Los Angeles has become the largest US city to ban fur sales following a unanimous vote from the city council. The decision prohibits the sale and manufacture of products made either fully or partly with fur, and will cover apparel, accessories and footwear. The ban does not include leather or lambskin.

Following the first vote, the motion must pass a second ballot and — if it passes — will become law two years following that date. Councilmember Bob Blumenfeld, who introduced the bill, released a statement explaining that “there’s no excuse for being complicit in this inhumane and unnecessary trade,” before going on: “With this vote, we are telling the world that Angelenos care about animal welfare … We will continue to be a leader in animal welfare efforts and must work with other cities and states until this vile practice is ended across our nation.”

Recently, Burberry became the latest luxury house to ditch fur.
