CITES & WASHINGTON

CITES AND WASHINGTON CONVENTION

 

CITES stands for Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Flora and Fauna, and it is a global agreement between governments to follow rules to monitor, regulate, or ban international trade in species under threat.  Issued in 1973 by 21 countries, the convention has been signed in Washington D.C. to be fully applied in 1975.  Until today, 182 parties and trade have regulated more than 35,000 species.  The CITES certification guarantees for ethic crocodile farming.  We personally select our crocodile skins from renowned suppliers, and a CITES certification is delivered automatically each time we make the acquisition of a crocodile skin.  We file our CITES certifications carefully in order to have traceability of every single crocodile skin used for our collections.
