French fashion house Chanel has finally announced that they will no longer be making use of real animal furs and skins in their clothing and accessories.

As reported by CNN Style, the company made the decision based on their ethical standards accompanied by plenty of pressure applied on them by animal rights groups.

Along with furs, the internationally renowned brand will also be getting rid of the use of leather skins such as crocodile, snake, and lizard. A spokeswoman for the fashion house explained the reasoning behind this is that it is no longer possible to source these products in a way that meets Chanel’s ethical standards.

“At Chanel, we are continually reviewing our supply chains to ensure they meet our expectations of integrity and traceability. In this context, it is our experience that it is becoming increasingly difficult to source exotic skins which match our ethical standards.”
