The Washington Convention (CITES) is the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora, an international agreement between governments that came into force in 1975. The basic purpose of this Convention is to ensure that, where allowed, the international commercial exploitation of a species of wild fauna or flora is sustainable for the species and compatible with the ecological role that the species plays in its habitat.
CITES works by subjecting international trade 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.
Elizabeth Lombardi fully supports CITES and only makes products from sustainable sources, using the finest skins exclusively from Italian tanneries. Skins used are listed in appendix II of the Cites convention. These skins are imported into the EU accompanied by an export certificate issued by the government of the country of origin.
