Campaigns > Harvey Nichols

Anti-Fur activists across the country have continued to campaign against the sale of fur in Harvey Nichols, with regular protests in eight cities across Britain and Ireland.

This is the largest national anti fur campaign for many years, and began when Harvey Nichols dropped its fur free policy in September 2014. Since then tens of thousands of leaflets and postcards have been handed to customers calling for a boycott of Harvey Nichols, as protestors have gathered outside the store's branches in London, Edinburgh, Manchester, Liverpool, Bristol, Dublin, Leeds and Birmingham.

Please continue to contact Harvey Nichols, see right/below for details.

The campaign is in response to the store's decision in September to renege on its fur free policy and start selling real fur again. Since then, campaigners have been outside the various branches every week to protest and call on the public to boycott Harvey Nichols until they reinstate their fur free policy.

In October 2013, Harvey Nichols' head of fashion Paula Reed was forced to resign over her decision to start selling fur again, but despite this the company has continued to sell fur.

Whether or not you can make the protests, please contact Harvey Nichols and ask them to stop selling fur. In particular call the individual stores during the protests to express your support, see for all contact details.

Following a campaign in 2004, Harvey Nichols' Company Director said: "The board has today reviewed the company's fur policy and has decided going forward that we will no longer stock real fur items."

In an email to CAFT dated September 2013, their Press and Marketing Director wrote: "I can confirm that our buyers have bought fur trimmed products for this season. We have taken this opportunity to review our fur policy and from this season onwards we will be stocking fur trimmed products. The fur used is ethically sourced and humanely farmed."

It is vitally important to take action on this, Harvey Nichols is very influential in the world of fashion. If Harvey Nichols gets away with it, other department stores and fashion chains are likely to follow. Department stores are much more important and influential than individual shops in the fashion retail trade.
