Prada Group bans Kangaroo leather from future fashion collections

Yvonne O'Halloran

Fashion company Prada Group has made the decision to eliminate Kangaroo animal skins from its future collections.

The Prada Group owns Prada, Miu Miu, Car Shoe, and Church’s. Their fashion items, including jackets and shoes, were previously manufactured using Kangaroo leather.

Animal rights charity PETA confirmed the news, praising the brand for making a ‘compassionate decision’, however they have urged them to do more.

They are asking the group to ‘commit to a total ban on all exotic skins, including ostrich, lizard, crocodile, alligator, and snake’.

Yvonne Taylor, director of corporate projects at PETA stated: “Behind every accessory made with kangaroo leather or other exotic skins is a sentient animal who died a horrifying death,”

 “Prada Group’s decision will spare kangaroos immense suffering – and PETA calls on the company to extend its compassion to all exotic animals.”

 The move follows fellow fashion giants Diadora and Versace, who have recently committed to going kangaroo free.
