Russian fur body seeks labelling parity with faux fur

The organisation representing manufacturers of real fur products in Russia have asked the government to extend the country's track-and-trace labelling scheme to include items made with synthetic fur.

As it stands, clothes, accessories and other articles made from real fur have had to display the Chestny ZNAK labels since 2016, although some items like gloves, footwear and hats are exempt. There is no such requirement for faux fur, and the RPMS trade body argues that the disparity creates unfair competition in the marketplace.

It also says that the situation makes it harder to detect falsification and trafficking in natural fur products, as it allows them to be fraudulently distributed as synthetic to evade controls.
