoidable conclusion that "ethical fur" is a myth and that fur production contradicts any realistic idea of sustainability. The few stores that still sell fur today appear to be increasingly alone as a result of Harvey Nichols' humane approach.
