After hearing from over 18,000 PETA members and supporters, Anthropologie announced that it would phase all mohair out of its line in less than a year! It’s joining Arcadia Group (including Topshop and its seven other brands), Gap Inc. (including Gap, Old Navy, Banana Republic, and Athleta), H&M Group, Inditex’s apparel brands (including Zara), and Express, which have all agreed not to use the cruelly obtained material. In the mohair industry, goats often endure a bloody and violent shearing process and most are ultimately killed, often with a dull blade while still conscious. Take action now and tell Forever 21 to join Anthropologie and other retailers in removing mohair from its shelves.
