Exotic and non-exotic skins
At Eva Lobo London, we are aware of sensitive issues surrounding conservation issues and using specialist materials to produce our Luxury Goods. We fully sympathise with the concern attached to these matters and therefore use only ethically sourcing skins and material from highly selective factories and manufacturers conforming to the relevant International Legislation. Eva Lobo London fully supports the reasons for and efforts behind the Introduction and implementation of CITES, the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species.
Information on cites Eva Lobo London & CITES
CITES (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) is an international agreement between governments. Its aim is to ensure that international trade in specimens of wild animals and plants does not threaten their survival. The aim is to protect certain plants and animals by regulating and monitoring their international trade to prevent it reaching unsustainable levels.
Because the trade in wild animals and plants crosses borders between countries, the effort to regulate it requires international cooperation to safeguard certain species from over-exploitation. CITES was conceived in the spirit of such cooperation. Today, it accords varying degrees of protection to more than 35,000 species of animals and plants, whether they are traded as live specimens, fur coats or dried herbs.
CITES was drafted as a result of a resolution adopted in 1963 at a meeting of members of IUCN (The World Conservation Union). The text of the Convention was finally agreed at a meeting of representatives of 80 countries in Washington, D.C., the United States of America, on 3 March 1973, and on 1 July 1975 CITES entered in force and the UK became a Party in 1976. There are more than 168 Parties to the Convention. The CITES Secretariat is administered by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).
How CITES works
CITES works by subjecting international trade in specimens of selected species to certain controls. All import, export, re-export and introduction from the sea of species covered by the Convention has to be authorized through a licensing system. Each Party to the Convention must designate one or more Management Authorities in charge of administering that licensing system and one or more Scientific Authorities to advise them on the effects of trade on the status of the species.
The species covered by CITES are listed in three Appendices, according to the degree of protection they need.
Appendix I includes species threatened with extinction. Trade in specimens of these species is permitted only in exceptional circumstances.
Appendix II includes species not necessarily threatened with extinction, but in which trade must be controlled in order to avoid utilization incompatible with their survival.
Appendix III contains species that are protected in at least one country, which has asked other CITES Parties for assistance in controlling the trade. Changes to Appendix III follow a distinct procedure from changes to Appendices I and II, as each party’s is entitled to make unilateral amendments to it.
For information on CITES, please visit www.cites.org
Ethical and Sustainable Sourcing
At Eva Lobo London, we only produce our products using skins from sustainable and ethical sources. We do not use animals listed in Appendix I of the convention. In the case of animals listed in appendix II of the Cites convention skins are imported into the EU accompanied by an export certificate issued by the government of the country of origin.
The convention provides a framework for legislation and process in the countries that are a party. Hence the actual rules and legislation vary from country to country. Therefore, we have used the rules and regulations applicable at our website that allows us to only sells merchandise made from CITES listed animals to country that permit us to ship according to the convention.
