Selfridges to ban leather exotic skins
Following recent announcements by Chanel and Victoria Beckham, Selfridges is the latest fashion name to ban exotic skins.
The storied English department store will phase out products made from reptile hides and snakeskin by February 2020 but continue to carry items created with agriculturally sourced leather from traditional livestock.
The retailer already banned real fur from its assortment in 2005.
