Shops Selling Fur in Dublin

Posted in General news by Glô! on the November 5th, 2008

The Hat Shop, Dublin

On the 13th of October, after spotting some hats made from rabbit fur, as mentioned in the label, ALiberation sent a letter as well as a fur information pack to the shop, which is situated in Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre, ground floor.

On the 15th of October, a representative of the shop contacted ALiberation by phone. She said she had made an honest mistake and that they will not sell fur again.

On the Sunday 2nd of November, 3 fur hats were still visible on the top shelf. The shop may be selling on the last fur items that they had in stock.
In the absence of a Fur Free Policy, ALiberation will continue to monitor this store.

A note on rabbit fur: Many garments labeled as rabbit fur are not always made from rabbit.


Cat fur is often labeled as “rabbit fur”.
Only a DNA test can show what kind of animal fur was used for the garment.
