Thank you Paris!

The city of Paris say’s no to wild animals on circus from 2022. Thus following 18 EU countries and lots of cities world wide. The use and abuse of wildlife in captivity is highly questioned today as we’ve learned about the dark side of trading animals for entertainment, labour, experiments and ”production” of ”natural materials” like leather and feather. Part from being an ethical question, the use and abuse of animals for the benefit of humans is connected to sustainability issues. Food production is one huge provider to climate change. The leather trade another.  Always ask ”from where, by whom and of what” the design item is made. If a producer/shop cannot give this information to you, you should think twice before buying that handsome chair, blanket, cushion or rug…
