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?
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
We target individual stores for the most impact. Without that kind of specificity, we wouldn’t have gotten Planet Blue, Urban Outfitters, LF Stores, True Religion, Dolls Kill, and Brandy Melville to all go fur free!
We are pro faux. Both Planet Blue and Dolls Kill came out with a line of their own faux fur after going fur free. If there’s a market for leather and fur, let’s make it fake.
We don’t want these stores to go out of business, we want them to be in the business of compassionate fashion.
We’re a small team, but our victories would not have been possible without your help. If you’re in the LA area, join us next Saturday December 1st from 1-4pm protesting Kitson on Robertson Blvd.
Hope to see you there!
Most of KITSON’s fur is from a brand called “Dolce Cabo.” These coats and vests are labeled as “Rabbit / Raccoon Fur” and they’re all Made In China.
Now I’d like to point out that raccoons themselves are not native to Asian countries, however raccoon dogs are. Any “raccoon fur” that’s made in China, is actually Raccoon Dog (also known as Tanuki.) They are a part of the canine family.
Regardless of what species, animals raised and slaughtered on Chinese fur farms suffer tremendously. Their entire lives are spent behind the bars of their tiny cages, only to be taken out to be beaten and killed.
China has virtually no animal protection laws, so our best way to fight this barbaric industry is with our dollars. Without demand, there will be no supply of animal abuse.
I urge you NOT to shop at stores like KITSON and INTERMIX as long as they sell real fur. They keep the fur trade, one of the most vapid and cruel industries, alive and kicking. Shop with compassion. Shop fur free!

We had some bad luck with the weather at our inaugural Kitson: Please Stop Selling Fur demo, but we won’t let a little rain prevent us from being a voice for the voiceless.
To those of you that came out yesterday and braved the rain, I cannot thank you enough. So let’s try this again, shall we?

These picture do not do any justice to just how hard it rained today. ☔ It was pretty miserable outside, but that didn’t stop these amazing activists from showing up to today’s #furfree protest outside Kitson.
It was so rainy I was worried no one would show up, but @hrossetti16 @buff_doods @creestaaal and @xtagorix did and I couldn’t have done it without them.

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)
