The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) is a treaty signed by 175 states. CITES regulates the trade in exotic skins.
Gabriel de Lys SAS has officially a CITES Agreement from Paris DRIEE (75) and this, to provide a CITES certificate.
Also, each product made with materials onin exotic skin must be accompanied by its CITES certificate in order to proceed to the smooth progress of its export outside the country of sale and manufacture.
For these reasons all our exotic leather goods come with the CITES documents according to the laws in force. Items purchased in stores will be eligible for immediate delivery of a CITES certificate duly completed by the vendor. In the case of an order placed on the e-shop, the CITES documents will be provided with an additional delay due to the legal export procedure linked to online commerce.
