Stop Fur At Flannels started this petition to Flannels

We call on the fashion retail company, Flannels (owned by Frasers Group), to stop selling real fur and permanently reinstate a fur-free policy.

Although Flannels has made numerous claims in the past that it would no longer sell real fur, the company has repeatedly failed to adhere to its word and is still selling it. In response to this, a renewed national campaign, Stop Fur At Flannels, is calling on the company to end its involvement in the fur trade once and for all.

Fur production was banned under the Fur Farming (Prohibition) Act back in 2000, after a public consultation found overwhelming support from the British public to end it. The fur industry is synonymous with horrific cruelty to animals. Investigations have shown animals kept in barren, often filthy cages on fur farms, caught in the wild by agonising leg-hold traps and, at slaughter, electrocuted and even skinned alive.

As a result of the awareness raised about the brutality of the fur industry, real fur products are widely boycotted by the British public and most retailers already proudly have fur-free policies in place. There is no excuse for cruelty to animals, and sophisticated, luxurious alternatives, i.e. faux (fake) fur, are already widely available and offer a viable, fashionable solution.

In trying to position themselves as trend-setters, fashion companies should look to be regarded as forward-thinkers and innovators. However, for those that still sell real fur - including Flannels - they instead convey themselves as callous, outdated and out of touch with the public. The only place the fur trade belongs is in the past!

Flannels, please end your involvement with the fur trade now!
