Racoon fur still in fashion for top Scottish retailer

A FAMOUS upmarket retailer has refused to stop selling fur.

The House of Bruar in Scotland said its garments made of racoon, fox and rabbit were as popular as ever.

PETA is urging the store to remove fur items from its shelves.

But Patrick Birkbeck, the managing director of The House of Bruar, said all its fur clothing was ethically sourced and would remain on sale.

He said: “As a retail business, we try to offer our customers a comprehensive experience and a range of products.

“It is not for us to force customers to buy these products, but we are pleased to provide our customers with choices.”

House of Bruar is one of Scotland’s most successful upmarket retailers and boasts a range of high quality country clothing.

A £495 racoon fur gilet is on sale at the store near Blair Atholl, in Perthshire.

Describing the hooded raccoon gilet on its website, The House of Bruar says: “Truly the last word in opulent luxury, this sumptuously soft hooded gilet is a rare sensual pleasure.”

PETA director Elisa Allen called on The House of Bruar to stop selling fur.

She said: “With so many beautiful, warm vegan fabrics now available, there’s no excuse for selling or wearing fur – and those who do so stand out for all the wrong reasons.”
