You Can Help PETA US Get Under Urban Outfitters’ Skin

Human skin is “in”. That’s according to Urban Outraged, a new “shop” set up by PETA US, which features products made from human-derived leather. Built to appear like a real online shopping experience, its goal is to make visitors question why it’s deemed acceptable to use the skin of any living, feeling being for fashion. And yes, it’s as disturbing as it sounds.


PETA has been calling on Urban Outfitters brands – including Anthropologie, Free People, and Urban Outfitters – to stop selling cruel animal-derived materials. Skin is torn from cows to make leather, birds are held down while handfuls of feathers are ripped out of their sensitive skin, and sheep are often beaten and mutilated by workers – but the brands refuse to act.


A lot of us need to get loud if we want to make a difference for cows, birds, sheep, and other animals suffering for clothing sold at Urban Outfitters – that’s where you come in.

Follow the steps below to share the “Urban Outraged” website:
