NEW YORK – Luxury fashion group Tapestry Inc, which owns the Coach and Kate Spade brands, has launched an animal leather traceability programme in Brazil in collaboration with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). 

Funded by the group’s philanthropic arm, the Tapestry Foundation, the initiative will look to combat deforestation in the Amazon and Cerrado biomes, related to cattle-raising, by accelerating the development of a standard to certify deforestation and conversion-free (DCF) leather originating from the South American nation.  

“With this grant from the Tapestry Foundation, we reaffirm our commitment to addressing climate change through long-term sustainable solutions while also taking immediate action through reforestation initiatives. In addition, we are inviting other companies, both within and outside our industry, to partner with us in these efforts,” commented Joanne Crevoiserat, Tapestry’s CEO and the chair of the Tapestry Foundation board.
