Kitson’s continued use of real fur is incredibly disappointing. While we cannot reveal the findings of our latest undercover investigation just yet, we have uncovered some shocking discoveries. Watch this space… #furfreela
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.

The historic West Hollywood fur ban is in jeopardy! The Fur Information Council of America (FICA), the politically connected lobbying arm of the fur industry, which happens to be headquartered in West Hollywood, is developing a legal strategy to overturn the city’s ordinance.
Both West Hollywood city council candidates Steve Martin and Sam Borelli want to overturn the fur ban if elected on March 5th.
*We cannot let this happen.*
It is imperative that we re-elect compassionate candidates Jeffery Prang and John Duran.
Please share and help us get the word out. The animals need your vote!
Our website is currently under construction as we’re about to launch the Shop Fur Free LA store, so we’ve been a little quiet the last few weeks. But all that’s about to change!
Kitson has continued to support the heinous fur industry and ignore our pleas for compassion, and we’re not cool with that. Join us won’t you?
On January 4th it announced that The Gap had acquired INTERMIX. The Gap is very open about it being fur-free. http://bit.ly/12CNGWH In fact, all of The Gap’s brands (Banana Republic, Old Navy, Piperlime and Athleta) are fur free.
Now that INTERMIX has a new parent company, it’s imperative that we contact The Gap and let them now how we feel about INTERMIX selling real fur.
On Monday January 7th we’re asking everyone to contact The Gap Inc and urge them ban the sale of fur at INTERMIX.
