Harrods is one of only two department stores in the UK which continues to sell real fur, even though the production of fur is illegal in the UK.
Although it is disappointing that Harrods is selling fur, it is also encouraging that hundreds of other department stores in the country now have a fur-free policy, a testament to the many years of successful campaigning by CAFT and other anti-fur campaign groups and individuals.
Nevertheless we are not being complacent and are continuing to campaign to put pressure on Harrods to join its rival stores and stop supporting the bloody fur trade.
Fashion blog "The Fashion Spell" recently reported from and showed a short film about the ongoing campaign against the sale of fur in Harrods department store. Read more here.
Harrods' store in Knightsbridge is Europe's largest department store. The last survey at Harrods revealed a wide range of real fur garments on sale on display throughout the store, and included items made from beaver, chinchilla, red fox, arctic fox, mink, musquash, rabbit, wolf, coyote and squirrel.
Harrods protests usually take place every Saturday, as well as special occasions such as sale openings and other events at the store, see below for protest reports. If you are interested in taking part in the protests email london [at] caft.org.uk
