This was determined by two independent external laboratories that were commissioned by TOM TAILOR. The expert valuation report by Prof. Dr. Martin Möller, Director at the Deutsche Wollforschungsinstitut / Inhaber Lehrstuhl für Textilchemie und Makromolekulare Chemie at the RWTH Aachen (German Wool Research Institute / Chair of textile chemistry and macromolecular chemistry at the RWTH Aachen), proves that the fur does not stem from domestic cats.
Another microscopic investigation of the Forschungsinstitut für Leder und Kunststoffbahnen gGmbH (research institute for leather and synthetic panels) (“FILK”) affirms this finding.
Furthermore, this expert opinion has shown by means of a hair structure comparison a match with the morphologic characteristics of the raccoon dog’s fur. The raccoon dog is a wild animal and primarily found in Siberia and Asia and does not fall under the EU trading ban.
TOM TAILOR regrets that against the Company’s principles real fur was processed. The queried cap was immediately withdrawn from the product range already on 19 December 2013.
TOM TAILOR intensifies its measures so as to ensure that every step of the production process is monitored even closer in the near future. Thereby, the Company will not only check on the general processing and fitting of the items, but in particular increase controls of the materials used.
TOM TAILOR points out that this incident occurred as an isolated case. At TOM TAILOR the rule clearly applies not to use real fur. In addition, the Company approves the EU regulation concerning the traceable labelling of real fur products.
