Animal Welfare

We are committed to the humane treatment of animals and do not use fur or farmed fur, angora rabbit hair or mohair in any ELK products.

We preference wool that is responsibly farmed and processed. We do not support the practice of mulesing and from Winter 2020 will be using 100% non-mulesed merino wool in our knitwear collections.

Leather and skins must be from domesticated farm animals and obtained as a by-product of meat production. This includes our hair on hide leather. We do not use or accept exotic skins.

We do not use any materials from vulnerable or endangered species which appear on either the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species or Convention International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) lists.

Our Animal Welfare policy outlines our strict requirements regarding the humane treatment of animals in our supply chain, and forms part of our ELK Supplier Code of Conduct.
