JEFFREY CAMPBELL “HAWK” LITA BOOTS MADE WITH REAL FUR.
Popular fashion footwear designer Jeffrey Campbell has disgraced both the fashion and animal loving communities with a new pair of LITA booties made with REAL fur.
Yo Jeffrey Campbell Shoes! Coming out with a vegan shoe line does not mean you’ve earned a “get out of jail free” card for designing with the pelts of once living and breathing creatures.
The scandal continues…
Urban Outfitters (which claims to be #furfree, despite their history of mislabeling snafus) conveniently left out the part about real fur in it’s product description. KARMALOOP is selling the booties as well. Unlike Urban Outfitters, Karmaloop mentions several times that these boots are made with real fur. Come on guys! There’s nothing modern about Viking booties.
We’re asking that both Urban Outfitters and Karmaloop apologize and pull these items from their inventory. We’re *hoping* this is all a big misunderstanding, but if we do not hear back we will move forward with a petition, online campaign, and city wide demonstrations.
Please, do the right thing ditch the fur! #furfreela
The average slaughterhouse kills over 9,000 rabbits each day. These rabbits are bred SPECIFICALLY for their fur. Rabbits bred for their meat are usually killed around the age of 10-12 weeks when their flesh is a paler color which is more popular with consumers. By contrast, ‘fur’ rabbits are killed at several months old by which time they have developed a thicker skin and coat.
These rabbits are held in crates piled high in view of those being slaughtered. Faeces and urine trickle down from rabbits in crates above them.
Rabbits can scream. It’s a heart wrenching sound only heard when a rabbit is in extreme pain or stress. It is a sound heard all too often in these slaughterhouses. One by one, these rabbits have their throats slit. Many rabbits are not killed instantly. Still alive, with their feet shackled in the assembly line of death—they must wait to bled to death. Their meat is then discarded and their pelts collected to be made into a coat, a pair of earmuffs, or even a keychain.
Compassion is the fashion. Go fur free! #furfreela
Mink are naturally wild animals and do not adapt to life in captivity. On fur farms, the average cage size for mink and other fur bearing animals is roughly 12” by 18” — slightly larger than legal sized paper.
Their abysmal living conditions and confinement can result in self-mutilation, cannibalism, and high-level stress that makes animals more susceptible to disease. One Danish study found that as many as 17% of ranch raised mink will die prematurely.
THINK BEFORE YOU MINK!
Fall fashion will begin making its way into stores soon. Unfortunately for the animals, this means fur season is just around the corner.
These are the faces behind every fur coat. This is why we fight. So if you see real fur for sale— walk out.
No retailer that sells real animal fur deserves your business. Let them know why you’re not shopping at their establishment. SPEAK UP! If you want to take action, let us know and we’ll help you out.
Compassion is the only fashion.

Yo INTERMIX! Get the FOX outta here!
Fur Free LA

If every person shares this petition with just ONE person, we can more than DOUBLE the signatures we already have.
Petitions are important because EVERY signature sends an email to Kitson's top buyers and executives. Petitions are the easiest and most widespread form of activism. All it takes is one click, and you’ve already made a difference.
We’re throwing a holiday themed protest at Kitson on December 22nd! Faux ho ho ho! Come! It’ll be fun! We’re bringing soy nog and fauxlicious santa hats!
RSVP HERE: KITSON Fur Protest - Holiday Edition http://on.fb.me/Sov9ZG
Holy Shiitake Mushrooms! Fur Free Friday had an amazing turnout in Beverly Hills.
P.S. We have two upcoming protests starting next week:
KITSON was recently busted for selling REAL fur as faux fur. Even after they “apologized” for their murderous mistake, Kitson continued to sell real fur.
These are the three items Kitson sold as “faux fur” that were tested by The Humane Society, and proven to be real animal fur. The Street Level purse that was sold as faux fur, but determined to canine fur, is STILL in stores.
This is unacceptable, Kitson.
We urge everyone to boycott Kitson until they go fur free. If you’re in the LA area, we’ll be protesting outside their Robertson Blvd location tomorrow 11/17, from 1-4pm.
If you’re not in LA or unable to attend, please voice your concerns to Kitson by signing and sharing our Kitson fur free petition (change.org/kitson)
