Victory – India has banned imports of reptile skins!

After hearing from PETA about the extreme suffering of reptiles killed for leather clothing and accessories, Indian officials have issued a notification prohibiting the importation of reptile skins into India as well as the fur of chinchillas, minks, and foxes.

We hope that this move will encourage fashion houses to embrace innovative vegan fabrics and stop peddling items derived from animal suffering.
