HARPERS BAZAAR – Mulberry bans exotic skins from future collections

The brand already operated a fur-free policy
Mulberry has banned all exotic skins from future collections, following years of pressure from animal rights group PETA.
The luxury label, which already has a fur-free policy, has vowed to never again use the skins of alligators, crocodiles, ostriches, lizards, or snakes in its designs.
“[W]e have spent a lot of time determining and then continually reviewing our sustainability metrics and targets,” says Mulberry Group sustainability manager Rosie Wollacott. “At an early stage of this process, we decided not to use exotics in our collections, and this remains our position.”
Earlier this year, Coca launched he sustainable leather Portobello tote, and the M Collection, bags and outerwear made using a blend of Econyl-branded regenerated nylon and sustainable cotton.
