Chanel to Stop Use of Exotic Skins

The ban is said to include crocodile, lizard, snake and stingray skins as well as fur.

On the eve of its Metiers d’Art show in New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, Chanel announced that it will no longer use exotic skins in its future creations. In an interview with "WWD", Bruno Pavlovsky, president of Chanel fashion and president of Chanel SAS, said that exotic skins – which include crocodile, lizard, snake, stingray and fur – will be replaced by other materials with less environmental impact.

The label follows in the footsteps of other international labels such as Versace, Giorgio Armani, Calvin Klein and Gucci who also abolished the use of fur in their collections.
