Clothing Catalogue Adds Real Fur

Clothing catalogue LaRedoute has now added real fur; this is especially unfortunate because they carry beautiful faux fur.

Please contact them via their website with strong responses about this addition; also, their mission statement (below) refers to their 'ethics;' this may be a good candidate for a complaint to the Better Business Bureau .  Their response to my complaint is also below:

Dear kiley blackman

My name is Eduardo Cruz. I will be helping you with your issue today.  

Thank you for your email.  Per your request, your name has been removed from our mailing list.  You still may receive some of our mailings until the entire process is completed as our catalogs are preprinted three months in advance. We thank you for your patience in this matter.

We offer our customers the newest trends in the fashion industry.  We view freedom of fashion as freedom of expression, and many people are interested in fur because it is such a popular fashion statement. It is in all the magazines and the designers are using it more.

We by no means want to offend anyone who does not choose to own fur products but we believe that consumers want to make their own choices about what they wear and whether or not to wear fur.
