The market for dog and cat leather is even greater than the fur market, because the origin of these leather products can hardly be traced. There is no DNA test to be performed because the hairs of the fur are removed.

As a consumer you can do something!

Don't buy any leather products coming from Asia (eg China, South Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, the Philippines and Indonesia). It is often tempting because they are very cheap. If the product is not labeled, ask the seller what country the product is originated. If the seller does not know, don't buy the product. Only if the label says the product is made of cow or calf leather, you can trust no dog or cat skin is used.

The SIAM methode is the only way to track dog- and cat fur.

Since January 1st, 2009 it is illegal to import dog and cat fur. However, the law is hardly ever acted upon and is very often violated. We want to expose people who break the law without using violence.
