Global brands ban angora wool after PETA investigation
I'm not a huge fan of PETA, but this seems to be good work from them. I'm glad pressure has been put on these companies because imo fur is completely unnecessary when we have plenty of comfy alternatives. fyi, I would advise against watching the video, it's extremely disturbing.American clothing company PVH Corp. -- the parent company of Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, IZOD, ARROW, Van Heusen, and other brands -- say they will discontinue the use of angora wool in its products.
The move by PVH follows the release of last month's graphic video of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals' investigation into angora farms in China
In the video, Angora rabbits can be heard screaming as farmers rip out their wool until the animals are bald. The rabbits are then thrown back into their cages and appear to be stunned and in shock.
