UK: AllSaints joins ban on angora
Fashion retailer AllSaints has joined a number of other firms in banning the use on angora from its future collections following pressure from animal rights group PETA.
The retailer has also removed all products containing angora from its store shelves and racks, joining the likes of & Other Stories, Asos, Boden, Calvin Klein, Cheap Monday, Cos, Mango, Monki and Tommy Hilfiger, according to a list supplied by PETA.
The animal rights group last year exposed "shocking" conditions at farms in China, where 90% of the world's angora wool is sourced.
And it says Chinese media reports suggest boycotting the fibre has led to a "rapid decrease in demand" and a "plummeting price" of angora wool.
Retailers including Arcadia Group (which includes BHS, Burton, Dorothy Perkins, Evans, Miss Selfridge, Outfit, Topman, Topshop and Wallis), Debenhams, Forever 21, H&M, Lands' End, Marks & Spencer, New Look, Next and Primark have pledged to keep angora out of their future collections but are still selling existing angora stock.
