Global Brands Group Bans Angora Across Its Controlled Brands

After being contacted by PETA, Global Brands Group—which controls brands like Frye, Juicy Couture, Spyder, Aquatalia, David Beckham, Jennifer Lopez, Jones New York, Buffalo, Joe’s, Rosetti, and Kathy Van Zeeland—has done the right thing for animals and consumers by joining the list of almost 300 retail giants who have already committed to banning angora wool.

With so many warm, stylish, humane materials available today, there’s no excuse to wear or sell angora, which often comes from fully conscious rabbits whose fur is violently torn out every three months as they scream in pain..

Global Brands Group joins hundreds of other top brands that are meeting the tremendous demand for stylish, cruelty-free apparel. Retailers and designers such as Inditex, Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Ann Inc., and Ralph Lauren have permanently banned angora.
