The store "The Shoe Company" is selling beanies, headbands and toques with fur on them originating from China.
I discovered this in their British Columbia locations. Mink, Fox and who knows what other kind of animals were used. With mislabelled product not identifying some fur and its origin. One of the beanies was labelled as "stetson brand" with a basic label "Made in China" the others were "mitchie's" I could not locate the same product online and have not been able to find these products through the companies websites.
As most are aware, it is hard to be certain with animal products from china, whether it is not in-fact Dog or Cat fur. And MOST CERTAINLY is not Humane in any which way. Regardless, these frivolous items are not worth the lives and suffering that these creatures endure. We Must boycott The Shoe Company, Shoe Warehouse, Townshoes and Designer Shoe Warehouse. These companies are all under the same ownership. **The message must be sent that we do NOT support this cruel industry and it is NOT a trend we support!!** The following information is all I have found...
