French fashion house Zadig & Voltaire won’t be using fur in any of its clothing or accessories in future collections.

The label, which has more than 300 outlets in over 30 countries globally, confirmed the news to vegan charity PETA. “[W]e have stopped using fur,” a spokesperson said.

It joins a growing list of designers and retailers that have recently banned fur, including Jean Paul Gaultier, Gucci, Versace, Armani, and Burberry.

Ditching fur

“We’re delighted to add Zadig & Voltaire to the ever-growing list of brands that have ditched fur,” PETA Director of International Programmes, Mimi Bekhechi, said in a statement sent to Plant Based News.

“French philosopher Voltaire – the fervent animal advocate after whom the company is named – wouldn’t have wanted to be associated with an industry that cages, bludgeons, electrocutes, and otherwise tortures animals and we’re sure he’d have been the first to thank the retailer for its compassionate new policy.”

The charity adds that rabbits, minks, foxes, chinchillas, raccoon dogs, and other animals ‘are confined to filthy cages and endure neglect, starvation, and dehydration before finally being slaughtered in horrific ways’ on fur farms – and that animals killed in the wild for their fur also suffer.
