Spanish luxury fashion company Puig, which owns brands like Carolina Herrera, Dries Van Noten, Paco Rabanne, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Nina Ricci, has committed to cease selling items manufactured from the skins of exotic animals like snakes and crocodiles.
The family-owned Spanish company which aims to leave a better planet for the future generation informed vegan charity PETA that steps have already been made to no longer utilize exotic skins. However, until supplies last, the CH Carolina Herrera sub-brand will sell crocodile and python accessories.
Exotic skins are produced in appalling conditions, according to the animal protection group, and several exposés of the business corroborate the widespread brutality.
Furthermore, several scientists worry that the trade-in of exotic skins risks spreading illnesses like COVID-19, making the sector a serious public health concern.
PETA president, Ingrid Newkirk said that given Gaultier's unconventionality and Herrera's elegance, they are signaling that exotic animal skins have no place in fashion today, regardless of your taste in fashion.
This smart decision is a significant win for PETA, and an even greater win for the animals who will no longer be subjected to cruelty.
Puig's brands join a growing list of renowned designers and stores that have prohibited the sale of exotic skins, including Calvin Klein, Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld, Selfridges, and others.
