Chanel has announced it will no longer use fur and exotic leather, which includes crocodile, lizard, snake and stingray skins in its future collections. Without unveiling its projects any further, the luxury fashion label cited the difficulty in sourcing skins that match its ethical standards as one of the reasons behind the decision. “The future of high-end products will come from the know-how of what our atelier is able to do,” Bruno Pavlovsky, President of Chanel, told WWD.

The luxury French label said it will, instead, work on developing new sustainable materials that have a low environmental impact.
