LONDON — As many fashion brands in the U.S. and Europe declare their aversion for fur, British fur manufacturers and trade organizations are fighting back, arguing for freedom of choice and asserting that real fur is far more sustainable — and environmentally friendly — than the faux alternatives.
On April 18, members of Britain’s pro- and anti-fur lobbies will be giving oral evidence as part of an ongoing inquiry by Parliament’s environment food and rural affairs committee into the fur trade in the U.K. The committee is looking at the current fur trade “and how the industry can be made more transparent for the consumers.” The committee added that, in the longer-term, “Brexit may provide an opportunity for the U.K. government to look at legislation around the import of fur.”
