Fur bans have been introduced in numerous countries around the world in recent years prohibiting the farming of some or all species for fur.
Legislation to ban or phase out fur farming is adopted in the UK and Northern Ireland (2000), Austria (2004), Croatia (2006), Bosnia and Herzegovina (2009), The Netherlands (2023), Slovenia (2013), Republic of Macedonia (2014), Czech Republic (2019), Norway (2025 and Belgium (2019).
In these countries, animal welfare concerns have been given priority over the fur industry’s interests.
Furthermore, countries as Switzerland, Germany, Italy, Denmark, and Sweden have adopted stricter regulations which have phased out the breeding of all animals for fur or the breeding of certain species, such as foxes.
In October, Gucci President and CEO Marco Bizzarri announced at the annual Kering Talk that the Italian house led by Alessandro Michele the new art director of Gucci was taking a stand against animal fur; in fact, the brand had already gone fur-free for its Spring 2018 collection, shown a month prior.
And while Gucci certainly wasn’t the first major fashion institution to ban the long-controversial practice, it did kickstart a movement that has seen many of Michele’s contemporaries the following suit and making fur-free commitments of their own.
These recent developments, along with the labels that have been fur-free for years and years (looking at you, Stella McCartney), as well as the varying policies of retailers and magazines, can understandably get confusing — especially for consumers looking to vote with their dollar, so to speak, by supporting companies that support animal rights. As the fair and ethical treatment of animals becomes more and more of priority for brands and shoppers alike, we’ve compiled the following running list: a comprehensive guide to every single fashion house, retailer and magazine that has ditched fur, which we’ll update each time a new brand goes fur-free.
